Jagannath temple is one of the tallest monuments in the country. Astonishingly, standing at an imposing height of about 214 ft atop an elevated platform of stone measuring about 10 acres, it presents the Kalingan Architecture.

But irony is that a place which is located in the heart of sector 17 is the ?Boot Polish Varanda?. Through this place thousands of people and the visitors pass through but without much notice. In this varanda more than 35 shoe polishers are shining the shoes of the residents since last more than 40 years. My interactions with these shoe shining boys came out with interesting revelations.
