RIP Girish Karnad

RIP #GirishKarnad


A hallowed name in my house growing up. It wasn't until later that I became aware of the heights of his achievements in the non-Bollywood world. Playwright. Director. Activist. Rhodes. Padma Shri. Etc. A massive loss. What an incredible legacy he leaves behind.
