Dr. Raj - A tribute

It has been a year since Dr. Raj left us all on that fateful day last year. But as with great men, he continues to live on, in the hearts and minds of every Kannadiga. He has immortalized himself through the innumerable good films he gave us, through the pure and pristine Kannada that he spoke in those films, through those evergreen melodies that he rendered that continues to enliven us. His humility despite his stardom is something that everyone of us can learn from. He truly was a great Kannadiga. Our salutations to thee, Dr. Raj! May this land be blessed with more souls like you!

Dr Raj was a truly great man. A consummate actor, a gifted singer; in fact, a true artiste. And an endearing personality too. Looking at him, you would always feel, 'Here is a good man.'

I never thought I would actually feel sad when he died(I mean, I had never met him or been associated with him in any way.). But I did, last year. It was strange. Shows how he had made a presence in all our hearts. He had become as ubiquitous and close to us as Bangalore/Karnataka itself. He is one of the people you expect always to be around, somewhere in the news. Some news about him should occasionally keep entering your ears; then you would feel everything was all right and normal. His death left the land poorer.

May his memory last as long as films are made and art is alive.

"May his memory last as long as films are made and art is alive" - I liked it.

ನಿಜ.. ರಾಜ್‍ಕುಮಾರ್ ನಟನನ್ನು ಮೀರಿದ, ಕಲಾವಿದನನ್ನು ಮೀರಿದ, ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿತ್ವವನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿದ್ದವರು.. ನಿಮ್ಮೆಲ್ಲರೊಡನೆ ನನ್ನದೂ ಒಂದು ನಮನ.. ರಾಜ್‍ರ 95% ಅಷ್ಟು ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಕೆಲವನ್ನು ಹುಡುಕುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಪಾರ್ವತಮ್ಮನವರು ಮನಸ್ಸು ಮಾಡಿ ಸಿ.ಡಿ.-ಗಳನ್ನು ಬಿತ್ತರಿಸಿದರೆ.... :-)

[ಅರ್ಜುನ್] ರಾಜ್ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಎಷ್ಟು ಹೇಳಿದರೂ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪವೇ, ಏನು ಹೇಳಿದರೂ ಅಲ್ಪವೇ.. ಅಲ್ಲವೇ??
