Utkal Divas 2022: Tribute to makers of modern Odisha

Bhubaneswar, : Utkal Divas is celebrated on April 1 every year with much pomp and show. Utkal Divas is celebrated to remember the historical event in 1936 when Odisha became a separate province from Bengal and Bihar.

Odisha was the first state to be formed on the basis of a separate linguistic identity.

The formation of Odisha would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of Utkala Gourab Madhusudan Das, Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das, Maharaja Shri Krushna Chandra Gajapati, Maharaja Shri Ram Chandra Bhanj deo, Fakir Mohan Senapati, Gangadhar Meher, Radhanatha Ray and many others.

The makers of modern Odisha worked tirelessly for the formation of a separate state. Utkal Sammilani played a pivotal role in uniting the state.

Sir John Hubbak was the first governor of the state.

 

Once India got its Independence, Orissa became a constituent state in the Union of India in 1950.

The state was originally called Orissa. The state’s name was changed from Orissa to Odisha on 24 March, 2011, after Rajya Sabha, the upper house of Parliament, gave its nod to the Orissa (Alteration of Name) Bill, 2010 and the Constitution (113th Amendment) Bill. The Lok Sabha, the lower house, had passed the bill and the amendment to change the name of the state from Orissa to Odisha, and that of its language from Oriya to Odia, on November 9, 2010.
