The brief life of Kuntala Kumari Sabat (1900 - 1938), a well-known Oriya social activist and poet, was crowded with tumultuous events. Born in a Christian family, she embraced Hinduism in the face of a belligerent social opposition. A converted Hindu, she later married an Arya-Samajist. Her life had been a 'web of a mingled yarn'. She had both idealism and pragmatism at the same time. She was charitable and compassionate and yet could be an uncompromising rebel. In her writings too, realism and idealism, romanticism and classicism contended with each other. In her poetry she sang of the country and the common flower, and brought into it the divine and the earthly. These enigmatic aspects of her life and creations made her a legendary personality in her life time itself.
