Gangadhar Meher (1862-1924) is well-known all over Orissa as swabhaba kabi, a born genius', for his poetry that is delightfully direct, spontaneous and full of natural grace. He occupies as distinguished a place in Oriya poetic canon as Radhanath Ray and Madhusudan Rao, his senior contemporaries and synthesizes the best of both poets such as the former's artistic beauty and the latter's philosophical depth with his own a rich fare of authentic human sentiments, moral concerns and staunch spiritual faith, all animated by a mythopoeic imagination and culminating in a cosmic vision of ananda or divine bliss. Meher's oeuvre is immense, characterized by a wide range of formal and tonal variations. His long epic narratives, namely' Tapaswini, Pranaya Ballari and Kichaka Badha have been regarded as classics of Oriya poetry. Printed Pages: 950.
