Title Review

The book is authored by celebrity danseuse Padmashri-winner Ileana Citaristi. In this volume, she deals with the martial arts of the state of Odisha, in particular, the Paik dance that was performed in medieval Odisha by the Paik infantry soldiers. The soldiers kept themselves ready for war by practising the armed and unarmed combat styles. Well-researched and documented, the work is based on field studies and showcases data collected from 1992 to 1996. It delves in-depth into the martial art form, interweaving it with aspects like rituals, code of ethics and religious practices, as well as folklore and historical events, recounting forgotten stories of bravery of the Paik soldiers and the kind of skills they developed through their combat styles.
