Plan for a new website on ‘Chandrabhaga’ (Founded by Jayanta Mahapatra)

Few days back I had sent an email to Rabindra Swain , notable poet and a close friend to India’s living legend poet Jayanta Mahapatra asking him for a permission to create a web site on Chandrabhaga — the poetry magazine from cuttack edited by Jayanta Mahapatra and Rabindra. Before the new year arrives, the mail from  Rabindra brought me a good news that I can now proceed with the proposal. Hope this new year will bring more poetic way of living our lives.
