Last evening while watching watching Kavita Dwibedy’s solo Odissi, I was looking around. What made me proud that this classical dance surely will prosper with the patronage of so many ‘so-called elite people’. At the same time I was hearing Kuna Tripathy saying the hall would have become crowd of there were adult women wearing small clothes. Are we not restricting masses to consider the dance form religious so they only pay a visit rarely?

Once a Buddhist stupa, Rajarani temple gets its name from Rajarania stone that was used for building this marvel. This is one of the surviving Kalingan deula from the gore of vermillion! (at Rajarani Temple)

Kalinga script on copper-plate manuscript, 7th century, Ganjam, Odisha
ଗଞ୍ଜାମର ପାରଳାଖେମୁଣ୍ଡିରୁ ମିଳିଥିବା ୭ମ ଶତାବ୍ଦୀର ତମ୍ବାଫଳକରେ କଳିଙ୍ଗ ଲିପି ।
7th century copper-plate manuscript from Paralakhemundi, Ganjam district of Odisha. This is one of the earliest manuscripts that very much explains why the descendant scripts of Kalinga script (Odia and Telugu) are circular. (at State Museum ODISHA)

Ship in the bottle at Greenwich:
This is the place where childhood fantasies come to life. The place offers lonely escape from the turmoil of London and breathe some fresh oxygen. (at National Maritime Museum)

One of the finest Kalinga architecture with a Torana (entrance) that is not rare in other temples in Odisha. For its marvel, this 970 AD temple is also known as the gem of Odisha. (at Mukteswar Temple)

Ghantapatua (ଘଣ୍ଟପାଟୁଆ): We rock even at the airport!
Ghantapatua performers walk wearing long wooden legs during Pana Sankranti, the Odia new year celebration. It feels really great to see Bihu Patnaik International airport choosing to represent these true Odishan cultural identities. (at Biju Patnaik International Airport)
