Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan (Deemed to be University), which supports social action and works for the betterment of the society, strongly believes that efforts should always be made to preserve and promote culture and linguistic heritage. SOA, for the first time, organized the SOA Literary Festival in Bhubaneswar on February 1 and 2, 2020 which attracted a galaxy of literary figures from across the country. The interface of great authors, poets and story tellers, young and old, contributed greatly to the cause of Indian literature and focused on the rich cultural legacy of Odisha. It provided an opportunity to budding writers to interact with eminent authors and publishers on this platform.
SOA believes that though science and technology are the vehicles through which modern society’s progress is made possible, it should be done in an atmosphere which is fragrant with art, culture and literature. The University plans to add more institutes on Fine and Digital Art, Humanities and Social Sciences in the years ahead.
