Odisha Doesn't Deserve to Be on the Travel Map of India; Here's Why.

Tripoto

“I am from Kendujhar...”

“What?”

“Odisha.”

“Odisha?! Where is that?”

“Is it in South India?”

“No.”

“Is it in North India?”

“No.”

What an odd place Odisha is; neither in the North nor in the South.

Odisha deserves to be put off the travel map of India. I will tell you why:

1. It has ugly and mundane landscapes

8. One should visit South for architecture, why would they take a detour towards Odisha?
