Called Suryapur in the past, this city in Gujarat finds a mention in the Mahabharat – and has some serious history. Diamond city (80 percent of India’s polishing takes place here). Textile city and the infamous plague in the 1990s and subsequent transformation. My favourite subject in school was history. Still is. Strange middle class pressures to then go for a B.Tech and MBA as degrees.

tweeted Sona Mohapatra, who has sung songs like “Bedardi raja“, “Jiya lage na” and “Ambarsariya“, posted Friday. Sona Mohapatra is a graduate in engineering.
