Odia Naba Barsa (Pana Sankranti), 2018

This was the second event organized by OSCAN on 26th April 2018 at Diamond Party Centrum, Amstelveen. Odias in the Netherlands showered their love and interest towards the event and this time, we had received registration of about 180 odias for the event.

OSCAN made sure that the event in itself was a complete package. Commencing the event with Authentic Bela pana as welcome drinks OSCAN had given a floor to many other enthusiasts in the field of story writing/acting apart from cultural activities of dance and song. OSCAN had organized the traditional GHODA NACHA, be it making the props or writing the script for the NACHA, it was entirely done by the Oscan family lead by our very talented Mr. Nrusingha Nayak.

Followed by this, there was a Ramp show & also some sports activities(Badminton). People who had participated were awarded prizes at the end of the show. During its journey, OSCAN had received many encouraging and Promotional messages from varied personalities like Honorable CM of Odisha -Sri Naveen Pattnaik, Vetenary actor-Late Bijay Mohanty, and many more. Last but not the least, we had our own OSCAN Magazine and Tshirts also as a Token of take-a-away this time. We also had various solo and group performances, a skit, beats from a DJ, and a fashion show. Solo performances at the event were the results of days of hard practice.
