Re: Travel alone in Orissa
Assuming by 'natives' you mean tribals?
As I understand it a lot of the tribal regions in Orissa are off limits to outsiders, including Indian citizens, without prior arrangement.
This can mean government permit as well as permission or invite from a local.
I would suggest you try and contact a local fixer with a genuine reason to visit rather than just wanting to have tea with the natives!
Of course, you could go on a contrived organised tour, but I expect these are nothing short of being human zoos (though I'm sure there are some genuine, well-organised and beneficial tours too - just keep up the research!)
