Pleasure seeking is the basic principle of the life style of Puri people. Collective activities with feast and merrymaking is their usual way of spending leisure and recreation. The local life style of Puri people consist of Sanga (friends), Bhanga (taking Canavis Indica), Sangeeta (music), Pangata (feast). This is called Mauja (recreation) in singular term and the traditional Puri people is somewhat philosophical in substantiating the validity of mauja in following words -“Marigale Pani Patrie paibu mauja paibu kahun? ( ମରିଗଲେ ପାଣି ପାଟିରେ ପାଇବୁ ମଉଜ ପାଇବୁ କାହୁଁ (After death, one is only entitled to get a spoon of water as homage; but can he get recreational pleasure like this ?).
