Odisha: A Pictorial dedication to one of India’s most beautiful regions

By Kamalini Natesan
We leave Odisha, satisfied, and full. The rain gods have splattered us forever, and Odisha will remain embedded, as a verdant memory of temples, coconut palms and a very kind people, who make excellent food. We repeatedly tasted the baked cottage cheese-like sweet, called Chhena Pod Pitha, which literally means burnt and baked cottage cheese. Its melt-in-the-mouth experience, very lightly sweetened, is much like Odisha itself.

Two Poems

By Kamalini Natesan
The child runs,
Abandoning home,
Want more, says he.
It hurts, I bleed,
Askance – why me?
