So some sly tweets and shades thrown at me for calling out the anti-science part of conducting Puri #rathajatraJatra this year. Official inconsistencies about the positive cases notwithstanding, some basic science education for the smarter-by-the-half folks. #Odisha

China & Singapore data shows pre-symptomatic spread accounts for 50 to 75% of the spread. Asymptomatic infection has been shown to be be from 4-32% in studies reported by WHO. #covidscience #Odisha

A thread on Patta-Chitra : The beginings and evolution
A Painting tradition mostly associated to Lord Jagannath
#Odisha #Pattachitra and the Chitrakaras
PATA means canvas, and chitra means picture. So, pata- chitra or pata-painting means a scroll painting on canvas. These forms are different from the coloured illustrations on the palm-leaf manuscripts as well as from the rural folk- paintings.
The exact beginning of these pata-chitras cannot be determined but they have been existing in various parts of Odisha for a long time.

Today is #NationalHandloomDay. Handwoven textiles are the original #MakeInIndia product. The handloom sector employs the second largest no of people in India after agriculture, in weaving as well as in ancillary activities like dyeing, spinning, setting up the loom, starching etc
Every state in India has its own tradition of hand-woven textiles. The known history of Indian hand-woven textiles goes back to almost 5000 years, and many of the weaves are still continuing to be woven in an unbroken, living tradition. #NationalHandloomDay #HandloomTwitter
People from the Sindhu-Saraswati civilzation has mastered weaving weaving. A madder-dyed scrap of fabric found at Mohenjo-Dado proves that our people knew the art of growing cotton, spinning yarn, weaving cloth as well as dyeing yarn using natural colours. #NationalHandloomDay

While I was in #Odisha, it was fascinating to spend time with the potters of Goudaguda village in #Koraput. There are about 20-30 potters in the colony and it’s possible to watch them at work. This is the start of the #pottery process, mixing up the clay.
This makes it easy to pick up the clay.
Mixing the clay is a very physically demanding process!
