Satyanarayan Bohidar, Koshli dictionary and Koshli grammer

Following are some information from the Sambalpur District web page  and Orissa Review:

  • Known as the pioneer of Sambalpuri language and grammer, Satya Narayan Bohidar was born on 1st August, 1913 at Sonepur. His formative and creative years were spent in Sambalpur that produced a good no. of literary translations and biographies. Fighting against all odds, Sri Bohidar was successful in preparing the dictionary and  grammer specially in Sambalpuri Language which provided a significant identity to it. Satya Narayan Bohidar died on 31st December, 1980, leaving a great legacy behind him to influence the future generations.
  • Satyanarayan Bohidar was a poet with a difference. Author of ” Kosali Bhasakosh”, his works namely Tik Chahnra (1975). Ghavghavo, Ghuvkudu etc. are written in Kosali or Sambalpuri language. The ease and facility with which Bohidar weaves the local idioms into the tapestry of his poetry is indeed amazing.
