Saga of the Barabati Stadium is an amazing inside story about the sweat and tears that have gone into the making of the first Olympic standard stadium of Odisha. It is an untold story of how the idea of a stadium was born amid political patronage but mired with political jealousies. Yet it could rise to glory, then fall into shame and rise once again to sport lovers’ delight. The author had witnessed it all from close quarters in his long association with the Barabati Stadium spanning over sixty years. He had been privy to many things kept under wraps about the making of this great stadium. In his late eighties and in failing health, and just a few months before his death he has dared to bare it all. However sweet or bitter the truth may be, he did not want the untold story to die with him.
A must for every sport lover.
