Jayanta Mahapatra  ଜୟନ୍ତ ମହାପାତ୍ର

* 22.10.1928, Cuttack, Índia
vive em: Cuttack, Índia

Jayanta Mahapatra, born on 22 October 1928 in Cuttack, belongs to a lower middle-class family. His early education was already conducted in English. After his Master's Degree in Physics in 1949, he worked as a teacher and served in different Government colleges of Orissa.

Jayanta Mahapatra began writing poems rather late in comparison with his contemporaries. But this late beginning does not in anyway distort his achievement. His poems have appeared in most of the reputed journals of the world. He received various prestigious Indian and international Awards for his poetic works.

The richness and sophistication of language, the softness and delicacy of the words chosen, systematized orchestration of authenticated experiences through the exact palpability of images, the sincerity of harping on the 'feel' of the experiences rather than on their 'thought', the sweetness of music emerging from a fountain-like flow of the verse-form contribute to the greatness and ingenuity of Mohapatra's poetry.
