Late Pandit Prayag Dutt Joshi of Khariar, Nuapada district is a house-hold name in western Odisha. He is credited for propagating the “Kosli language movement”. A master in Sanskrit, Kosli and other Indian languages late Joshi wrote a book “Kosli Bhasar Sankhipt  Parichay” (An brief Introduction to Kosli language).
