Artifacts from Odisha at the British museum surprisingly are named as artifacts from eastern India and Deccan - it still helps as Kalinga kingdom was spread from Ganga to Godavari river. Modern day geography of course divides these places but they were one for long time. (at British Museum)

ନିଜ ଚିଠି ପଛେ ନିଜ ପାଖକୁ ଆସୁ, ହେଲେ ଚିଠି ପାଇବାର ସେ ଆକୁଳତା ଆଉ କେଉଁଠି କାହିଁ?

କଡାଇରେ ସୁଜି ମଣ୍ଡା (ସୁଜି କାକରା)
Suji kakara (also known as Suji manda in the northern part of Odisha) is a sweet delight from Odisha. Sooji/Rava dumplings stuffed with grated coconut in thick sugar syrup are deep fried in vegetable oil. This, probably is the simplest among other sweet delicacies from the east.

ଆଜି ପୂରା ଦମରେ ଚାଲିଛି ବାଘ-ଛେଳି ଖେଳ!
Bagha-Cheli (Tiger and goat): a popular game from Odisha (possibly played in other eastern Indian states also) is in the verge of extinction - the new generation ko longer have any time and interest playing this. Interestingly, the tiger cannot kill the goat if there is no free room to jump. It is more coordinated than even the eco-system.
