Martyrs' Memorial

In order to keep alive the memory of those Obeeans who laid down their lives while in active service in the Indian Armed Forces, Brig. L.C. Patnaik innovate the idea to construct a Martyrs  Memorial in the school campus in 2002. OBA sprang into action immediately.

The foundation stone of the memorial was laid on 05.01.2003 by Smt. Kanchanlata Sahoo, proud mother of 2 IAF officers. Obeean Prakash and Pradip who laid down their lives for the nation.

   

The Bhoomi Puja of the Memorial was performed by the Hon’ble  Chief Minister of Orissa Shri Naveen Patnaik on 15/12/2002. Our dream of having a Martyrs’ Memorial came true when it has dedicated to the nation in a glittering and colorful ceremony on 12/12/2004 by the Hon’ble Defence Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee.

OBA took initiative to construct a park and boundary wall around the Martyrs’ Memorial. Our goal was achieved because of generous donation from a large number of well wishers including the Orissa Mining Corporation and the Indian Air Force. Sahid Park was inaugurated by the then Chief of Air staff, Air Chief Marshal S. P. Tyagi on 25/12/2006.

Indian Air Force again came forward to help us by making arrangement, for illumination of the Park. An aircraft was also installed by them which was inaugurated by the then Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Foli. Major on 11/01/2009.

Late Sushama Tripathy.
