2 Ileana Citaristi
Traditional Martial Practices in Odisha
Shubhi Publications; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8182901359 / 9788182901353; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; Ileana Citaristi 
The book by the celebrity danseuse Padmasree, Ileana Citaristi vividly captures the martial arts of Odisha, specially the Paik dance of a bygone era, when Paiks (derived from padatik) infantry foot soldiers of the then kalinga (the ancient name of Odisha) kept themselves in war-readliness by rigorously practicing the armed and unarmed combat styles. The book is all about such forgotten stories of valor, the skills developed with of without the swords and spears, all for the sake of protecting the motherland, the highest form of dedication and sacrifice, which is faithfully portrayed by the dancer-writer. Interwoven with the martial art fomr are the rituals, the code of ethics and the religious practices which are still being practiced in the districts of Odisha. The book will give the reader an insight into these seemingly innocuous practices but suffused with folklores and associated with historical events that speak volumes of the heroism of the hereditary foot soldiers. Meticulously researched and well documented the book provides a wealth of information and can be valuable reference material to any student of history, culture and art forms. Here is a dancer who is occidental by birth, belongs to a distant land but holds a lens to the glorious history of the oriental, through its indigenous martial art forms and thereby scripts a tale of the ordinary Paiks but extraordinary brave foot soldiers of medieval Odisha.
