Following is a report from The Pioneer:

Ours is a multi-lingual and multi-cultural society. You are proving both multi-lingual and multi-cultural by organising such a unique theatre festival. It is a great achievement which needs to be appreciated.”This was observed by Orissa Governor MC Bhandare while speaking to mediapersons for few minutes after addressing people at the five-day-long theatre extravaganza Mathkhai Mahotsav on Wednesday evening.

There should be combined efforts to revive the theatre tradition. Unless there is partnership and collaboration between the State Government and private sectors, and of course people, we cannot have all-round development, he further said .

Earlier addressing the people he called upon the corporate sector to come forward to promote, encourage and sponsor local theatre in order to keep alive the rich tradition and culture of Balangir. Overwhelmed by the warm response of people, he remarked that the gathering was certainly huge like previous years.

Renowned surgery specialist Dinger Meher and social worker Bisweshwarlal Agrawal were felicitated by the Governor. Among others district collector Aswasthy S and former Minister Narasingha Mishra also addressed the gathering.
