Biswal, Shyamamani to get NALCO GKM Award

 The ‘NALCO Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra Award 2017’ will be presented to two eminent personalities Guru Dhruba Charan Biswal in the field of Dance and Shyamamani Devi in the field of Music.

Srjan sources said, the ‘NALCO Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra Yuva Pratibha Samman 2017’ will be presented to Lingaraj Pradhan(Bhubaneswar) and Smt. Namrata Mehta (Mumbai) for Odissi dance, Jyotsna Jagannathan (Bangalore) for Bharatanatyam and Jateen Kumar Sahoo (Mumbai) for Odissi music.

Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra is being organised by Srjan. After Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra’s demise in 2004, the event has assumed special meaning for all of us-his students and fans worldwide. The OMC Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra Award Festival ceremony is a premium festival not only of Odisha, but also highly appreciated in various recognised cultural centres of India.

Year after year our audiences have had an unparallel strength of viewership with a large sprinkling of foreign tourists. This year’s festival is scheduled to be held from 5th to 9th September 2017 at Rabindra Mandap, Bhubaneswar. Starting with a single-day festival in 1995, the award festival has now grown to a five-day celebration of scintillating performances featuring four classical music and as many classical dance performances. The aim here is to give the Odisha audience exposure to classical fare of the highest level.

NALCO Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra Award has been presented on an annual basis in the field of Dance, Music, Theatre and Cinema to exceptional individual with a cash prize of Rs 1,00,000 (each) and a citation. Two such awards are presented each year. Further NALCO Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra Yuva Pratibha Samman will be presented with a cash prize of Rs 25,000 each to four meritorious young artistes in the area of classical dances and Odissi music for their outstanding continuous performance.


Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
