Maraguda Mahotsav: Celebration of Rich Culture and History of South Kosal

April 16, 2012 at 2:33 am 1 comment

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:

    Really MARAGUDA is a word well sounded to listen . I am least concerned about this place.Who are local intellectuals they should try their best to preserve this place transferring it to a historic place in all manner.By getting a fund from govt. to celebrate MARAGUDA UTSSAVA calling dancers from all over odisha /india is not well versed MARAGUDA UTSAVA.We should go through deeply for its betterment.
    thanks Sanjib babu.
