Eminent publishing house Bharata Bharati that has published all my books so far has brought out two of my new titles, one a poetic translation of the famous songs of immortal Maithili poet Vidyapati, compiled under the caption VIDYAPATINKA PREMAGEET, wherein, for scholars, I have made breaking discussions on socio-political environment of his writings. And the other one, titled as SMRUTIREKHA is poetic presentation of the intricate feelings of a lover to whom his requited love was lost. These are my contributions to Oriya literature outside my professional cocoon.
Modern Orissa’s most celebrated poet Sri Ramakant Rath has given his kind consent to inaugurate the books. Dr. Pramod Kumar Mohanty would discuss on VIDYAPATINKA PREMAGEET, and Dr. Sneha Das on SMRUTIREKHA whereas Dr.H.P.Pariccha Pattanaik, Secretary of Orissa Sahitya Academy would speak on both the books on the aspect of lucidity vis-à-vis modernity. Adhyapak Biswaranjan shall chair.
The event will take place in the auditorium of Red Cross Bhawan at 6 PM on Sunday, December 6, 2009.
It would be cherished for ever if any of you happen to be present at Bhubaneswar and find it convenient to attend the function.
