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). He is also credited for propagating the use of Devanagari lipi to write Kosli language.
A well wisher of Kosli language Mr. Sudhansu Khamari sent us following pictures of late Joshi. We thank Mr. Khamari for sending us these pictures.
