    Day 12 Bhubaneswar to Burkul(Chilika)
    26th March 2013

    Bhubaneswar… the place where I spent the most memorable days of my life. If I had an option to rewind and play a certain part of my life again, the time spent here would have been it. After the few days of nostalgic time spent here I had to move on. To the next destination! The images which I still see around me at this city, it was time to say goodbye to them. It was hard so I packed all those images in my memories as I left by 11:20 from Bhubaneswar to Burkul (Chilika).

    Nice roads started as soon as I crossed fire station near Burmunda square. The construction work that was going on was limited to this junction. I was going away, a bit emotional… a little sad and I saw the four lane highway extending its arm to welcome me into its embrace. Within two hours I reached Panthniwas at Burkul (Chilika). 1:30 pm I checked in at Panthniwas just in-front of the majestic Chilika Lake, the largest coastal lagoon in India and second largest lagoon in the world.

    There was renovation work going on at the Resort. The cottage was very spacious with the view to the lake. Chilika is the largest wintering ground for migratory birds in the Indian Subcontinent. Though this was not the season but still had heard a lot about this from a friend, Saurabh Ashtamkar who taught me and also made me experience birding. With my little experience in birding I still went around the Lake in the evening to recognize few birds all on my own.

    A Kingfisher fishing from its perch, a Sandpiper bobbing its tail near the shore of the lake, few Stilts finding food in the shallow waters of the lake, a bunch of egrets flying back to their home, a wagtail searching for food, terns flying and diving into the lake, and few raptors keeping an eye on all this from up above. Even I saw a pair of Moorhen making out. :P and large flocks of ducks far into the water lakes.

    All around there were birds. Different species of birds and this was not even the season for the birds to arrive. There was a lot to explore around and the day was coming to an end as the sun started setting behind the hills. I sat near the lake to watch the sun set.

    Total distance covered: 108 kms

    Total distance covered till now: 2565 kms

    How is it possible to feel nostalgia for a world I never knew?

    I don't know why but I am not able to see the images in this travelogue. But no problem as I am a software developer, wrote a few lines of easy javascript and all the images are there. If any of you are facing same issue as me then here is the script i used:

    var elm = jQuery("<img>");
    elm = elm.attr("src",jQuery(this).attr("href"));

    How to use: On chrome browser just press F12, on newly opened screen select console tab. Paste this script there and hit enter. That's it. If you are not able to see images still then sorry bro but it worked for me.
