Bhubaneswar, September 6 (odisha.in) The Non-Resident Oriya Facilitation Center at Bhubaneswar that works in liaison with the NRO Cell of Government of Orissa has invited articles for a souvenir that it plans to publish on the occasion of upcoming Pravasi Oriya Divas here.
The centre is going to organise the 4th pravasi Oriya divas on coming December 23.
It is going to publish a souvenir on this occasion. We are inviting articles on endeavors of NROs in developing Orissa, no matter how small it may be, an official of the centre told odisha.in.
The Ruchi Prativa Foundation has decided to institute an international award by style of Prabasi Prative Samman to honour an NRO of outstanding achievements which have enhanced the image of Orissa in the World.
The award would be given annually at the Prabasi Utkaliya Divas. The award carries a citation, engraved in a copper/silver plaque, a trophy and a shawl. NROFC is free to makes rules for selecting an eminent overseas Oriya for this award.
NROFC invites nominations from associations or their regional/provincial chapters, from all over the world, with reasons why they recommend the person for the award, giving details of how he/she has helped in creating a better image of Oriyas and Orissa in the world map.
