A great man. A gentle soul.The only regret I have even today was that he was not sent off with the dignity that befits his greatness...
Somehow I too was reminded of the last minute frustration of the family last year when they couldn't have a peaceful darshana of their Raj.Raj-- A man who has unknowingly united kannadigaas and created a sense of nammatana.
I m glad this time there were o untoward incidences ...I was not a fan of his , until i watched his movies , like Sri krishna Devaraaya, Bhabruvaahaa ..etc.. Great movies !
For all those who dont like Dr.Rajkumar,Here is the must see list..1. Bhaktha Kumbhara2. Bhagyavantharu 3. Kaviratna KaLidasa4. Babruvahana5. Kanakadasa6. Mannina Maga7. Sanadi Appanna8. Sandhya Ragamany more.....
I don't quite agree that Dr. Rajkumar was "a model Kannada activist". If anything, he belonged to the whole of India and Karnataka.Here was a man who regaled audiences of all hues — cutting across religious, cultural, age and other differences. He united us all in a manner no politician worth his salt could ever imagine; and yet, he was a private person, choosing to shy away from the media glare and staying away from controversy.It is not fair to compartmentalise a towering person as him.
He was my favourite actor. I dont know how many times I must have watched Swarna Gowri, Lagna patrike, Kasturi Nivasa and Bhaktha Kanaka dasa.
Hmmmm Anand, point taken!!astroshiva, Welcome here. Yes, I whole heartedly agree with you about Annavru!
