Mahapatra was born on August 3, 1935 in the Odisha village of Kotasahi, in the Jaleswar district. During his literary career, Mahapatra has maintained a journalism vocation. He routinely contributed to publications in Odia, including The Samaja, Sambad, Samaya, and The Pragativadi. His journalistic writings have been collected in three books.
Despite producing a large amount of literature, Mahapatra is more renowned for his work as a literary event coordinator and literary society administrator. He served as vice president of the Odisha Research Circle and as president of the Odisha Culture Academy. He served as the Madras Utkal Association’s first general secretary.
English, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, Assamese, Kannada, Bengali, Malayalam, and Rajasthani are just a few of the languages into which Mahapatra’s short stories have been translated.
