UTKALA DIWAS
APRIL 1, 1996

CHAKRA

Namaskar,

Utkala Diwas is a day of great pride for all Oriyas. It's also a day of reflection, when each of us should stop for a moment and look back at our great history, and let our hearts swell in pride for being an Oriya and an Indian.

On this great occasion, we have a powerful literary piece from Arati Nanda, a proud Oriya, from Austria. When I read this poem I was amazed at its simplicity. Yet it was so very powerful. It touches your heart and inspires you. Hope it has the same effect on all of you as it had on me. On behalf of all the members of ORNET, I would like to thank the author for this wonderful piece of poetry. On the occasion of Utkala Diwas, I take this opportunity to wish all the Oriyas around the world the very best. Hope each of us can achieve all their goals in life and in the process do whatever little they can for the motherland, which would make her very proud to have given birth to such deserving children. Thank you.

Regards,

JAAGA RE UTKALEEYA



Kalaa ra utkarsha he Utkala
Bandu charana tora aambhe utkaleeya. (1)

Swatantra dibase aaji
Mane pade tora keerti raaji
Swaabhimaanee Odiaa ra rakta teji
Kari jiba kichhi kaama beera saaji. (2)

Sabu thaai daridra aame re kahinki?
Saadhaba ra dhana bidyaa ra maana lupta kaahinki hoichhi?
Sateki - aama paakhe E-Ka-Taa ra abhaaba rahichhi. (3)

Aama ateeta kadaapi nuhen durbala
Aama bartamaana tathaapi sabala
Bhabishyata pain dei jiba kichhi kichhi deya. (4)

Bartamaana majjaa pare bhabishyata abasthita
Mana ra siment dei jodidebaa I-taa ra parasta
Dharamaa ra swaartha dele Konaarka heba sushobhita. (5)

Mun nuhen Katakee, mun nuhen sambalapuree
Nuhen mun Ganjaamee abaa nuhen Baaleshwaree
E-ka bhaashee santaana aame Utkala jananee aamari. (6)

Kalaa ra utkarsha deba aama parichaya
Bishwa prati kone thaai aambhe utkaleeya. (7)
