Odisha and Odias across the globe are celebrating the state’s 85th Foundation Day today. Utkal Divas is celebrated on April 1 every year to remember the formation of Odisha after years of struggle to be recognized as an independent state. On this day, the entire state tunes into a festivity mood with public cultural programs and indulging in Odia cuisine and delicacies.
