Prof. Dr. Jagannath Kuanr

Abstract :

The folk culture of Odisha has been enriched a lot by several folk art traditions. Pala is one of the unique traditions of Odisha’s folk art and culture. Due to its presentation style Pala is still obtained a special position in Odishan folk dance and music. Though several research scholars of Odia literature have studied and analyzed the various angles of Odia poetry, drama, folksongs and folk literature, and have written their well-thought views and analysis but the ‘Pala’ culture of Odisha has not caught the attention of anyone. The history of its origin is yet to be unfolded. In case one fails to find out evidential facts regarding the origin and development, a country’s culture then on the basis of several series of events surrounded to that notion one can finally reach a conclusion. Pala performances also inspire people to have inclination towards God and religion.
