It was well into the northeast monsoon. A cyclone was forecast to hit the Orissa coast the next day, I chalked up a scenic evacuation plan. We would leave Puri at 9 am and make the 3 hour bus ride to Satpada at the mouth of the Chilka lake by the Bay of Bengal. We would then hop on the daily ferry at noon and ride across the Chilka lake for four hours to a fishing hamlet called Balugaon. On the way we would be able to sight migratory birds which fly in from Siberia during the winters.
