      Odisha deserves better - a more active Tourism Department can work wonders for the Soul of Incredible India as Odisha has everything to cater to anyone & everyone's interests- nature, wildlife, beaches, art, architecture, cuisine, textiles... everything... & the same points are true for our India too...India is a must-visit destination.
