K P Poornachandra Tejaswi is dead

Posted on: ಏಪ್ರಿಲ್ 5, 2007


 I have a very bad news to share with you today. Kannada’s one of the best contemporary writers and son of KuVemPu, Poornachandra Tejaswi is no more. He was 70 when he breathed last, today, a few hours ago.

Mukthabalaga mourns the demise of this great man.

Brief note about him :

He was born in Kuppalli in Thirthahalli taluk of Shimoga district. Although he is the son of “Rashtrakavi” Kuvempu, he came out of his father’s shadow and established his own image at an early age.

He spent most of his days in the company of the beautiful western ghats at Mudigere, which provided the back drop for his works.

His novels :

  • Mayaloka
  • Rudraprayagada Bhayanaka Narabakshaka
  • Chidambara Rahasya
  • Karvalo
  • Annana Nenapu
  • Jugari Cross
  • Swaroopa
  • Nigooda Manushyaru
  • Although his novels are widely popular, his fame is due to variety in his works. poems, short stories, dramas, travelogues, science fictions, incidents related to nature.

    Western ghat’s beauty has been captured alive throught his works.

    We salute and bid adieu to this man of nature thru this small post. Good bye Mr. Tejaswi. RIP.

    ಪೂಚಂತೇಯವರ ಮೊದಲ ಪುಸ್ತಕ ನಾನು ಓದಿದ್ದು “ಕರ್ವಲೋ”. ಆಗ ನಾನಿನ್ನೂ ಚಿಕ್ಕ ಹುಡುಗ, ಐದ್ನೇ ಕ್ಲಾಸಲ್ಲಿದ್ದೆ. …

    His book annana nenapu is just excellent. I keep reading it every now & then, that made him my favoourite author.. he was a great personality overall

    Tejaswi was a great source of inspiration for thousands of youngsters all over the state. His books Karvalo, Chidambara rahasya, Maayaloka, Jugari cross and Millenium series are immortal.

    ಬೆಟ್ಟ ಗುಡ್ಡಗಳ ನಡುವಲ್ಲಿ
    ನದಿ ತೊರೆಗಳ ಜೊತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ
    ದಟ್ಟ ಕಾನನದ ಮರೆಯಲ್ಲಿ
    ಹಕ್ಕಿ ಪಕ್ಷಿಗಳ ಧ್ವನಿಯಲ್ಲಿ
    ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಮರೆಯಾದಿರಿ ತೇಜಸ್ವಿ

    ನಿಮ್ಮದೊಂದು ಉತ್ತರ
