Nandita Das said,” I am half Odia and half Gujarati. I did not understand why so few people knew anything about Odisha. I wondered why they knew so little about a state that had so much to offer.”
“I am a firm believer in the multiplicity of identities, and for me being an Oriya is just one of the many things that I am. In my growing up years, I was fortunate to have been exposed to the vast variety of Oriya food, dance, architecture, music, literature, crafts, weaves and nature in virgin abundance,” she added.
