Dibakar Parida

Dibakar Parida

Many glorious chapters of Orissan history have not seen the light of the day. The deep patriotism and supreme sacrifice of the illustrious family of martyr Dibakar Parida can only be compared with that of revolutionary Chapekar brothers of Maharastra. While Saheed Dibakar had spear headed the Praja Rebellion of Ranapur, his Patriot brothers Ratnakar and Chakradhar (The Oriya Recruiting Officer of Azad Hind Fouj) and younger sister Indumati had followed his foot prints by involving themselves with the Indian freedom struggle and Ranapur Praja Revolt of 1937-38.
