    Naveen’s great father and SON OF THE SOIL Sri Biju Patnaik was cherishing of a very wealthy, historic, heroic, prosperous and scenic ODISHA- so called KALINGA or UTKAL. He fulfilled the necessity by KALINGA AIR- later converted into an Airport by his name. Still he was dubbed in oblivion for turning it into an International one- which took shape in his son’s regime due to his whole-hearted efforts. Union Govt, like extension of services of existing train services, can think of a better innovative approach to extend all international flights from/to Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad to/from BHUBANESWAR TO FURTHER WIDEN THE SCOPE OF MORE TOURISM AND CULTURAL HERITAGE OF THE STATE,
