Choreography: Ileana Citaristi

Thematic presentation based on the saga of the great river of Orissa, cradle of Oriya culture. Although it originates in Chattisgarh, the Mahanadi is almost synonymous with Orissa, its history and geography. In this production various myths related to places which are located along its course are depicted. Like the myth of Sabari who waits for Lord Rama in the kantak bana or forest of thorns situated on the bank of the Mahanadi. Or the story of Visuavasu who worships the tribal god Nila Madhava in Kontilo, a small hill inside the river. And the story of Lord Jagannath who was carried along the river upto to Patali Cuttack to escape from the ire of Kalapada. In the past the Oriya merchant used to start their journey from Cuttack along the Mahandi to reach the faraway land of Indonesia on the full moon night of the month of Kartika.
