Who we are?

Staying thousand miles away from mother state, the Odia hearts  thrived to bond together on the basis of our strong and common socio-cultural underpinnings. This feeling of belongingness evolved into the formation of Odisha Sanskrutika Parishad (OSP) dating back to 1973.

Every year since then, Odia students getting selected to study in different academic disciplines of JNU become part of this organisation.  Through diverse activities and creative endeavors, the organisation has created a distinct identity for itself not only in New Delhi, but in Odisha as well during its 4 decades as a true representation of Odias in JNU campus.
