Bhubaneswar : The present historical and archaeological evidence do not suggest that the Kalinga War and the massacre that followed had taken place in Odisha, said Daya Dissanayake , a Sri Lankan writer and author of the book called “Who is Ashoka?”.
Participating in the monthly Kalinga Literary Festival Corner event here, the writer said since many of the historical facts were interpreted by British and European scholars, these are self- contradictory and do not represent the whole truth.
For example ,he pointed out that the rock edict at Daya River in Odisha does not mention about Kalinga War.
The KLF Corner intends to popularise literary personalities and literature on regular basis in the state.
