JULY and AUGUST remained without much travel, apart from a on-off tour to Gwalior , Jhansi and Orchha and a family trip to Tarini temple in Kendujhar. I spent most of my time at home in Sambalpur with my parents or reading the lores and fan-fictions of Game of Thrones.
Another similarly beautiful small town I’ve visited, taking advantage of my uncle’s posting, is the town of Sambalpur. It is situated in the north-west part of Odisha, beside the river Mahanadi. The river actually has separated Sambalpur and Hirakud from Burla.
