Great son of a Great father – K.P.Purna chandra Tejaswi. April 6, 2007Posted by nsworld in Books/Literature.
Writer, Photographer, Bird watcher, Agriculturist, Publisher and what else you can expect from a person, to call him Versatile, Dyanamic, Genius? All this and many more was KP Purna chandra Tejaswi son of `Rastra Kavi`Kuvempu.
A post graduate in Kannada literature, but opted to be an Agriculturist and preferred to lead a life in seclusion, and thus settled in his Moodigere coffee estate.(Chikmagalore dist.) Reflection of his surroundings and his day to day interaction with nature can be found in his literature.
Though he was living in a corner of the world, in his sprawling 25 acre estate `Niruttara` ,far away from the buzz of modern world, he was never closed to Modern ideas, Development, and Technology. His Millennium series is a testimony to this fact. A man of simplicity and a Socialist to the core.
Another interesting facet of his personality was that, he was a good cook also. This was revealed by his wife just a day before his sad demise, in an interview to Mysuru Akashavani (Programme : Navilugari).
Some interesting titles/observations made by media in honour of this great person.
