Whether "Atithi Devo Bhava" is followed in India as well as in Odisha?Dear Members,
India and particularly Jagannathpuri Odisha has always been a favourite place for the foreign tourists to visit. Foreign Tourists like the culture here, the softness of its people and their way of behaviour towards guests.
But some culprits, evil minded people never understand the menaing of the phrase "Atithi Debo Bhava" . They are trying to cheat them, take undue advantage of their belief. They even don't hesitate to take their lives for the little bit money, foreigners posses. The rape cases with foreign tourists, loots, and even murder cases has been increased significantly. Despite of the law to protect, people are not fearing to do these kind of activities.
Recent cases in Puri of beating a foreign lady by a youngman, cheating by pandas and rape case in gujurat etc. are the proof to the above statement.
