Did you hear about the Men’s Hockey World Cup taking place this year? Well, the awesome capital city of Odisha, Bhubaneswar is where you can catch all the action as it happens! People in Odisha take the country’s national sport very seriously. Due to this massive event happening in the city of Bhubaneswar, the whole city has got its most fabulous makeover.
Amidst the buzz from the Hockey World Cup, the state government has launched a festival called .FEST (Read: Dot Fest). I landed in Bhubaneswar one fine morning to attend the .FEST. With wide and beautiful roads, gorgeous murals on the streets, dedicated cycling lanes painted in red and pedestrian walking tracks colored in green I felt instantly welcome here. The whole city has a beautiful modern vibe which was pleasant.
