Bhubaneswar: “We must propagate our indigenous medicinal ways because plant products have no or negligible side effects,” said Jagdish Atrie, an Epidemiologist with Department of Health, Western Australian who was impressed with the concept and theme of medicinal plant garden (Ekamra Van) in Odisha Capital.
With his roots here in Old Town, Jagdish was overwhelmed for having visited the Monks, Caves and Kings heritage walk at Udaygiri and joined the Ekamra Walks in Old Town this morning, with his son Sameer.
Sameer Atrie is a student of Curtin University and is currently majoring in Geology and Finance. Here for surveying various mining sites in Odisha, he was equally joyous at seeing the rich heritage of the state.
Consultants from various fields, and students of a college here, also showed up at the Ekamra Walks in the morning today.
Neha, a native of Uttrakhand said exploring the city through walks has given her a different perspective of the city and the ancient monumental wealth scattered across the city.
