Translation of essay on Kabisurya Baladeba Ratha

Another new translation posted -- the short essay "Kabisurya Rayaguru" by Tarinicarana Ratha on the poet better known as Kabisurya Baladeba Ratha. This is probably the earliest essay published on the poet, having appeared around 1915 in the journal Utkala Sahitya. The essay includes the "Ga" song from Kisoracandrananda Campu and four verses from the kavya Candrakala; both are translated here, and this may be the first time any part of Candrakala has been translated into English.
