Odisha is culturally among the richest states of India and it has always been at the forefront of iconic works of Indian literature which we are promoting through this endeavor.

From Jaydev’s Gita Govinda, to Sarala Das’ Mahabharata, to the path-breaking works of poets such as Sitakant Mahapatra and Ramakanta Rath, and fiction writers such as Prativa Ray in the modern era, Odisha is famed for its literary heritage.

It is to celebrate this immense richness that the Tata Steel Bhubaneswar Literary Meet (TSBLM) was launched in 2016.
