Although I am from Balasore a city on the banks of “Bay-of-Bengal”in *Odisha* state but I never had a chance to visit *Baripada*the HQ Township of the adjacent Tribal District *Mayurbhanj* during *Rath Yatra* the famous *Car Festival* of Baripada.
The Tribals ready in their typical costumes with Drummers were performing in front of the Jagannath Mandir & for the first I saw the Tribal people dancing to the beats of the Drums just unique to the *Santhali Tribals*and *Lord Jagannath**Balabhadra*& *Subhadra* were taken from the Temole to their respective *Chariots*Raths.
Tribal Drummers with their Huge Drums just unique to Sathalis beating druns to the right tunes and the entire environment was so unique to observe.
It was a real unique occasion to watch so closely and that too for the first time in my life.
I dedicate it to all………..
