ମୃଗତୃଷ୍ଣା Mrigatrishna by କୃଷ୍ଣ ପ୍ରସାଦ ମିଶ୍ର Krishna Prasad Mishra.
Mrigatrishna apparently means “mirage” in Hindi, so it might be safe to assume it’s the same in Odia. But I feel nearly helpless now that Google Translate no longer supports Odia! That was the best and easiest tool for typing and getting a basic idea for transliteration and translation. Darn!
Anyway, just look at this gorgeous illustration! What a lovely little chital! The lettering also seems to have the same feeling – the sharp, tapered verticals and the whimsical curls. I absolutely adore this one!
