“Bande Utkala Janani” anthem played as a tribute to Odisha’s frontline warriors

The world famous Odia anthem “Bande Utkala Janani” played on the evening of May 30 as a tribute to all the Odisha’s Coronavirus frontline warriors. Chief Minister of Odisha, Mr. Naveen Patnaik at his Bhubaneswar residence played the anthem. He also urged all the citizens to join him at 5:30PM for this beautiful ceremony.

The citizens followed what the CM said and joined the tribute ceremony as per timing. Many of them shared their activity on Twitter and other social medias. Here are some beautiful visuals from the evening

The history of this beautiful patriotic poem is more than 100 years old. Kantakabi Laxmikanta Mohapatra in 1912 wrote the lyrics of Bande Utkala Janani. On 1 April, 1936 when Odisha became a state, this poem was adapted as the “State song of Odisha“. Go to the song’s Wikipedia page where you can read more about it’s wide history and values.

The contribution of all the frontline workers/warriors during this pandemic will always be remembered. Odisha has registered around 1,660 coronavirus positive cases till date. Lots of sacrifices were made by thousands of people in order to save millions of lives. Our only duty as a citizen right now is to send them greetings and love for their work.
