Back in the year 1001 This old man with a stick in hand was the first to come up alarming the people of Cuttack to request King Markata Kesari to Save Cuttack. Time was ticking and had he not alarmed, Cuttack the commercial city of Odisha would have been under Kathajodi river basin by then. Old man Baimundi went to the king with few coins in hand and requested him to construct a stone revetment to protect Cuttack from Kathajodi floods. Southern Cuttack was protected from the fury offloads of the Kathajodi by a stone revetment, a great engineering feat of the early eleventh century.
