Raipur to Sambalpur is a scenic ride with villages dotted amid endless tract of paddy fields and occasional rivers. Enroute I crossed Mahanadi which is one of the most important rivers of the country and wide enough to deceive your sight.
October sky was twinkling with full moon, taking the lead role and throwing mild light on otherwise darker road to Manali. As sun went down, we made to Mandi and still were way behind to our schedule. It was a crazy day of meticulously driving till Ambala on National Highway one where we had been penalized in the past for over speeding.
