Tejeshwar Singh

When I heard about Tejeshwar Singh's sudden death, being far from Delhi my only way to pay my last respects was on this blog (here) and by writing about him so that more people could read it. It appeared in The Pioneer today, do take a look.

Of course, the printer's devil had to be at work on this one and the word 'Have' at the very beginning of my write-up has arrived from nowhere! How TS would have frowned to see it.

This is SUCH a touching tribute || Experience you rightly attribute || That 'have' he's put in || With a small, sly grin || So he can enjoy whatever you refute!

Anamika said...

Dipali: Gosh. That was more than 29years ago!

Aunty G: Well said.

What makes your tribute different from dry obits is the very special affection with which you remember him . Very touching

Aunty G said...

'Tis the time for New Year wishes || Lots of love, hugs and kisses || May God bless you || And your family too || With mental and material riches!

wherever he is, i think he's still sitting at a desk and smoking and fretting over a book's flap matter or cost sheet...the last of his kind really.

thanks for mentioning my blog in an earlier post, and more so for your very flattering answer to orangejammies' query! (any idea who oragejammies is, by the way? :)

Eve's Lungs: Yeah, I guess we knew him differently through the work space.

Aunty G: Thanks for that sweet limreicking :)

Ankush: That's exactly how I ended my piece, imagining him hunched over his desk! And Orange Jammies is a fellow blogger. And I'm pretty certain the same 3 adjectives apply to her too :)
