The nature poet Gangadhar Meher is one of the rarest gems of Oriya literature. He used to help his father by weaving the clothes but somewhere in the mean time he learned to weave the words much beautifully than the clothes. Though he has studied only up to 5th class, today a collage has been named to his honor. The prakruti kavi breathe his last breath at the age of 62. Here is a brief profile of the Oriya Swabhaba Kavi, Gangadhar Meher.
