@OdiaCulture @ANWESH5PATI @ashishsarangi can you affirm , i heard this from someone that after Kalinga war Ashoka won, Kalinga again won the war and took back everything which was stolen. I heard this is written in hanthigumpha script, who was the king then #KharabelaTheGreat .

While Ashokan rock eddicts at dhauligiri reminds the subjugation of Kalinga by foreign power, #KharabelaTheGreat made sure Hatigumpha at Udayagiri bore the mark of the rise of kalinga from ashes !

Kudos to @OdiaCulture & fellow tweeps for the trend #KharabelaTheGreat ….
The saga of the legendary king of Utkal Pradesh who held sway from the south of Ganges to the north of Krishna needs to be told, retold and possibly deserves a grand bio-pic. Hail Kharabela.

When a language die, a history die, science has proven a civilisation die of malnutrition of glory. Rest is how we think , how we act. Glorious moments need preservation by community, nothing wrong if anyone glorify their good deeds of ancestors. #KharabelaTheGreat https://t.co/RD2T053FvX

#KharabelaTheGreat in his first reign, employed people to repair other public works in the same year cost him 35 lakh of coins from the exchequer.

After his great victory, #KharabelaTheGreat had built Mahavijayaprasad on the banks of Prachi river towards Konark, but now totally lost. Historian says that the loc is Junei village, but it's to be proved

The Seventeen line deep incised Brahmi Prakrit inscription of #Kharabela himself provides most about his illustrious career of 15yrs. In the line.16 while discussing about the 13th yr of his reign the inscription provides genealogy of Mahameghabahana dynasty.#KharabelaTheGreat pic.twitter.com/qjDm4Zwvoj
