Cyclist near Vedvyas: Cycle is the most preferred by Rourkela people to commute. Reasons being cheap, flat roads and Poverty among users. Even working-women on daily wages prefers to ride the bicycles.

Repair it quickly: As cycles are commonly used, no doubt many repair shops available and starts the day early morning.

I am insured : Auto rickshaw is another preferred transport. Share rickshaws run from morning till nine in the evening on ring road. One rickshaw can hold up to eight passengers. Luggage is normally kept in a separate luggage compartment behind seating place. To reach  other parts of the city, it needs to be 'reserved' and thus costs more. Rickshaw drivers do not cheat here.  Most of them fairly educated, knows English even.

Bridge on the Koel river : Railway bridge running parallel to road. On the backdrop its 'Vedvyas'

Private buses, called 'Sampark' buses, were introduced to ease the transportation. Runs in the most of the parts of city till 7 PM. Very cheap.

Only rich prefers the bike: As cycle is the best vehicle, People who really need the bike prefers it. On the compound wall, pictures related to epics like Ramayan and Mahabharat are painted to add the beauty. 
Ring road is the spine of the city and carries most of the traffic. It is well maintained, smooth, wide with two separate lanes for up and down traffic.

Today 'NO' work : People in Odisha are poor but innocent at heart. Still in this part some drive cycle-rickshaw to earn the bread and butter. Mostly these rickshaws are used to transport  commodities in small volumes.

Start of the day with wait !
