WEEKEND THOUGHTS # 3

CHAKRA

Dear Orneteers,

Last weekend we read views of Manoranjan Satapathy on a very thought-provoking subject. This weekend we present the real Manoranjan Satapathy, a computer scientist by profession and aiming for a Ph.D. degree; but that's only the mundane part. The real Manoranjan Bhai is an Oriya poet by heart, his true God-given skill; a true genius of Oriya art and literature.

When asked for his self-introduction, all he said was he is finishing his Ph.D. from IIT, Bombay in Department of CSE. Recently he was a visiting research fellow at UN University at Macau.(for the inquisitive minds, Macau is a Portuguese colony near Hong Kong)

Following is one of Manoranjan Bhai's many creations. I hope you enjoy it and we promise you many more in future.

With regards,
