Dream that's gonna stay as one

I don’t remember when I read ‘Karvalo’ for the first time, that was more than 11-12 years ago. After finishing the book, for the next week I was contending myself on the book whether it’s a fiction or a true story. Over next few years, I’ve read the same book countless number of time. Just that one book made me a fan of Poorna Chandra Tejaswi.

I liked the way of his writing style. Each and every book made me a great fan of him. PooChanTe was also an avid photographer, environmentalist and also a birdwatcher.

Alas, bad news came in the after noon that Poorna Chandra Tejaswi is no more. He died due to heart-attack in his residence in Moodigere. My long pending dream of meeting him Attracted by his writing and his other interests I wanted to meet him in person. That was one long pending dream/work. But its gonna stay as a dream 🙁

RIP, Sir. Its a huge loss to all Kannadigas and the Kannada literature

    I am still unable to return from the shock. I have never met him either. But it is like loosing a very dear, very good friend who was with me all the time.

    I can no longer check for Tejaswi’s latest book when I go to the bookshop. Depressing it is 🙁

    Many of us started reading PuChaTe with ‘Karvalo’..I wonder why?

    But the magical world he created sitting in his own world in Mudigere is unmatchable..

    Salute to the wizard !
