Mo Heera Kete Sundara

Arati Nanda


Paahaanti sukra taaraa
Nirmala snigdha mo Heera
Sakaala ra shishu Surjya
Mo dukha paasora. (1)

Dara phutaa golaapa kadhi ru
aspasta Maa daaka
Nei jaae mo aatmaa mana ru
rakhi die bheka. (2)

Phutantaa padma mruga shishu aakhi
dhala dhala chanchala
Baandhi dhare mote dekhi
Chhaade naahin mo anchala.(3)

Godhuli ra raktima kirana
Chanchala batschhya daaka hammaa
Rushi jiba na kale purana
Taa aakhi re kotie chumaa. (4)

Saja phutaa Malli ra baasnaa re
mahaku thaae mo pabitra dhana
chhuti jaae tikhna begare
Pabitra Gangaa taara mana. (5)

Kebe kebe jebe mun kam kathA kahe
Samasta nkra hrudaya ku sparsha kari jAe,
Puni kebe anargala sphurita bakrutA
Upasthita shrotA nkara shruti katu hue. (1)

Mo Akhi ra mAna bharA nata abhimAna
ShilA dehe param bramha darshana kare,
Kebe kebe ganda siktka ashrula nayana
Shunya bhikhyA thAla dhari jhuri jhuri mare. (2)

Dhire dhire purna abhyAsa ra sama tAle
NadI hoi parbata ra pArshwa chiri jAe,
Atyadhika abhyAsa re hoi nishA khor
Samaya ra sAthe sAthe nimna gAmI hue. (3)

Eka gAndhI sAji, ahinsA ra khadga dhari
Bijaya ullAse mun matuAlA hue,
Puni kebe krodha bashe, Atma gyAna dhwonse
MamatA ra bandhana ku dhwonsa kari die. (4)

SImAnta ra dui bindu janma Au mrutyu
Charana chumuchhi, bAunsha rAnI ra rajju,
BhAra sAmya rakhyA kari langhi jibi meru
AtikrAnta chalA patha pArijAta sAju. (5)

Byabadhaana

Arati Nanda


Chalaa raastaa re chaalu chaalu
Bhetuchhi, niti prati dina
Aneka chinhaan achinhaan muhan
Hasa khusi ra samishrana.

Aatmika sukha re ki'e baa hasuchhi
Dainya ra bhaara re ki'e baa kaanduchhi
Mo mana darpana ra pratibimba
Khyana ke milei jaauchhi.

Padma pari gotie muhan
Hasu thaa'e e'te muhan re
Prati ti khyane unki uthe
Mo bhaabana baadal re.

Khoji baaku chestaa kare
E aakhi ti mishuchhi ki
Mo Heera ra aakhi re?
E paati ti kahuchhi ki
Mo Munu ra bhaasha re?

Sate abaa tote paa'e
Maricheekaa bhrama re
Kintu para muhoorte
Sachetana mana kahe
Mo Heera mo thaaru achhi
Sahasra maaila doorare.

Europa Jatra

Note from the Author

I fully realize that any oriyan who reads the poem will find that some of his favourite words are misspelt. But this seems unavoidable. The ultimate aim is to offer the fragrance of oriya rhythm before it could really be produced in its original script. Here, there are few German words which are reproduced exactly without giving the actual pronunciation. Therefore, your commands on my offhand errors are highly appreciated. In the end, I record a very personal word of thanks to my friend Dr. Swati Mohanty (Germany) for her fruitful correspondence on its highest possible oriya accent.


                  Mo jeebana ra itihaasa prushthaa re
                  jebe smruti pushpa prashphutita hue,
                  ateeta chitrapata, mana aakaasha re
                  mallee, juee aadi indradhanu saaje.(1) 

Prakruti ra raanee      mora maatrubhoomi
          bhaashaa re jaahaara muktaa
bharidei thilaa         hrudaya ku mora
          pabitra prema ushnataa.(2) 

                  Pashchimaa sooruja melaani deuchhi
                  hrudaya spandana uthuchhi paduchhi
                  pitaa maataa bhaatru bhagnee ra mamataa
                  shesha darshana ra saakshee 'KALIKATAA'.(3)

Shuklapaksha ashtamee tithi re jebe
durgaamedha maayaa jaala srushti kare
jyotsnaa-snaataa byomajaana mora, ebe
europa abhimukhe jaatraa kare. (4)

                  Jaa-a-naa jaa-a-naa         he bidyut gaamee
                              pherichaala mora deshe
                  priyajana priya         kathaara maadhoorjya
                              piibaaku de nimishe. (5)

Pakshee pari          aakaasha re udibaara

                              mana chume 'ODISHAA' ra komalataa.(7)

Ajanaa raaije             ajanaa mulake
         sabu je ajanaa mote

         sabu nuaa dishe mote. (8)

                  Jarmaana bhaashaa re       odishaa ra khaadya
                              khoji baaku hue banaa

          dali hue 'Linsen'.(10)

                  Tushaara paataku         Ojana jinisha
                           naahin paakhe riksaa tie

                        raasta ghaata sapha sutara

                        shaanti ra prateeka mora.(13)

Note from the Author

Dear Friends,
It's my pleasure to invite you all for a traditional food in this summer. Hope, you all enjoy this elegant feast in our common oriya dining hall.


Atithi Geeshama        mo bhagna kutire
      Abhyarthanaa  mora ghena
Charana maarjana      karuchhi tumara
      Bhumishtha pranaama ghena         (1)


      Kokila ra kuhutaana
      Basanta ra madhu bana
      Baartaa baha saji tuma
      Sanketilaa  aagamana              (2)


Jatane sajaai      sneha sinchi sinchi
      Pakhaala mu parashuchhi
Kaatha chuli jaale    maati haandi pete
      Juee kadha phuti achhi            (3)


Mamataa ra sparse     heeraa khanda bhaate
      Chaakhande upare jala
Tahin tike 'juaa'    karichhi prastuta
      'Baasi' swaadistha pakhaala       (4)


Lovaneeya ranga    kamaneeya anga
      Sorisha re aaloo bhajaa
Raashi badi bhajaa    daanta paain khojaa
      Die khas khas majjaa              (5)


Baadi Leutiaa       shaaga ra kharadaa
      Podaa baaigana bhartaa
Rasuna chhunkaa ra       Aghraana re bharti
      Na sphure mana ra baartaa         (6)


Tatakaa maachha ra     bhajaa baa besare
      Bhaata gundaa dwigunita
Basaa dahi puni      maati ra palame
      'Saja' pakhaala paain ta          (7) 


Manda mahuliaa     torani ra baasnaa
      Khyudaa ku bardhita kare
Sajaa, kanchaa lankaa      lambila piaaja
      Eka saathe thaaliaa re            (8)


Teerjaka kirana    gaadhuaa bela ra
      bhaata belaa hue badhaa
Tuna tarakaree     ardha gola kari
      Sajaai deichhi pidhaa             (9)


Luna paani thuaa    aachaara ra saathe
      Baama haati aasana ra
Kharaa pithi kari   basantu atithi
      Bhunjantu mo naibedya ra          (10)
