Oriyan playwright Gopal Chhotray writes plays. He was born in Orissa state in 1916. He is recognised as the innovator who introduced the Geetinatya, or “plays in verses,” genre to Orissan drama. His plays helped revive interest in Orissan performing arts in the late 1940s.
In Indian theatrical heritage, he is regarded as a notable theatre personality. Sahadarmini, Panchanatika, Na Pahu Rati, Kapatapasha, Hasyarasara nataka, and Babu Candramani are some of his best-known works.
He created more than 500 radio plays, including musicals and features, and made it commonplace for people to listen to his works. Among the earliest chain-play the AIR produced was his monthly serial “Purapuri Paribarika” (Entirely A Family Affair), which ran continuously for three years.
