Those from Odisha and live in Bengaluru are now having a reason to be happy as CM Naveen Patnaik has decided to establish a Odisha Bhawan in the southern metropolitan city of Bengaluru. With the budget of Rs 3.86 crore, it may start functioning from this year.
Nearly 5Lakh ODIA’s are now working in Bengaluru and mostly in the IT sector & hospitality industries. While metro City like Mumbai is already having Odisha Bhawan, in Chennai construction of Odisha Bhavan has reached a final stage. Odisha govt. requested for prime locality in North Bengaluru around Yelahanka or Hebbal, so that an appropriate facility can be created by the Odisha Govt.
Now you must be thinking what is the function of “Odisha Bhawan” in Bengaluru and other metro cities!
Well! the first thing is accommodation & also the meeting point for all the Odia people, like other bhawans it will also become a nerve centre for Odisha’s art, craft, culture and cuisine. And if these things are not enough, then you’ll happy to know that all the Odia foods you miss there at Bengaluru will also be available at upcoming Odisha Bhawan. From Snacks to Dinner from ‘Bandha Kobi‘ To ‘Badhi Chura‘.
Like we always say “Total #Odiappa”, isn’t it?
