“Aspasta Iswara” (Publisher- Orissa Sahitya Acadamy which won State Youth Award )-2002, PAGE-104, RUPEES-60,50 POEMS

Aspashta Ishwara (Indistinct God), 2002. In this collection, brought out by Odisha Sahitya Academi, the poet consolidates as a serious poet who is both unmindful of and detached to the playfulness her youth demands of her. The collection betrays the same mellowness of the poet in acknowledging the realities of depravity and deprivation in the here-and-now and in the terrain beyond: the social and political evils of mankind like terrorism, dowry-death, transgression in governance, exploitation, rape, female feticide... The collection carries a few poems that mourn the fading basis of spiritualism in mankind. Obviously, the poet looks upon the tenacity of the Hindu way of life and its value system as a liberating agent of the pervading gloom. Some of the pieces experiment with simplicity and lyricism in structure.

ଅନ୍ତର୍ନିହିତ ସୁଦ୍ଧା କବିପ୍ରାଣର ଆତୁର କାମନା ଓ ପ୍ରାର୍ଥନାର କବିତା ସଂକଳନ ହେଉଛି ଅସ୍ପଷ୍ଟ ଇଶ୍ଵର । ମିଥ୍ୟା ଆଡମ୍ବରର ଅପସୃୟମାନ ଇଲାକା ରେ ଧନ୍ଦି ହେଉଛି ଆଧୁନିକ ମଣିଷ। ଫଳରେ ଅନ୍ତ:କରଣରୁ ତାର ଧୀରେଧିରେ ଅପସରି ଯାଉଛି ଈଶ୍ବରୀୟ ସତ୍ୟଟି । କବିତାଗୁଡିକରେ ରହିଛି ଗୀତିମୟ ଲଲିତ ମାଧୁର୍ଯ । କବିତାଗୁଡିକ ଭାବୋଦ୍ଦୀପକ ଆଉ ଖୁବ ବେଶୀ ଅନ୍ତରଙ୍ଗ । ଏଠି ଶବ୍ଦର ଭବପ୍ରକଟଠାରୁ ତତୋଧିକ ନିଶବ୍ଦ ଭାବ ସଂଗୁପ୍ତ।
