About Us

Lucknow Oriya Samaj came into being in the year 1993 as an outcome of initiatives taken by a group of highly motivated members of the Odia community of Lucknow to launch a platform which could enable the Odia speaking people of the city to remain rooted to their culture, language and traditions. Much water has flown down the Gomti as the organization has grown from strength to strength covering many eventful years of its successful existence.

The organization now consists of more than 200 members. Cultural and social events of various kind mark the prime activities of the organization, the celebration of Utkal Diwas (Odisha Day), Kartik Purnima , Ganesh Puja and Sarasawti Puja every year being the foremost among them. Competitions such as quiz, music, painting and elocution are organized annually. An Odia Food Festival has also been started in the year 2014. 'Nirmalya' is an annual publication of the organisation which is released on the 1st of April every year on the occasion of Odisha Day.  

The organization also discharges its social responsibilities by rising to the occasion during natural calamities, by undertaking relief and rehabilitation measures of various kind. Subsequent to the super cyclone which caused mass devastation in the state of Odisha in 1999, Lucknow Oriya Samaj mobilized resources for relief and rehabilitation worth more than Rs. 2 crores, and constructed 39 primary and high school buildings in the cyclone hit area which now also serve as shelter houses in natural calamities. The organisation donated funds for relief operations for the flood-victims in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Odisha at various points of time.

Membership of the organization is open to all belonging to the Odia community of Lucknow, as well as to all who are interested to remain connected with the Odia community of the city. Membership registrations may be done by providing the necessary information in the “Member Registration” tab available on this site.
