By Nageshwar Patnaik in Bhubaneswar, April 26, 2019: They appear to look like characters from the Bollywood hit “Three Idiots”. They hail from three different parts of the state but pursue one mission leaving no stone unturned. That is to come out with innovative packages at an affordable price to make life easier.

The four youths, Birajasankar Rout from Talcher, Narottam Tandia from Jharsuguda, Panchanan Patra and Rohit Kundu from Keonjhar after successfully completing in Bachelor of Commerce in the city based Kalinga College of Commerce, joined hands together to do something innovative and extraordinary.

The package included mattress, bed sheet and pillow cover, pillow, bucket, mug, one set cloth clips, mosquito net, trunk, hand wash, washing brush each. Besides, the package provides three hangers and two water bottles.

The students have also a choice of a-la-carte. They can order the items separately as per the price tagged individually. Interestingly, the prices are inclusive of taxes and delivery charges.

Every year at least five thousand students flood Bhubaneswar for pursuing their education.
