A very fulfilling afternoon with Gilehrio
I was on a work related trip with my colleague to Bhubaneswar and we had an extra afternoon to ourselves. We decided to explore the rich heritage of Bhubaneswar and came across the Pattachitra workshop organised by Gilehrio. None of us had a prior background in painting, yet it was the one of the most rewarding experience.

Sweta (well we could not have got a better guide) picked us up in the morning and it was roughly 90-minute drive to this village, which is famous for its heritage in arts, primarily Pattachitra. Enroute, we stopped in between for breakfast and tried some local delicacies. Sweta was very knowledgeable and friendly and shared with us wonderful insights about Odisha, it's magnificent history and great culture.

After arriving in Raghurajpur, we were welcomed into a very warm and hospitable house a local artist. We spent most part of the morning and early afternoon at the terrace working on our paintings (Pattachitra). The Masterji (our instructor at the workshop) was a true master at his art and thankfully was very patient with us as we tried our hands with the brushes and colours for the first time ;-)
It was just amazing to look at his finesse and every now and then he would teach us a trick or two to keep improving our work.

All this while we had some really good interactions as we immersed ourselves in the history and the calmness of the place. After the workshop, we were rewarded with home made lunch served in the true authentic Oriya style.

It was a perfect way to sum up our short trip to Odisha. Thanks to Sweta, Surya and Gilehrio for this wonderful concept and some great impressions of the place.
