Sarala Dasa (brought into the world as Siddheswara Parida) was a fifteenth century writer and researcher of Odia writing. Most popular for three Odia books — Mahabharata, Vilanka Ramayana and Chandi Purana — he was the first researcher to write in Quite a while and his loved as the Adi Kabi (First Artist) of Odia writing. As an originator of Odia writing, his work has framed a persevering through wellspring of data for succeeding ages.

He was brought into the world at a town called kanakavati patana known as Kanakapura at the Tentuliapada, Jagatsinghpur locale.
Sarala Dasa had no coordinated early training, and what he accomplished through self-instruction was credited to the beauty of Sarala, goddess of dedication and motivation. However his initial name was Siddheswara Parida, he was subsequently known as Sarala Dasa, or 'by the aid of Sarala'. (The title Dasa implies a slave or a worker of a specific god or goddess. A not insignificant rundown of writers, going before and succeeding Sarala Dasa, have names finishing along these lines. For instance: Vatra Dasa, Markanda Dasa, Sarala Dasa, Jagannatha Dasa, Balarama Dasa, and Yasovanta Dasa.)
