Bhubaneswar/Sharjah: Its Raja time in Odisha and the swing, pitha, and the paan in presence of family members evoke feelings that emotionally tug every odia’s heart.

Each and every Odia irrespective of where they are would never want to miss such an occasion even though Covid-19 pandemic has taken some sheen out of this most important agrarian festival of Odisha. The nostalgia of the festival must be captivating the minds of as many as 215 prabasi Odias in UAE as they are set to return to Odisha tomorrow after remaining stranded for months amid the COVID-19 shutdown. And to make their homecoming even more special, they are being flown back by none other than a lady pilot from their own state.
