About The Author

Nani Manna

General

Orissa ,  INDIA

I started my career as a teacher, became a banker & after taking voluntary retirement practiced in the Bar as an advocate. Writing is my passion & I began writing when I was in class nine. Several of my poems, short stories & articles in Odia have been published in newspapers & magazines in Odisha. Now I am writing the biography of my teacher, Sri Bhikhari Charan Sahu. I have also translated four Hindi novels & one Bengali novel into Odia. Translating Ayn Rand's Fountain Head into Odia is my pet project. Besides writing, I love reading & listening to ghazals, Bengali songs by Manna Dey, Bhupen Hazarika & Chitra Singh, old Hindi film songs & soulful bhajans in Odia.

I also love to do social service. During my short stay for a few years in New Delhi, I associated myself with Lead India Movement & Teach India Movement sponsored by Times Of India. As a volunteer teacher, I taught slum children for two years at Okhla Mandi, New Delhi. I was adjudged as one of the best bloggers of itimes, a portal of Times of India in 2010.

I am a learner & I love to learn from anybody irrespective of his age, gender or social status. I am a lover of nature & every aspect of nature fascinates me. I consider God as my friend, philosopher & guide and see His doings in everything that happens around me or concerns me in any way. I believe in "Thy Will Be Done".
