I listen to Ravindra Sangeet often and find that had instead of fighting on classical status of Odia language we spent more time for popularising our modern songs of Ninteenth and twentieth century by various artists in various tunes, we would have documented our culture more effectively .

There has been so much of debates these days on reducing height of Goddess Durga idols in Cuttack by Government due to Covid. Many scholars discussing on the matter are possibly not aware that on the request of Chowdhury of Bheda ,his friend Zamindar Binode Bihari Mukherjee brought the tradition of Durga idol to Cuttack 150 years ago from Calcutta.Height of Durga idol was 7 feet in the first year as Binod Bihari Mukherjee himself was a person of 6 feet height.Those interested to know more may read writings of late Choudhury Hemakantanka Mishra .

My young journalist friend Shantakar Chelapila Reports from Koraput :

‘There was a crowd of Cars from Saints School to DNK junction .Parents were seen waiting in these cars for their children who were writing NIIT exams in Govt.Girls High School , Koraput this afternoon .Some local children were calculating the cars and were reading so many different names of cars .It was a world of cars till 5 pm .’

I listen to Ravindra Sangeet often and find that had instead of fighting on classical status of Odia language we spent more time for popularising our modern songs of Ninteenth and twentieth century by various artists in various tunes, we would have documented our culture more effectively .

Why with so much of variety of songs we couldn’t grow in modern lyrics and songs in Odisha/ Odia like Ravindra Sangeet of Bengal ? Can we make a list of 50 outstanding lyricists of the period from Gopalkrishna Pattnayak to Devdas Chhotray for a healthy debate and discussion ?

Forget Art and Culture.Our life is in danger. Adani has now kept his eyes on Andaman and North Eastern Region forests after destroying the rain-forest in Indonesia for palm oil production.

The production of palm oil is also one of the world’s leading causes of rainforest destruction. According to an industry body, there are more than 20 million hectares of oil-palm plantations globally.

Adani Wilmers suppliers were responsible for more than 140,000 hectares of burned land between 2015 and 2018 and nearly 8000 hot spots in 2019. Its Plantation expansion has devastated some of the world’s most biologically diverse ecosystems, particularly in Borneo and Sumatra, driving species such as orangutans, tigers and elephants to the brink of extinction.

I concluded with my remark,’A Time is coming when we will die without meeting our dear friends all over the world..!’
