Anti-war poem ‘Pakaana Boma’ video released

Wednesday, 13 March 2019 | PNS | BHUBANEWAR

A video based on a dance by Kathak Kathak danseuse Anindita on an anti-war poem ‘Pakaana Boma’ written by Prassana Kumar Mishra was released in YouTube on the International Women’s Day on March 8.

Produced under the banner of Prachitara films, the camera has been handled by Suvendu Ghadai and Shaaz Anaam while post production has been done at Phoenix Films Lab.

“The world is going through a rough phase of political instability in many countries including border tensions brewing between us and our neighbours. So we felt perhaps this is the right time to release the project and send this message of love, peace and non-violence”, says journalist-anchor-storyteller Prachitara. This is the first ever duet of recitation and dance in Odia.

“The dance has been beautifully choreographed by one of the finest Kathak dancers Anindita.  Each word has been portrayed with immense emotion and facial expression. I had sent her the recitation of the poem and the English translation for her reference,” says Prachitara.

“I met Prachi during my visit to Odisha for a show and while we were discussing on various issues and how a classical dancer needs to tell a story away from mythology and epics to connect the younger audience, she came up with the proposal of doing something artistic with a poem penned by her father. It was a poem which encapsulated the feeling of helplessness and tragedies war comes with. Everyone pays a heavy price and there is no winner in this man-made catastrophe for power carefully executed by few ruling politicians,” says US-based Kathak danseuse Anindita.
