Jatra

Form Balram Das to Baisnab Pani, the Oriya Jatra has not only kept up a rich tradtion but has also enlivened the Oriya mass with the cultural nourishment it required, in spite of the heavy inflows. The production style in Jatra is absolutely simple with the acting area in the center with spectators all around it. In the beginning of the Jatra the instrumentalists start playing orchestra.

They paly on harmonium, clarionist, bugle, mrudnga, jhanja, dubi,tabla,dholki etc, at a time. Then Gotipuas dance and sing. At last the real Jatra/play begins. Jatra adds to the festivity, beauty and joy of village life. It is also the best medium of mass education. It popularizes age-old literature, disseminates education and culture among the mass.
