Malkangiri: Odia poem ‘Tuma Pari Chhota Pila Tie…,’ a source of inspiration for many children in Odisha during their school days, have imparted such teachings which may have been forgotten by many but not by a lecturer of Balimela College in Malkangiri.

While the poem based on Utkala Gouraba Madhusudan Das depicted how he as a school kid had repaired a road after slipping into a mud pool, Balimela College's Political Science lecturer Purusottam Samarth has set another example by cleaning the drains in Balimela Notified Area Committee (NAC) single-handedly.

Purusottam is lauded for his efforts after a video of the act went viral. He has become an inspiration for the youths by performing the task of cleaning drains which is the responsibility of the NAC authorities.
