Train tickets from Kolkata to Balasore and from Balasore to Cuttack are booked. Have booked the Otdc Panthanivas at chandipur sea beach.
Booked Indigo flight from Bhubaneswar to Kolkata just now.

Sorry, I don't have any. I am a big follower of Saint Ram Rahim Singh Insan and he does not allow us to keep one

The lingas are under the stream of water? Risky for elderly people.

Read http://www.indiamike.com/india/west-...5/#post2053855 and watch the news frequently. My personal opinion would be not rely on the local drivers and hotels tell, they might not want to let go of money.

But, he has to cancel the govt cottage at least 30 days prior for refund (he needs to decide within next 2 days)

Yes, it is risky for elderly people. Current is strong and the lingas at least 2 feet under stream in the month of December.

I belong to the "elderly" category (I'm 75+). I had to lie on the rock upside down; and put my hand in the stream & then followed by upper half of my body to touch these "lingas". Yet, I could do it. Difficult? Yes. Impossible? No.
