Its time to change the gears in the development vehicle...


Yesterday one of my school friends called me and I was happy to get to talk to him after many years. On the go we asked each other about the whereabouts of others and spent some time in remembering what are they doing and all. We remembered the happy old days and cherished. After the call I just thought where we all are now & why. From a small sub urban village to the metros in the country, we have explored the opportunities around. Why could we not be in our home state Odisha only prosper? For all such queries, my mind answered in a way which neither I nor any other Odia will like. We in Odisha put focus on Children's education and spend a lot in it and we too have a equally best education system in place. But after we complete the studies we aim towards the metros for employment and to earn a descent job. A rough estimation figures out the number of engineering colleges to 30+  and close to 40000 students pass out every year from these colleges and look for employment and its shocking to know that 90% of these students have to leave Odisha aim towards the metros to justify their degree & employment. The condition of students doing normal graduation is better not to mention. Here one question arises why these people go out & work for some other state and why can’t we provide them opportunity & use them in the domestic development  of Odisha ? If all other developing states can create opportunities for growth and can progress, why can’t Odisha do the same way? 

Primarily we call ourselves as a farm based state and we keep focusing on the same, but time has come to change the gear and move to the next level. In that race I am not saying to stop farming and sit idle. We should keep the focus on but additionally we need to built infrastructure and attract investor and get opportunities for other industries to grow and create employment. and to lure the investors what we need; basic infrastructure as compared to other states, Availability of ample natural resources for power usage, better transport system(road-rail-air), availability of skilled & semi skilled labor, Quick government clearance & laws enabling business, easy & ample availability of power and wherever possible creation of special and moderate economic zones to lure investors. Out of the all above said factors for creating a growth movement & creating opportunities in Odisha, I dont think we missing in any single factor except the one one called a Political willingness to do so. I strongly feel a gap which if put in right time & place can change the gear and take Odisha to the next level. We should now aim at the outside investors like the TATA, Ambanis, Zindals, Mittals and other international investor to step into Odisha. I can see there are many projects pending at different intent levels which need a government nod to kick start. And fast pace growth will of course need a supporting hand from the govt. 
Now time has come for us to compete with the sates like Gujrat, Maharahtra, Kerala & Tamil Nadu and all other developing states. For this if it is required to support a regional or a national party we should be ready to vote for as after all what we need is a developed and a next generation state leading to growth & glory.

May the days come soon

Long live Odisha 
Long live Odia..

Ek ghadi ki kahani...

यह चेन्नई मैं मेरी पहली शर्दी है ... हलाकि मैं पिछले साल भी यहीं था मगर मैं शायद इस जलवायु मैं ठीक से अपने आप को ढाल नहीं पाया था. आज कल यहाँ सुबह की नींद बड़ी मजेदार लगती है और बिस्तर छोड़ने को मन नहीं करता.पर क्या करें सुबह सुबह ऑफिस भी तो जाना है ना तो उठाना पड़ता है.हाला की मेरे ऑफिस की कार्यकालिनी समय सुबह ९ बजे से लेके शाम के ६ बजे तक है मगर मैं क्या कहूँ मुझे अपनी आप पे शर्म अति है ये कहते हुए की मैं रोज़ १०- १०.३० से पहले ऑफिस नहीं पहंच पाता था.और क्यों की मैं खुद मानव संसाधन बिभाग मैं हूँ तो मुझे बड़ा अटपटा लगता था और शर्मिंदगी भी लगती थी. खैर एक दिन मेरे अन्दर का शेर जाग गया अचानक और मुझे बोला के बेटा अब उठ जा और कुछ जुगाड़ कर. तो मैंने पिछले रविवार को ही बाज़ार गया और एक अलार्म वाली घडी लेके आया.वैसे उसकी कुछ आबस्यक्ता  नहीं थी क्यों के मेरे घर के पास वाली चर्च से हर एक घंटे मैं अलार्म बजता रहता है. मगर क्या करें कुछ करना जो था, तो मैने एक बजने वाली घडी ले आया और उसे सबसे अधिक आवाज में चालू करके सो गया.  सुबह ६ बजे जैसे ही वो बजा मैं उठ खड़ा हुआ. सुबह की शांत बातावरण मैं मु…

Odia , Odisha & its people.

After years I tried my hands in writing a letter in Odia and believe me it was difficult to write as the finger movement needed much to work on the paper to write the fonts. For your knowledge i should tell you that unlike English the letters in oriya are much complicated and need a better effort to write a good hand-writing. But let me tell you it was really tough to get something on paper,forget about the handwriting.But one thing is for sure my fingers remembered the letters so correctly that i was surprised at times when i wrote conjoint letters. It took me 20-30 minutes to write a full page letter expressing my thought at that time. I managed to get an average handwriting & one can only manage to read & understand what I wrote.

I remember my School Days when I used to speak , read & write in Odia only and read English as a subject in the class. When somebody spoke good English then, people used to admire him with great respect &considered English as a better lang…

The epic story behind Lord Jagannath...

The epic story behind the the origin of Lord Jagannath goes back to ancient days when present day Lord Jagannath was being worshiped as Nila Madhava by a tribal head called Biswabasu. The name Nilamadhaba comes from the mountain that is always covered by the dense forest making it tougher for anyone to reach.The story goes, in the state of Malwa there was a king called Indradyumna who was an ardent devotee of lord Vishnu.His utter devotion landed him to see Lod Vishnu in his manly eyes and he in his prayers pleaded the lord to give him Darhan. After long in a divine dream he was told that Lord Vishnu can be seen in his best form in the state of then Utkala. The king then send Vidyapati to find & submit a report on Lord Vishnu. Bidyapati, after a very secret research got to know about Biswabasu & the lord Nilamadhaba , but upon request he denied to show him the way to Nilamadhaba. Failing to get the way to Nilamadhaba by hook or crook Bidyapari Decided to stay there and by pla…
