The art forms of Odisha !

All images have been “borrowed” from Odisha Tourism web page on FB with the purpose of showcasing Odishan rich tradition of arts and culture and food. The next blog will be on popular delicacy from Odisha, the ancient kingdom in the eastern sea coast of India, a region where I was born in 1978. With mist and tears in my eyes I have carried this love for 36 years !

Odisha tourism on FB: it seems the government of Odisha bought over the earlier Odisha tourism page: so we have simply mentioned the page, the page’s earlier FB link is broken.
