#KhatiJamiba is a community based social organization that has been organizing various activities on social media as well as on field . The events and activities conducted by them are focused around culture, history, personalities and occasions that Odisha identifies with.
The ongoing pandemic due to COVID 19 has restricted our movements, but in a way has also made it obligatory for people to depend on technology for being able to seek normalcy, in unconventional ways. Recently, the team of Khati Jamiba was able to achieve this by organizing a unique event for remembrance of the legendary Khoka Bhai, who the world also knows by the name Akhyaya Mohanty. The event was a great success and garnered applauds from Odia’s throughout the globe. And within a fortnight, the team is now ready with another global online event titled “Odisha Ra Shakti Gatha”.
Scheduled to be conducted on Maha Ashtami October 24, 2020, “Odisha Ra Shakti Gatha” will be giving a virtual tour of Odisha to the audience, in and out of the state. There are several traditions that have not yet been explored by many people but have been kept alive in the remotest areas of the state. The exclusivity of these unique traditions can be estimated by the fact that, as of now there are hardly any resources available online. Speakers associated with these extraordinary events have gladly agreed to let the world know of our rich and rare traditions. The festive season of Durga Puja is an apt occasion to tell the Gatha, the story of the divinity of Shakti, of Maa Durga who is the source of Shakti.
Along with the virtual trip of the Shakti worship and the Durga Puja celebrations of the state, the event also intends to showcase the hidden talents of Odisha and the Odia diaspora through various art forms like sand animation, dance and stuti recitation etc. There are other surprises for the audience which will be revealed at the event. The event can be accessed via a zoom link that will be shared by the #KhatiJamiba team on major social media platforms.
