Friends, I'm the resident of Orissa, a province in the eastern coastal range of India. Today, 1st April 2008 is the 72nd birth anniversary of my province. It got the status of a province on the basis of language 'ORIYA' on this date of 1936. My province is the abode of Lord Jagannath at Puri. I love my province as well as my language ORIYA (Mother tongue) very much. I welcome all friends those know my province and / my language to comment on my discussion.
