Bande Utkala Janani

Odisha’s Got Talent

“Utkarsha kala ra desha… Utkala” – Country of excellent arts… Utkala (the old name of Odisha/Orissa). Odisha is full of excellent arts. Let it be beautiful status and temples (Sun temple of Konark, Shri Jagannath temple, Puri are few names from the pool), Tarakashi (Filigrees made from silver wires) of Cuttack, Chadua (Applique works) of Pipili. I named few arts and handicrafts here, but there are many, I will discuss them in detail later. Dance art of Odishi is also world famous. In addition to all these arts, the sand art done by few talented youth on the Puri beach is also caught the eye of world in recent years.
