Maraguda Mahotsav: Celebration of Rich Culture and History of South Kosal
Earlier on Facebook I have written about this. Following is a paragraph from that:
I appreciate the MARAGUDA MAHOTSAV 2012 celebrations. But, what is this celebration all about? What is Maraguda? How many people in Nuapada-Kalahandi belt know about Maraguda civilization? What is the Odisha and Indian govt. doing to preserve the remains of Maraguda valley? Were these issues discussed during this celebration? From village to country, every region of India has its own history. Maraguda was the capital area of South Kosal kingdom. As a native of western Odisha I feel very proud about Maraguda civilization. Has anyone from Nuapada writing a book on the rich history of Kosal? Are you guys trying to convert this historical site to a tourist spot? If not please give a proposal to local MPs/MLAs. I will be glad to assist you.
The following report from Sambad talks about historical aspects of Maraguda civilization:
