Immortal Pt. Raghunath Panigrahi

Pt. Raghunath Panigrahi on the pyre
I stand silently in your honor, immortal Pt. Raghunath Panigrahi!

I suffer sever shortage of words to offer my oblation to you; and I know, how much I say, it will never be the last oblation.

I am only one of crores of Oriyas, each of who had a heart that you reigned over.

But, I know, I have a corner in my heart where your rule shall continue for ever.

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

  1. Pt Raghunath Panigrahi is a jewel of Odisha. Born in a middle class family in a rather underdeveloped area of Odisha, he rose miles above others who looked upon him as a star they could never match with. At a private level, he was known for his greatness in simplicity. A grateful Odisha will look on.
