Following is a report from The Pioneer:

Addressing the concluding day of Kalahandi Utsav Ghumura-2010, chief guest MP Bhakta Charan Das said that there is urgent need to revive art and culture which is gradually disappearing. He also urged to establish a tribal tourism centre in the district and reiterated to save the glorious tradition of Indian music, dance and drama through united efforts.

Not only local artistes but also artistes from other districts of the State as well as from Chhattisgarh and Assam performed cultural programmes amid thousands of spectators during the four-day festival. Former Chief Minister Giridhar Gamang also performed instrumental music on tribal instruments such as Changu and Kansari on the stage.

Many dignitaries were felicitated with Kalahandi Baraputra Award on the occasion. Bharat Bhusan Deo, Prabhash Chandra Mishra, Ratnakar Bhoi, Jayanta Behera, Gajanana Naik and Satya Narayan Rajput received the prestigious award in various fields from the guest of honour. A souvenir named ‘Kalajharan’ was also released on the occasion. School and college toppers also received Gyanashree Award instituted by Vendanta Aluminium Limited (VAL).

A seminar on the topic, ‘Together we can develop Kalahandi’ was also organised on Sunday morning at Bhawanipatna Town Hall.
