The Japanese version of Odia ‘Sarala Mahabharat’, which penned by Adikabi Sarala Das will be released at Japan soon.
SARALA DAS IS KNOWN AS THE “AADIKAVI” (THE FIRST POET) OF ORIYA LITERATURE. HE LIVED AND WROTE IN THE 15TH CENTURY. MAHABHARAT IS HIS MAGNUM OPUS. THE EPISODES IN SARALA’S MAHABHARAT ARE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM THOSE IN VYASA’S (SANSKRIT) MAHABHARAT.
There are many Mahabharatas, and “Sarala Mahabharata”, composed by Sarala Das in Odia in the fifteenth century, is one of them. Mahabharatas, composed in local languages, have received neglect from Mahabharata scholars in general.
Just one year before the Hindi edition of Odia ‘Sarala Mahabharat,’ was released at the India International Centre, Delhi on September 17 by Odisha culture minister Ashok Chandra Panda.
