Odia Littérateur Ramakrushna Nanda's 4 Books Now Available Under a Creative Commons License

Posted by Subhashish Panigrahi at Oct 22, 2014 08:05 AM |
Children literature in Odia language went through an ennoblement after the intervention of Ramakrushna Nanda's writings.

His poetry “Ahe Dayamaya Biswa Bihari” has been sung in every school in Odisha. His work around Odia poetry, language and grammar, essays and encyclopaedia have been greatest resources for children for quite a few decades. CIS-A2K is honored to now bring four of his books under Creative Commons Share Alike (CC-by-SA 4.0) license:

  1. Biswa Parihay (Encyclopaedia)
  2. Lekhanira Pathasala (Grammar)
  3. Bhabi Dekhantu (Compilation of essays)
  4. Pausa Sandhyara Gapa (Compilation of stories)

The larger plans after this is to bring these books online on Odia Wikisource by scanning and digitizing them.
