Tejaswi – an inspiration

The news of Poornachandra Tejaswi’s demise hit me so hard that it took a lot of time for me to digest the news and accept it. Spending more than an hour reading through several pages of memories of Tejaswi in Vijaya Karnataka and Udayavani today, I re-lived, in a depressing mood, the magical world of nature and birds created by his books that elicited fascination

Tejaswi is no more with us but his works on nature, birds and literature, and his eye of fascination towards everything will continue to remain an inspiration for us. May his soul rest in peace.

    Yes, he is the all time best selling author of Kannada. My favorite author. Some people compare him to Hemmingway, but for me he is more than that and he is a unique peronality. A best selling writer, painter (i think he is the first one to exhibit computer paint brush paintings in India), ornithologist, photographer, naturalist, ever experimenting farmer/coffee planter, thinker, philosopher (who loved drinking coca cola), cook (whose expertise in chicken biryani and though no complaints about taste, people who have seen him cooking have expressed apprehensions to eat his preparations; he’s leat bothered about hygiene n known to put whole bunch of unwashed coriender leaves into cooker) and what not. He always stayed away from lime light but daringly said whatever right to him. it’s unfortunate that he passed away before the realization of ‘KUVEMPU’ – the Kannada software he’s trying to develop. It is a huge loss to entire kannada world. I never come accross an author in any language, so beautifully explaining the mundane little things, birds, science, forest, wildlife, anything and everything. I keep reading his Mellenium Book series, Parisarada kathegalu, his books on Jim Corbett, Africa, Nyle, Minchully (birds) year after year and I cannot forget Carvalho, Mandanna, Kiwi…….
