'Meet Odisha's celestial beauty in New Delhi' by K.J.S.Chatrath

I was in Odisha on  a short visit about a fortnight back and renewed my admiration for this wonderful part of India. Last week I spent a few hours in the National Museum, New Delhi on the Janpath. On buying the ticket, one passes through a corridor where on both sides are kept some of the finest specimen's of Indian art.

At the end of the corridor one reaches a circular verandah wer epriceless statues adorn either side of it. The first statue that I saw on the right was that of a 'Celestial Beauty' from Konark, Odisha. It dates back to 13th century A.D. Having just returned from Konark I could know the very high level at which there are huge statues of celestial beauties all around the temple.
Take a look.

 As I have been saying 'Odisha is one place you must visit before you die.

And now with a remarkable team of Harvard educated Ms. Arti Ahuja as the Principal Secretary Tourism and the dashing young Nitin Jawale as Director Tourism, Odisha is set to become the favourite destination both of domestic as well as foreign travellers.

Good Luck!
