A humanist who reminded you of Thoreau

In this YouTube video, the writer, blogger and broadcaster Abdul Rasheed speaks on the wonderful humanism of K.P. Poornachandra Tejaswi, who passed away this afternoon.

In a throwback to Henry David Thoreau a la Walden, Tejaswi chose to live in the warm embrace of nature in Mudigere, and unlike most writers, loved pottering around with his car and motorcycle, cooked with relish, and never hesitated to get his hands dirty, dealing with farmers’ issues and the environment.
