Since the launch of the Prakalpana Movement through Swatotsarwhich published the writings in the new form of Prakalpana only, Vattacharja Chandan had been feeling the the urgent need to propel a new kind of poetry which he called Sarbangin Poetry(= wholesome poetry), that would aptly exploit the possibilities of various kinds of visual signs, symbols and pictures in the appropriate parts of a poetry, and yet would not be solely a poetry of concrete designs, patterns or structures; as it would mainly bank on the basic features, instincts and values of poetry in texts and textures merged in anew rhythm. This new rhythm which he later termed as Flow Verse would not be simply the usual free verse, but like the natural flowing rhythm of life in harmony and disharmony, in concord and discord, and like the poetic + prosaic rhythm of life by rhyming + in the unrhyming sectors of awholesome Sarbangin Poetry as per the individual preference and prudence of the independent poet as a creator of the new age.

Accordingly to fulfill his dream of kOBISENa (= troop of poets or Poetroop), it was announced in an open convention of poets at Vidyasagar Hall in Kolkata in 1972 to float a new publication "Of poetry By poetry and For poetry", named kOBISENa.
