Absolutely correct.

Thanks Ramky. I went through your thread where you guys covered entire GQ. I would say that was innovative. BTW what's your next travel plan?

you t-logue brought back memories..panikoili-jajpur road-anandpur-ghasipur-trilochanpur...some special memories that I share with those places..the Maa Tarini Devi temple remains etched in my memory and it wud stay there forever.

I never thought that I would actually find somebody writing a T-Logue about these places.Excellent pictures and quite a drive that you had.NH5 looked in good shape till panikoili.wonder what is the condition after that.yes but eating places have to come up on NH5 especially on the Orissa part.I loved the rosogolla and sweet stalls that they have on the stretch between Bhubnswr & Cuttack,on both sides of the road.amazing sweets.They have to do something about those trucks that drive like mad after 5pm between Barbil,Keonjhar & Paradip port.Its such a nuisance.on our way back we wanted to get to NH5 @ panikoili before the trucks got onto the road but somehow couldnt and we were stuck at Jajpur for close to two hours.

btw is NH6 a good alternative to the link highway NH215 tht connects NH5 & NH6 to come back to cuttack from those regions near keonjhar considering that the truck traffic is crazy after 5pm?

NH6 was in average condition, NH215 from Panikoili to Keonjhar was in also OK condition, however there were lot of trucks on this route.

BTW which place you belong to?

Hats-off dude. Its really difficult to do stretch of 1620 kms without any nap.
Hope you left a stone on accelerator when you reached the Naidupeta highway.

Ah ok.yes 215 is ok,no complaints on the road condition,the problem is with the truck traffic after 5pm.its maddening.is there a route to reach Cuttack from Keonjhar via NH6?

well tough q to answer,nevertheless,am a keralite,been all over the place,now in hyd.we did a trip to a children's home in anandpur,thats how the familiarity with the place
