Five buses ply on new route
SANDIP BAL

Bhubaneswar, July 24: The city buses today rolled on a new route between Gada Gopinath Prasad (GGP) colony at Mancheswar and May Fair Square at Jayadev Vihar. Five buses will ply on the route.

Mayor Anant Narayan Jena flagged off the service at the GGP colony. The buses would ply via Laxmi Sagar, Big Bazar, Rajmahal, Governor’s house, Unit VIII DAV school, CRP and Ekamra Kanan Square.

The mayor said the people had been demanding the service on this route. “After several verifications, the route was decided and it would serve larger interest of the citizens. This particular route was not included by previous routes,” said Jena, chairman of Bhubaneswar Puri Transport Services Limited (BPTSL), that manages the bus service.

Today, the buses were seen mostly occupied. Rabi Narayan Senapati, a resident of GGP colony and a state government employee, said there were no bus from his locality to his office near AG Square. “Earlier, I had to either change buses at different squares or take autorickshaw to cover the remaining distance. Now, I can reach office by one bus,” said Senapati.

Similarly, Sushant Pradhan, a resident of Ekamra villa, said he today got a direct bus from his area to the Unit I market. “Earlier, I had to depend on autorickshaws to go for a hangout or shopping. Now, we got one bus to take us directly to the city centre,” said Pradhan.

This is the eleventh route on which the buses had been plying since the city bus service started on October 10 last year. Sudhanshu Jena, chief executive officer (CEO) of the Dream Team Sahara, said the five buses that started plying through this route would cover nearly 35km in one go. All buses are small. “There have been marked 26 bus stops where people can board the bus,” said Jena.

The Sahara officers said till date, 84 out of the 125 buses had been plying on all the eleven routes. The bus service was initially aimed to be run in Bhubaneswar and Puri. Later, Cuttack was added to the plan with public demand and the high court directive. At present, the city buses are plying to Cuttack on two routes. Even Puri got its share eight months after the service had started.

Jena said the buses would run on three other routes in the city, including Bhubaneswar to Jatani via Sundarapada, Master Canteen to Chandaka via Khandagiri and Lumbini Vihar to Kalpana via Rasulgarh.

However, the officers said the government had not yet provided the infrastructure to the operators. The mayor said the process was on. “It will be handed over to the operator very soon,” he said.

New pleasure turf to while away balmy evenings

BHUBANESWAR: Jog down an exclusive corridor, hop on to a pedal boat floating on a pristine lake to cool off and wrap up with a bite at the food court. If things go as planned, the state capital will soon boast a new recreation hub for city denizens to spend their leisure hours in style.

The Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) has identified a sprawling 22 acre land to create a lake, a jogging corridor, a food court and a park near the crematorium at Satyanagar, facing the Janpath. The proposed lake will originate near Nicco Park Square on Rajpath and wind up to the crematorium on Janpath. A natural drain, which is being renovated, runs parallel to the proposed lake site.

"There will be paddle boating facility in the proposed lake. BDA will also create a walking corridor, park and food court beside the lake. It will be a perfect recreation hub for people," BDA vice-chairman Deoranjan Kumar Singh told TOI.

The lake proposal was approved by chief minister Naveen Patnaik during a recent review meeting of various proposed development projects in the city, sources said. BDA will soon entrust a consultancy agency to draw up a plan report for the project. "We will float a tender and rope in consultancy to chalk out a master plan of the project," Singh said. The cost of the proposed project would be chalked out soon, he said.

The propose recreation hub site, however, has been encroached upon by slum dwellers for some time now. "The government will certainly look into the rehabilitation part of the slum dwellers. They will be shifted elsewhere," Singh claimed.

Meanwhile, citizens have been training their guns at the government for doing little to revive the lake in BDA City Centre, an amusement hub jointly owned by the BDA and a private company. Though paddle boating facility was rolled out in the lake in 1998, the project collapsed with the lake becoming dry and shrinking in 2003 due to poor maintenance.

"Instead of reviving the lake, the government allowed a private party to arrange marriage parties inside the BDA City Center. Neither the BDA nor the private party thought of giving a fresh lease of life to the dead lake," said Amiya Panigrahi, a local resident.

Nearly 36 paddle boats were introduced in the lake then, now lying idle near a pond at BDA City Center. "Since the lake is no more functional, we are using some of the boats in the small pond," said a functionary at the recreation center.

BDA vice-chairman Singh said, though, the government is working for the revival of the BDA City Center lake.

Protection of heritage structures

Urban renewal of ancient India
ISHER JUDGE AHLUWALIA
Posted: Wednesday, Jul 27, 2011 at 2313 hrs IST

: We Indians like to think we are proud of our spiritual, cultural and architectural heritage. But in the hurly burly of haphazard development of our cities, we do little to preserve our heritage, let alone build on it. Bhubaneswar, the capital city of Orissa, shows how we can do this.
Bhubaneswar is the second “planned” city of independent India after Chandigarh. Its total area of 135 sq km includes the 25 sq km or so of the Old Town that dates back more than a 1,000 years, with glorious temple structures that had dotted the area then, many of which are there today as well.

Until 2007, the Old Town of Bhubaneswar was no different from any of the other heritage cities of India, which are visited in hordes by pilgrims and tourists and which typically have congested roads, crowded market places, polluted water bodies for want of sewerage and adequate storm water drains, and a profusion of undergrowth and mounds of solid waste in and around the historic structures. The shrines and temples are typically hidden behind the shoddy and unplanned construction of buildings that have come up over the years with little regard for design standards or harmony between the old and the new.

The Old Town Revitalisation Project of Bhubaneswar is changing all this and already making a difference. The project includes architectural restoration, environmental clean-up and city planning to open up the old temples, for easier access and better appreciation of their splendour. It also revitalises the living culture of the Old Town, say by way of a medicinal plants garden on the west bank of Bindu Sagar and the Lingaraj Haat.

Bindu Sagar, a sacred water body that finds mention in the “puranas” and other ancient texts is a stone’s throw from the Lingaraj temple. It is said that when Bindu Sagar was formed, all the river goddesses were invited to bless it by pouring into it some drops of water from their rivers. This is also where Parvati is supposed to have herded cows and Shiva is supposed to have meditated under a huge mango tree, as large as a forest.

As recently as 2008, Bindu Sagar was neither visually nor physically connected to the Lingaraj temple (except from some view points along the main road), thanks to all the man-made obstructions. Of course, having lost its past glory and beauty, it was not much of a sight to want to look at. Its periphery was in an advanced state of disrepair, with retaining walls that were crumbling. Its waters were sullied by leaking sewage, open defecation, ritual offerings by hundreds of pilgrims, and chemicals from washing clothes.

Today, thanks to the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), the first project to have been taken up under the Old Town Revitalisation Project was the Bindu Sagar Periphery Development project that includes a medicinal plant garden called Ekamravan on the west bank of Bindu Sagar. The project is being implemented by the Forest Department under the guidance of A HeritageLab, a heritage conservation firm . It provided design inputs, and training and direction to the stoneworkers.

The project has a strong component of capacity-building, following the successful experiment of training in lime plaster for local craftsmen in Raghurajpur in a pilot project. The Bindu Sagar periphery wall is being built by local sculptors who are being trained in the art of stone carving by the accomplished skilled craftsmen of the area. “This not only creates a resource for the future conservation of heritage but it also visibly and positively impacts the lives of the rural craftsmen and their children”, said Anupam Shah of A Heritage, proudly.

Deriving inspiration from Ekamravan, which has been described in ancient texts as the Rasalila Kshetra of Lord Shiva and Parvati, the garden has three impressive platforms (Pindis) made out of laterite and sand stone, for Shiva, Parvati and their son Ganesha, with a mango tree, an amla tree and a bel tree at the centre of each platform, respectively. The garden has more than 200 species of medicinal plants. The Ekamravan Medicinal Plant Garden Society maintains the garden, charging a nominal fee for entry. It also sells medicinal plant saplings at its nursery.

The periphery wall, made of finely chiselled laterite with intermittent carvings, also adds to the heritage ambience as it protects Bindu Sagar from the old habits of misuse. Sewerage and waste water from homes in the surrounding areas are being diverted away, washing of clothes and dishes in the lake is being dissuaded with alternative provisions made for such washing, and public toilets have been provided to check open defecation. However, the challenge of finding a sustainable solution to cleaning the waters of Bindu Sagar remains. A water purification project is being planned, and bringing freshwater in and the opening of an outlet are also in the offing.

With one-third of the periphery wall completed by the Forest Department, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has swung into action by taking up the remaining part of the wall. There is enough evidence of an environment transformed. The garden is being used by morning walkers and those seeking peace and quiet with an open view of the grand old temples.

To open up the visual and pedestrian connections between the Lingaraj Temple and Bindu Sagar, I saw a pathway being opened up that passes between the Shankaranand Matha and the Gopalateertha Matha. Along the way, ritual platforms of Lord Lingaraj are being opened out for the public. Similarly, the Markandeshwar Temple has been opened up for viewing from Bindu Sagar, after relocating a community kitchen with the consent of the local community. In the case of the Ekamreshwar temple in front of the Lingaraj, the temple committee removed one of its own buildings in order to participate in this heritage revitalisation movement.

The chaotic market area around the Lingaraj temple has also seen a major transformation in step with a larger drive by the BMC to provide vendor space for hawkers and street sellers. The Lingaraj Haat is now set up daily on a newly constructed platform right next to the Lingaraj temple in a 30,000 sq ft area. The platform is nicely harmonised with its surroundings. On this open space, vendors bring their wares and take their allotted spaces to sell vegetables, fruit, other household items and puja samagri to make their living. Built in 2011 by the Orissa Tourism Development Corporation and maintained by the Lingaraj Temple Administration, the haat sustains livelihoods of those who earlier squatted on footpaths for a living. It converts into an open clean area during the night for prayers at festival times and a place to visit more generally.

A number of government departments and the BMC have been engaged in upgrading the road infrastructure to keep pace with the revitalisation of the Old Town. Heritage restoration seems to be leading urban development in Bhubaneswar. Other heritage cities in India have a lot to learn.

Plan to set up world trade centre in Bhubaneswar

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...cle2639032.ece

The World Trade Centre Association has proposed to set up a World Trade Centre in Bhubaneswar for the promotion of international trade and investment in Odisha.

The proposal was presented at a high-level meeting here in which WTC Advisor, Mr Jayant Ghate, and his colleagues were present, official sources said today.

The WTC has 323 centres in 95 countries. It has nearly one million business associates that account for more than one-third of world trade, he said.

The WTC aims at an effective combination of infrastructure and services to promote and develop international trade in Odisha, which has a legacy of maritime international trade, Mr Ghate told reporters.

“The WTC provides services in the field of trade information, trade education, trade research, exhibition facilities, meeting and conventions, shopping arcades, temporary residential facilities and import and export activities,” the Industries Secretary, Mr T. Ramachandru, said.

The association proposes to submit a detailed project report on the proposed WTC within two to three months, the Chief Secretary, Mr B.K. Patnaik, said.

The WTC is likely to be established on the outskirts of the state capital, he added.

MindTree begins work on Bhubaneswar campus

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...cle2845292.ece

Mid-tier IT firm MindTree has started work on its 20-acre campus, ‘MindTree Kalinga', at the Chandaka Special Economic Zone in Bhubaneswar, Odisha (Orissa).

Students from various local educational institutions poured earth specially brought in from many different places in the world to the base of a Krishna Ficus tree at the proposed site, a press statement said.

“MindTree believes Odisha is the emerging hub of the east. We are looking forward to building a world-class centre here that will train and deploy some of the best minds of the eastern region. We will engage with the academic community here to create a vibrant eco-system,” Mr Subroto Bagchi, Vice-Chairman of MindTree, said in a press statement.

According to the statement, the 20-acre campus has been designed based on ancient architectural principles behind local temples by Bangalore-based architects Chandavarkar & Associates.

The campus is being built in a phase-wise manner and the first phase of 200,000 square feet will be completed in 2013.

Just trying to revive this thread. There is hardly any activity going on here. There are many world-class projects going on in BBSR but hardly anything has been posted here.
