Cuttack District Tennis Association of which I have been functioning as the Honorary Secretary for past one decade resurrected itself in 2013 with a state of the art tennis complex.

Within three years the Association has been able to fulfill its mission to a large extent in promoting the game of tennis among the younger generation who were deprived of the game due to lack of facilities.

Now, about 50 to 60 boys and girls are being coached at this facility round the year. We organised the ranking tournament among the students last week. It is heartening to see the enthusiasm for the game in the silver city

Spoke at the National Police Academy, Hyderabad in a Seminar on "Community Policing as Core Policing Strategy" on 16 May.
My argument was based on the premises that policing & community policing are synonymous in their philosophy. Because both aim at maintaining order in the society, which becomes easier with willing cooperation of the members of the public.

A new batch of officers from Odisha Police Service (OPS) joins the State Police Academy, Bhubaneswar for their training. The batch strength is 13 and it was after 40 long years that Odisha Police got direct recruit OPS Officers. We hope that with their inclusion, the Odisha Police will benefit from their youth and fresh blood at the middle level supervisory officers.

I took few classes of the Officer Trainees at the Academy.
