- About POCS
- Mission and Vision
Prabasi Oriya Cultural Society, ever since its inception, has been functioning on its primary goal of serving as a cultural bridge between the people, who have emigrated from Orissa and settled in different parts of Tamilnadu, and local people of the state of Tamilnadu. The purpose is twofold and highly synergistic in nature. One it strengthens and propagates the Oriyan culture among its native people, even though they are far away from their homeland, and two, it promotes a harmonious relationship with the local culture having the roots of origin from the ancient times when the king of Orissa was married to Padmavathi, the princess of kancheepuram.
A group of young, energetic and enthusiastic individuals form the core group of the society, who have dedicated themselves to the indomitable task of merging the people belonging to the two cultures and taking the responsibility of sharing the available resources to common benefit and progress. This will greatly help new settlers, especially of Oriyan origin, who either seek local information or assistance in terms of medical, living, business or profession. At the same time the local people can be in touch with the society to open up new vistas of business, education, matrimonial relationships and other social tie-ups.
The specific field objectives of the society, on immediate agenda, addressing the most essential needs of the settlers are enumerated below:
- To be a source of introduction, guidance and support for freshly emigrated people from Orissa coming to Tamilnadu for the first time or locally less acquainted.
- Furnish current and relevant information on important aspects of the state and the city catering to their medical, personal, professional, and other basic essential needs.
- Make the Oriyan settlers feel at home by feeding their domestic and vocational interest with local opportunities and resources.
- To enrich and enhance the harmony between the Oriyan culture and the local culture by conducting social gatherings and exchanging information pertaining to the rich heritage and traditional practices of the two cultures.
To achieve this noble mission and the enumerated objectives, the Society has made optimal use of latest advancements in technology too, especially the Internet, by articulating an interactive website (www.prabasioriya.com) that serves as a storehouse of information and resources necessary for the purpose.
With the right set of people having the right attitude and intention, equipped with adequate resources to deal with the task on hand, the Society aims at enlarging both the scope of its services and the participation of more and more people from both the cultures towards the common objective of living together harmoniously and progressing with prosperitly.
Mission and Vision
This page is under construction.
This is a newly formed endeavor started by the PRABASI ORIYA CULTURAL SOCIETY(POCS) Chennai to teach the Odia (Oriya) language to our children residing in Chennai. Since we are reside outside of Odisha it becomes practically very difficult for our children to read, write and speak in our mother tongue. Today, increasingly our children are unable to communicate properly with their grandparents visiting them from their native place in the Odia language. It is our moral responsibility to pass on the language which our ancestors have taught us to our children. It is important that our children know the Odia language even to apply for a job under the Odisha Government. No fees are collected at AMA CHATSALI to teach the Odia language. Students are given slates, chhabila madhu barnabodha text books and Odia handwriting notebooks free of cost. The class timings are: Saturday from 8 - 9 pm and Sunday from 9 - 10 am.
There is a saying - "If you have a garden and a library, you have everything in life." Thus, POCS started this initiative of a library for allwith the belief that "There are many little ways to enlarge our child's world. Love of books is the best of all." This initiative is a dream come true for anyone interested in reading.This library will have the best books in the Odia language along with books in other languages. Here, we provide an opportunity for everyone to develop a lifelong reading habit in their mother tongue as well as other languages.
At POCS we all believe that "The greatest wealth is health" and with this philosophy we have started this initiative. The AMA SWASTHYA initiativeprovides an end to end solution for good health. We organise health awareness camps on various health related subjects, conduct health camps, camps on yoga training and also spread awareness on eye andorgan donation. Many established hospitals and doctors are committed to extend their support to take this noble initiative forward.
