Balijatra Cuttack 2009 - Orissa



Over the past several months I was wandering through the cultural diversity of Indian subcontinent. From the inauguration ceremony of Gopals home at Taddepalligudem, than a Visit to Abhirams Naval Base at Vishakapatam to the Balijatra Trade fare and Cultural exchange in Cuttack.

Recently Concluded Balijatra 2009 at Cuttack , Orissa is more than a event to recon with. Simply it’s the best platform for the traders in end number of Products category , to showcase there products and have there business brands visible in the Public in East India. Balijatra is very historic in its conception and in the current years its been expanded a lot in its total presence and activity.

One of the best sight in the balijatra is the Gandhi Market or the Gandhi Shilpa bazzar , which is a collection of goods and products from the Rural India. One can have the touch of the teracota paintings, mud pots, rare designs , cotton and jute works etc .

This year I had snapped lot of pictures within the five days of my visit to the Balijatra fare. I loved those pictures as much as any one can think of after seeing the Artifacts. Some of the pictures were featured below and others can be seen at the eOdisha website.

Double Yield from SRI Paddy Cultivation Technique

Here is my First Experience with the SRI (System of Rice Intensification) technique in Paddy Cultivation. From Documenting most of its growth through out last 3 months is amazingly feel good for me. 
In August we used single grain to transplant in a distance of 12 inches (though recommended 10 inches apart). In the Traditional cultivation the Distance is just 3-4 inches between the seedlings of Paddy while rowing. -see Picture below(left). The Results were astonishing , as for each single grain Produced an average of  900+ grains and that too without the use of any Chemical spray, fertilizer and insecticide. (Only Cow Dung Manure applied Prior to Rowing the Paddy ).  YES THAT'S IT !!
Again the Best Part is This year is without Rains and Water scarcity is all the way. Still the After Effects of SRI Technique Works brilliant .. Check out the Image Below: 
NOTE: The Real Assessment- Result will be done after Harvesting finally in next 20 -25 days.
