Homage to Orissa (Editorial)

Title:Homage to Orissa (Editorial)
Author:Anand, Mulk Raj
Enumeration:Vol. 8 Issue no. 4; September 1955, p. 2-4
Abstract:Despite the strain of unity in India's fundamental tradition, climatic and social factors provide a richly unique turn to the same common doctrine. Thus, the early Jaina and Buddhist art around Bhubaneswar has a different form to that on the fringes of the Deccan. Again, the ruins of Sisupalgarh and Keonjargarh show a different sense of carving and colour from Ajanta. A programme of self-awareness of one's own inheritance can lead to creative works -- not only in artistic self-expression but also in the construction of present-day necessities such as dams, roads, even cities.
