White Whispers is an attempt to bring to limelight the hidden, unexplored richness and sophistication of a 17th century Oriya devotional poet whose intense piety coupled with the metaphoric interiority of the medium creates a unique kind of poetic art in the history of Oriya Literature.
As we move into a new and perhaps more intricate century of uncertainties, rootlessness and a feeling of vacancy, Salabega's poetry would certainly help men and women row them across the troubled waters to the safety of shore and enable them to breathe in bliss and dream in wonder, listening to the white whispers of love where tiger and rose, fire and water are one and the same.
The Translator Niranjan Mohanty writes poems in English and Oriya. He also translates from Oriya and Bengali into English.
