There is a deliberate attempt by the Government of Odisha to suppress the Kosli language and culture, alleged Kosal Kranti Dal (KKD) working president Baidyanath Mishra at a Press conference here on Wednesday.
He said teachers and para-teachers are being recruited to appease the minor ethic groups, including Bengali and Telugu, in the State whereas Kosli spoken by almost one and a half crore people is neither given official status nor is any step being taken for its growth due to a high degree of inferiority complex on the Government’s part.
Mishra said thousand of books in Kosli using Odia script have been published in different branches of Kosli literature, but the Government does not have any affirmative stance for promoting the rich literature. This “step-motherly attitude” towards Kosli, coupled with acute regional imbalance and other parochial considerations, has led to discontentment among the people concerned and a strong opinion to split the State.
“The recent activities of the Government and some NGOs have posed a threat to Kosli language and culture,” he alleged and called upon the people of ‘Kosalanchal’ to remain alert. The strategy of “Utkalisation of the Kosal areas” is a calculated one, but the Government has not been successful in the past nor would it be successful in future because of its ill motive as negative action would only bring negative result, he remarked.
Mishra was launching Kosli No-1, a music album brought out by Karan Raj and his young team. Congratulating all those involved in the project, he advised them to adopt the twin strategy of promotion and safeguard for their language and culture.
Editor of Paschimanchala Surama Mishra was the guest of honour on the occasion. Sagar Singh Manki, Ram Chandra Amat, Jai Singh Singh and Hrudanand Behera were among others present.
Following report is from the Samaj (online edition):
Rourkela, May 3 (PTI) Two decades after ‘Bhuka’ (Hunger), the second film in the Sambalpuri language ‘Ulugulan’ (revolution), is ready to release.
The 1989 ‘Bhuka’ (hunger) produced by Sabyasachi Mohapatra was the first Sambalpuri language film from the Orissa state to get an International Jury Award at the Gijon International Film Festival.
The new film, directed by Mahmood Hussain and produced by Purnabasi Sahu, is set in the first half of the 18th century and depicts the tyrannical rule of the Nagpur rulers.
The film revolves around Trupti Panda, who uses her ornaments to kill the governor sent by the Nagpur rulers after he makes advances to her.
“We have recreated the 18th century setting and have used fresh faces for our venture,” the producer said. “We will have to see how the audience receives the film.”
The film has been produced by Maa Mangala Movies.
