Bhubaneshwar, in Orissa, on the oceanfront, soft sunny sands and magical sunsets! Also, the land of tyrannical hurricanes and annual flooding that washes away coastal viallges and all they contain.
What remains then?? Well.. everything! Everything that Time and Tide cannot wash away. The Dharohar, the heritage of millennia living in every cell of the organisms and humans who breathe the air and drink the water of that land….
Those hand, poor? Yes, if money is the index…. in hardship? Yes, if comfort means big houses…. but truly rich!
Wealthy, rich, empowered!! For they have that which money cannot buy and machines cannot as yet make. The ability to bring stone to life!!!
