Gopalpur on Sea Orissa Tour on Bike

Driving the NH5 with the cool breeze in the early morning, amid sleek layer of Fog on the Bike is one of the best way to explore , your destination place in India. As per the statistics the Indian Roadways are 85% complete with the standard roads, the villages in the interior India is also well connected with the Prime Minister Sadak Yojna Roads.

On the way from Cuttack to Gopalpur on Sea we passed many of the tourist attraction places like Barkul and Rambha on the Shores of Chillika Lake. Crossing Chillika Lake rim with the picturesque scenic beauty of lush green mountains is memorable one.

We had our stop overs in regular intervals to make us comfortable. Stopovers were ment to have water and food that we carry. Someone who is an avid bike traveller , must have known the relaxing moments when having the water splash on the face after a long drive and a cool breeze from the mountains, touches the just washed face in the glaring sun. We do had the same experience on the whole trip, enjoying every single turn of the snaky new National Highway, passing by the Trucks and Lorries that carry Food and essential commodities through out India.

The first Impression on the arrival at Gopalpur on Sea beach area is splendid for the very reason of our trip. A small gateway at the Sea " Swarga Dwar" the Gate to the Heavens is one of the architecture you first see on reach.

As it was noon and we are looking for the foods before the place to stay. Though we looked out for some of the hotels facing the beach but found out the most of theme were occupied and those we were heard of from the websites and Google searches were not to the mark. As per the example the Hotel kalinga is charging about Rs 550 to 1100 rs for double occupancy , but the rooms were too stinging with the smell of the human waste , coming from the outside , just in front of the sea beach. So we decided to have the accommodation at the Panthanivas.

Panthanivas at Gopalpur on Sea is beautifully located, huge open space to roam , Flowers and bushes to enjoy the evenings. But we didnt find any room vaccant for us. So we took our much awaited, Stomach crunching Lunch at Panthanivas resturant (Rice, Curd, Chilli Paneer, Dal Fry, green Salad ) .

Just beside the Panthanivas is the Youth Hostel with a great building architecture and We had our stay confirmed with a nominal fees of Rs 100 ((Rs 50 /bed) . The Hostel is governed by the very Disciplined Mr Panigrahi, who is very Cooperative and helpful.

The Dormoratory , we took for our stay is well furnished with Bathroom, Wash Basin, Miror and Latrine. The Sound of See and the cool breeze from it can be enjoyed by opening the Sea Facing balcony Door. From the whole Gopalpur area that we experinced, I would recoment the stay at Panthanivas and Youth hostel as the best , for its Location and service.

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.
