Pu La Deshpande remembered

source: puladeshpande.netToday i remember my favourite marathi author P. L. Deshpande on his 6th death anniversary.

My humble contribution to his memory this year has been in the form of my work on a wikipedia page dedicated to him. I have also put together a small collection of his famous quotes at Wikiquotes - P. L. Deshpande. It is from here that i quote:

शेवटी काय हो, आपण पत्त्याच्या नावाचे धनी, मजकुराचा मालक निराळाच

Translation:In the end, all we own is the name on the address. Some else (God) is the owner of matter within.

For a person like me, sitting hundreds of kilometers from home, his works helps me remain connected with my roots and all that is marathi. My salute to the great soul!
