Odisha Forum has been able to meet once every month and has deliberated upon important issues like planning for progress and the development paradigm related to Odisha. The Forum organised a seminar on “Make in Odisha” which focused on the prospects of industrialisation in Odisha and its likely benefit.
In one of the events, the Forum remembered the contribution of literary giants like Gopinath Mohanty and Fakir Mohan Senapati and paid tributes to the literary stalwarts. Odisha Forum also organised a memorable slide show by avid bird watchers who gave glimpses of winged visitors in and around Lake Chilika. The Forum also talked about eco-tourism and discovered many little beauty spots hidden away from the maddening crowd within Odisha.
The Odisha Forum New Delhi has focused on the contribution of personalities like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in the formative years and also discussed the mystery surrounding his death.
The Forum members had the privilege to listen to many eminent speakers like Dr Sitakanta Mahapatra, Prof Manoj Das, Bikram Grewal, Justice Arijit Pasayat, Lalit Mansingh, Amitabh Kant, TV Narendran, Dr Manoj Panda, Dr Sumanya Satpathy and Dr Prabhat Patnaik in many talks organised in FY 2015-16.
