Bhubaneswar, June 24, 2014:
The Ekamra Walks Old Town Circuit this morning also attracted many visitors including three students from the capital city of Togo Lome, in Africa. All the three are studying Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) in India.
Godson Kalipe, who joined the Old Town heritage walks some months ago is studying CSE at city-based KIIT University. His other friends Abdel Aziz and Rodolphe came visiting him and all three decided to join the Ekamra Walks.
“During my last visit to Ekamra Walks, I found that it is a nice platform to showcase the traditions, temple building style and technique and knowing its culture from a close quarter. I suggested my friends and they agreed immediately. They are also studying CSE at APG Shimla University,’’ said Godson.
Seema Misra came from Bangalore to join the walk with her professor aunt, Susmita Pani, who taught English Literature at Ravenshaw University.
Seema, a self-taught artist and blogger, based in the IT hub of India not only writes her blog, but also does the sketching for her article herself to ornament them and make them attractive. “I had been to the city on many occasions, but never joined the Ekamra Walks. It was very interesting, entertaining and educative,’’ she commented.
