FRIENDS OF FAKIR MOHAN FOUNDATION

VYASA KAVI FAKIR MOHAN SENAPATI (1843-1918)
A giant in the field of Indian literature, who belonged to Odisha, Fakir Mohan Senapati created a revolution in novel writing by departing from the romantic idiom and writing social realism. His writing had elements which apart from promoting secular attitudes, helped bring about social changes, to which he also contributed directly as the dewan of some of the princely states of Odisha, in British India. Odisha is the first state in India to have been established on the basis of its language, for which he laid the groundstone. He in fact fought against various odds to save the language from extinction, and is hailed as the father of Modern Odiya literature. Fakirmohan’s writing speaks to us today with the same urgency and freshness as when he set down his words with a quill pen over a century ago. Fakir Mohan Senapati can, in the truest sense, be dubbed as the Renaissance man.
Fakir Mohan Foundation (FMF) proposes to carry out its work under three categories or wings viz: Language, Culture & Heritage, Socio-Economic Development and Education for Empowerment. The issue of language is uppermost on the FMF agenda. This finds elaboration on the website and the souvenir released in Jan 2012. Website: www.fakirmohanfoundation.com
