Saswat Pattanayak’s meticulous reports in the Asian Age on the killer cyclone that devastated Orissa in 1999 were incorporated in the first and the only speaking book on the subject co-authored by him and Adyapak Biswaranjan. The book was published by INSIGHT, Puri and was launched by Orissa’s Chief Minister Mr. Naveen Patnaik in 2000.
It is of immense referral value at the moment. But it has gone out of print.
Publisher of orissamatters.com, ‘The NEWS Syndicate’ has, in public interest, published relevant portions of the book in scribd.com website.
Our esteemed visitors and personnel who matter in Orissa administration may gain by going through the same.
