I have been living in Bhubaneswar for the past four years and have become accustomed to the different places it has to offer. Recently, it came to my knowledge that the city council is planning to shut down the house of Raja Vasudevan. Raja Vasudevan was one of the pioneers who helped in the making of the history of Bhubaneswar.
I have visited the place often and agree that the building requires repairs urgently. However, shutting down the building will have more negative impact than positive. There are many people who look up to the place and it can even act as a tourist spot. If the city council collects Rs.10 from the entire city, we are more likely to have around 10 lakh from the city and the rest can be afforded by the council.
Once the repairs are done, the building can be used as the tourist spot and be a profitable site. Although it sounds a distant plan, this will surely help is restoring the building and in turn the history of Bhubaneswar.
