Biography

 

A professor by profession and a writer by choice, Pratibha Ray undoubtedly is a household name in Odisha and in most parts of India through her translated works. She is one of the leading fiction writers in India today. It has been a long journey for Pratibha from the obscure lanes of her village to the secure place she enjoys in the hearts of her avid readers. As a committed academician she has been involved in active research. Her boldness, courage and commitment to work with the savage and aggressive Bonda tribe was commendable at a time (1985) when even a male researcher shied away from working with them. Pratibha’s voice is a self-searching one, in the quest of true identity.
