ନିଜେ ଗୋପପୁର ନିଜେ ମଥୁରା

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

ସିଏ ମୋର ଦୁର୍ବଳତା
ପୁଣି ମୋର
ଦୁର୍ବଳତା-ଦୂରକାରୀ ବଳ
ମୋ ନିଖିଳ ସଂଘର୍ଷରେ
ସିଏ ମୋର ଚିର ସହଚର ∣

ତା କଥା ପଡ଼ିଲେ ମନେ
ପୃଥିବୀ ପଳାଏ କ୍ଷଣେ ,
ପଳାଏ ସଂସାର;
ପଳାଏ କୁଆଡେ଼ ମୋର ବୋଧଶକ୍ତି
ମୁଁ ଆଉ ନ ରହେ ନିଜର ∣

ଶୋଇବା ଆଗରୁ ଯଦି
ଅବା ହ୍ବାଟ୍ସଅପେ
ରୂପ ତାର ଝଳେ ,
ନିଦ ଆସେ ଅସୀମ ଶାନ୍ତିରେ ∣

ନିଦ ଶେଷେ
କାକଳିର ତାଳେ ତାଳେ
ତାହାରି ଉଦୟ
ଜୀବନକୁ କରେ ଆଭାମୟ ;
ଜୀବନ୍ମୟ ହୁଏ ମୋର
ସକଳ ସମୟ ∣

ମୋଓଠୁ ଦୂରରେ ସିଏ ,
ସିଏ ବି ମୋ ପଞ୍ଜରା ଭିତରେ ;
ଶୟନେ ସ୍ବପନେ ଥାଏ
ଥାଏ ଜାଗରଣେ ମୋର ନିଖିଳ ସତ୍ତାରେ ∣

ତଥାପି ନ ମାନେ ଆଖି
ଖୋଜିବୁଲେ ତାହାରି ବଦନ
ଶୁଣିବାକୁ ସ୍ବର ତାର କାନପାତେ
ଶୁଣେ କିନ୍ତୁ ନିଜର ରୋଦନ !

ଯଶୋଦା ମା ଯେତେବେଳେ
ବାହୁନି ଉଠିଲେ –
“କୋଇଲି ଲୋ କେଶବ ଯେ ମଥୁରାକୁ ଗଲା
କାହା ବୋଲେ ଗଲା ପୁତ୍ର ବାହୁଡ଼ି ନଇଲା ∣”
ସେ କ’ଣ ଜାଣି ନଥିଲେ ଯେ ,
ସେ ନିଜେ ନିଜ ଗୋପପୁର
ଏବଂ ନିଜେ ହିଁ ମଥୁରା ?

ମଣିଷଠୁ ମଣିଷର
କେତେ ଦୂର ?
ସତେ କେତେ ଦୂର ?

Death dose not make everybody die. Some remain unforgettable for their humanitarian virtues. Smt. Shnehalata Pattanayak, Kuni Apa to many, is one such person.

Here is a solemn obituary:-


Late Lamented Kahnu Charan Pattanayak

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak
On January 30, 1984, my elder father Kahnu Charan Pattanayak who had adopted me from the moment of my birth had passed away. He had shaped my life. Here is a very short account:

Orissa is blatantly cheated in matter National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG)- 2017-18 as the State Government has proposed that English should be the medium of examination. This test is meant to select the most talented students of the nation for medical education. One may peruse the article published in Suryaprava on December 27, 2016 to get apprised on the harm done to Orissa.on-non-inclusion-of-oriya-in-neet-copy

Demonetization: The Real Danger to India

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak
Had demonetization been the real instrument to eliminate black money, the turmoil we Indians have been pushed into would have been worth suffering.

But, from behind the screen of demonetization, the real danger is threatening India.

Here is how I perceive it:


Kalinga War and Kali of Orissa

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

A man called Markandey Katju, who, once upon a time, had headed the Press Council of India, has attracted acrimonious attention of Orissa by spreading wrong information on Kalinga War, through the social media FaceBook. Failure of history to record what exactly had happened in Kalinga War has given birth to a bit confusion in certain circles in Orissa too. Even some learned Oriyas doubt if Ashok was a reality and a war like Kalinga war was really fought. Against this backdrop, for these Oriyas, I reproduce here a relevant extract from my book SRIJAYA DEVANKA BAISSI PAHACHA.

The link below shall lead to the relevant portion of my book.



Bhagabati’s Ghinua and Paul Robson’s Joe Hill

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Bhagabati Panigrahi was one of the three founders of Communist Party of India in Orissa. He had contributed immensely to the literature that had created a new era of revolution. His story Shikar had the hero in Ghinua to whom an exploiter deserved to be killed like a tiger that endangered human life. The administration had hanged him to death. And his death has made him immortal. Similarly, Paul Robson’s Joe Hill refuses to die despite death.

I pay my homage to Bhagabati by translating Robson’s poem to club the same with Ghinua.

Now Only You

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

June 24 needs no mention of the year. Life is what it was years before and what it will be hereafter. When sometimes one feels that in the vast sea of time, years with a number tag like 1974 or 2015 carry no permanency, only a day of significance appears permanent. And, one such day in my life is June 24 when Sabita had come to my life. She is the gift of my parents to me as I am of her parents to her.

As we age, deeper becomes our oneness under the blessings of our late lamented parents. Love fills up life and brings up a feeling of love beyond life.

The attached poem depicts this feeling.
