City Of Joy and Hirakud Dam - Techyog Team Trip

Set Out on Our Journey to Kolkata and Sambalpur Hirakud Dam On the night of 15th Dec 2009, from Cuttack Railway Station. As this was the Planned Trip We had booked the train travel ticket for the three part journey.

Part 1 . Cuttack to Howrah in Puri Howrah Special Express.
Part 2 : Howrah to Sambalpur in Samaleswari Express
Part 3 : Sambalpur to Cuttack in Raipur - Bhubaneswar Express.

The Trip went well and as planned. The Best Part of Our Planning was to save lot of Traveling Time, so I planned accordingly, by making all the Journey in the Nights. Which means the traveling was done in the Sleeping Hours of Night and we reach the destination early morning . So that we got at least of 10 - 12 hours of whole day for sight seeing.

For Kolkata We had to make two things sure. One is to enjoy the Kolkata as it is by traveling through the most convenient way and to use all mode of communication like Local Train, Mini Bus, Kolkata Metro Train, Ferries or the Hoogly river boats and some Walk down the Streets. The Other thing to keep in mind while traveling is to visit the best Places out of the Crowds. So as the Plan goes with the BELUR MATH( Swami Vivekananda Place), Kashipur Ghat , Dakhineswar Temple, Esplanade Area, Victoria Memorial, Vidyasagar Setu and Of-course Howrah Bridge.

On our boating trip from Kashipur Ghat of Belur Math to Dakhineswar Temple, Met a very Nice Person from Poland names Lucek and his Wife. So I asked him to Visit the State of Odisha (Previously called Orissa)

At Sambalpur We visited Hiarkud Dam from Hirakud Station . We hired a Auto Rickshaw for Rs 450/= For a trip from Hirakud station to The Hirakud Dam 61 Water Gate View and Gandhi Minaar. The View from Gandhi Minaar is astonishing as some part of the 35 Km long Dam en-closer is seen with the Dam Reservoir water stretching to 100 of miles radius. The Hirakud Dam view is breath taking. Its a must Visit Sight in Sambalpur.

Later on the Day We got to Goal Bazaar Area where my Cousin residing. and left for Cuttack back after a Dinner at her house and enjoying the kids (Litun and Sifa) echo talks.

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.
