Aug 6 - Prof Sachidananda Mohanty appointed Vice Chancellor of CUO

It gives Muse India great pleasure to share that Professor Sachidananda Mohanty, our Contributing Editor for Odia literature, has been appointed Vice Chancellor of the Central University of Orissa, Koraput.  

A distinguished scholar of English and Odia, he has several national and international awards and laurels to his credit. Author of 26 books in English and Odia, he has travelled widely and has given lectures at major universities in USA and Australia. His articles have appeared in leading Indian newspapers and several international journals of repute.

Professor Mohanty has had a very illustrious teaching career at the Central University of Hyderabad where he is Professor of English, and was earlier the head of department of English. His appointment as the Vice Chancellor of CUO is a fitting recognition of his erudition and significant contributions to English and Odia literatures.

We in Muse India are particularly thrilled at this development and wish Professor Mohanty the very best in his new assignment.
