OBITUARY – SRI R.NANJAPPA

Tamilandvedas.com and swamiinology.blogspot.com express their deepest condolences to the family of Sri R.Nanajappa. Mr R.Nanjappa passed away in Bengaluru on 14th of December, 2020. We were all saddened by his demise. He was a great contributor to our blogs. In addition to his long series on Sadguru Sri Tyagaraja , Hindi Film songs and Economics he was a regular commentator. His comments were positive and informative. His comments were compl’i’mentary and compl’e’mentary/supplementary.

We were encouraged to write on the subjects he complimented us. Comments like his were our fuel and proved that we are in the right direction.

Once we wrote to him that his comments themselves will form a voluminous book. Writing is not easy, that too, writing with positive comments is not that easy.

He was a voracious reader, good writer and a multilinguist. Started his life as a banker and finished his life as a writer. I would say he worked until his last breath. His last comments to our blogs posted a few days before his death. He was a lifelong student studying new books and new subjects and he was a teacher for us teaching us what we don’t know.

We all pray for his soul to reach the feet of God.

Om Shanti.
