The Tourism department of Odisha has planned to release a short Sand Animation Film to promote Shree Jagannath Nabakalebara.
The Movie is prepared by world famous sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik and his students. The duration of the film is 10 minutes.
The film reflects the rituals associated with Nabakalebara, starting from Banajaga Yatra (search for neem trees by Daitapati servitors of Puri temple) to Ghata Paribartan (transferring the Brahma to the new idols). The background music will have religious songs of Shree Jagannath.
Sudarsan Pattnaik has already created a number of enchanting sand arts on Nabakalebara for global promotion of the festival. We hope the sand animation film will catch the fancy of tourists.
