Kanha or Kanhapadorkanhupa was one of the poets of Charjapad, the earliest known example of AssameseOdia and Bengali literature. He was a tantric buddhist and his poems in Charjyapad are written in a code, whereby every poem has a descriptive or narrative surface meaning but also encodes tantric buddhist teachings. Some experts believe this was to conceal sacred knowledge from the uninitiated, while others hold that it was to avoid religious persecution.

In one of his poem,Kanhupa wrote:

Your hut stands outside the city

Oh, untouchable maid

The bald Brahmin passes sneaking close by

Oh, my maid, I would make you my companion

The language of Kanhupa’s poetry bears a very strong resemblance to modern Oriya. For example, :

Ekaso padumo chowshathi pakhudi

Tahin chadhi nachao dombi bapudi

Padumo (Padma:Lotus), Chaushathi (64), Pakhudi (petals) Tahin (there), Chadhi (climb/rise), nachao (to dance), Dombi (an Oriya female belonging to scheduled caste), Bapudi ( a very colloquial Oriya language to apply as ‘poor fellow’ )

Kanha is also a leading contemporary Bengali magazine of poetry and poetry-related essays named after the Charjapad poet.

Ekaso padumo chowshathi pakhudi
