The only Kannada book I have read till date was written by this affable author.
The book in question is Parisarada Kathe (Story of Nature).
Poornachandra Tejaswi was the son of the Kannada literary giant, Kuvempu, who passed away a while ago. Under such a legacy, he managed to carve out a place for himself while writing and working for environmental issues, amongst others.
May his soul rest in peace, if only for the immense pleasure I derived from reading the book.
