Odia chair set up at Banaras Hindu University after JNU

After the Jawaharlal Nehru University, an Odia chair has been set up at the Banaras Hindu University on Wednesday. It has been named after Odia poet Kabi Samrat Upendra Bhanja.

The state government has provided Rs 5 crore for the purpose. The chair will have some research students who will take up subjects from classical and modern literature in a particular language and compare it with the literature of other languages of that time.

A chair was opened in Jawaharlal Nehru University last year. Named after the legendary writer of the state, Adi Kabi Sarala Das, the chair is aimed at encouraging students of the varsity to learn Odia and carry out research in the area.

The Odia language chair in the Central University, Hyderabad, would be named after Bhaktakabi Madhusudan Rao. Another chair at Gandhinagar University in Gujarat will be named Utkal Bharati Kuntala Kumari Sabat chair.

At present, eight government universities in Odisha, focusing on conventional streams of higher education, have Odia departments, but no chairs in Odia language. The chair at Utkal and Berhampur varsities are not active either.

Odia was accorded a classical language status by government of India in 2014. Four years after Odia language was officially granted classical status, the state government is yet to set up the centre of excellence for the study of Odia language.
