I offer my homage to my favourite marathi authors, P. L. Deshpande. Today, its been exactly 5 years since he passed away. His character 'Chitale Master' remains my favourite to date.
For a person like me, sitting hundreds of kilometers from home, his works help me remain in touch with my roots and my mother tongue marathi.
Visit his site for more details. Here's a collage of who said what on this day.
