BHUBANESWAR: Industries apart, Orissa, it seems, is also fast emerging as an attractive destination for setting up private universities. The latest in the fray being spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

The founder of the Art of Living Foundation (ALF) has evinced keen interest to set up a university which will not only teach Science, Arts and Commerce, but also impart programmes on performing arts and spiritualism.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is likely to sign an MoU with the State Government in this connection during his visit to the State next month.

The details of the project and its location would, however, be finalised later. Talking to mediapersons here on Wednesday, ALF member Debjoyti Mohanty said Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had a special relationship with Orissa and its people.

That he is truly committed to the well-being of the people is also reflected by his decision to set up a vedic school at Puri and holding the golden jubilee celebration of the ALF, Eastern region, at Bhubaneswar, he stated.

The golden jubilee celebration will kick off on December 10 at Janata Maidan here. The guru will hold satsangs and interact with his followers.

Tickets can be purchased from the Bharat Petroleum outlets in the City.

They have been priced at Rs 500. Eminent artistes from the State and outside are also expected to perform at the celebration, Mohanty informed.
