• ଓଡ଼ିଶାରେ ଦୁର୍ଗାପୂଜା


    ଯୁଗ ଯୁଗରୁ ଏହି ପବିତ୍ର ଭାରତଭୂମିରେ ନାରୀକୁ ଦେବୀ ରୂପରେ ଅଭିହିତ କରାଯାଇ ନାରୀଶକ୍ତିକୁ ପୂଜା କରାଯାଉଛି । ଦୈତ୍ୟମାନଙ୍କ ବିନାଶ ପାଇଁ ଜଗତଜନନୀ ମା ଦୁର୍ଗା ଆର୍ବିଭୁତା । ଦୈତ୍ୟ ମହିଷାଶୂରର ପ୍ରକୋପରେ ଥରହର ତ୍ରିଲୋକକୁ ବଂଚାଇବା ପାଇଁ ମାତା ପାର୍ବତ

  • A Gastronomer’s Delight

    Durga Puja, is that time of the year for which we wait with great anticipation and zest. It comes with a complete package of new clothes, festivities, pandal hopping, music, great food, enjoyment with friends and extended families, movie nights etc. Our list is endless. This year though, things are different. But does that stop us from remembering our great puja celebrations and the special bhogs that we have always relished.

    Durga Puja in Cuttack is not only about silver tableaux, huge welcome arches and illuminated gates. The delicious 'bhog' served at the pand

  • Learn to call him Mr. Akshaya Mohanty

    Charudutta Panigrahi

    Our adulation is only superficial it seems. Akshaya Mohanty is omnipresent in our lives – from WhatsApp, FB to events & all kinds of music banters, non-music khatis, everywhere across three generations. He is supposed to be the king of modern Odia music, the fountainhead of modernity and out-of-the-closet romance in Odia music. Some of us believe that he was much more than only a musician or a music maker. He made every Odia household spread their wings, break the staid middle-class coyness, and he himself

  • On JPD ( Jagannath Prasad Das )

    He stands tall, unbending in his demeanour and stature in the journey since the late forties (1949) when his first poem was published in Kumkum. So much like a scuba diver, he dives deep, is self-contained and perennially observant.

    A typical litterateur of his times in Odisha or of Odisha origin fell into two brackets – civil servant and non-civil servant. He chose not to two-time his first love, literature and quit the elite Indian administrative career, for which he prepared in the then "Oxford of the east", Allahabad University. He taught at the University too

    The first showers of rain after a really fierce summer bring unmatched solace to the soul. Even though monsoon has played hide-and-seek this year, with depressions over the Bay of Bengal drenching the state more than the real monsoon, the deep passion that Odias share for special monsoon delicacies (barsa dina ra chatpata jalakhia), has remained intact. No sooner do the clouds start growling, the entire family starts making preparations for yummy teatime snacks!
