BBRC- Research Collaborations

During the post covid period particularly after 2021, the chair has taken initiatives to enage many important public libraries in Odisha. Some of them are Public Library, Sambalpur, Nabin Sahu Museum, Jyoti vihar, State Museum Odisha, Odisha Sahitya Academy, Sahitya Akademy, New Delhi, Ashrams of Mahima cult of the locality including Joranda, Khaliapali, Kandhara, Madhupur, Kankanapada, Sohela, Mahimapuram (Bijapali),Bartunda, Bedalpat, Gujapahad, Budharaja etc. Most of them are local libraries but they contain important information about Bhima Bhoi and Mahima Dharma. The Chair had a formal dialogue with these institutions and there will be shortly mutual exchange of research material through exchange programmes.

The chair has also entered a formal MOU with KISS, Bhubaneswar with the sole objective to promote research on Bhima Bhoi and Mahima Dharma. The chair recently had started a dialogue with Andhra Pradesh Central University to enter into a formal engagement to carryforward the teachings of Bhima Bhoi.

Although, several interdisciplinary projects focused on Mahima Dharma, Bhima Bhoi and deprived section of the society have been initiated in these years and are ongoing with optimal use of resources and to the best of the abilities. With strongly believe that there is more work to be done in this field. The centre will undertake more innovative research projects in future and thereby, emerge as a learning hub and resource centre preserving the live and work of Bhima Bhoi.
