Manoj Das

Manoj Das (b. 1934) is a multi-award winner in Oriya and English and has been teaching English at Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry. Talking about his works, distinguished English master, Graham Greene once observed: “I have read the stories of Manoj Das with great pleasure. He will certainly take a place on my shelves besides Narayan. I imagine Orissa is far from Malgudi, but there is the same quality in his stories with perhaps an added mystery.”
