Dinakrushna Das (c. seventeenth century), was a medieval poet of Orissa and is fondly remembered for his Rasokallola. His songs are sung by the peasants all over Orissa and many of his lines have passed into proverbs. A judicious mixture of Sanskrit and Oriya makes his verse extremely elegant and picturesque.
Surendra Mohanty (b. 1922) is an eminent Oriya writer and is the recipient of a number of literary awards, including the Sahitya Akademi Award. He has written this monograph mainly for the benefit of the non-Oriya reader, who is not much acquainted with Dinakrushna Das.
