Gangadhar Gadgil passes away

We lost Gangadhar Gadgil (85), one of the doyens of Marathi Literature on 14th Sept 2008. He enriched Marathi Culture with his short stories, novels and plays. His autobiographical work “Eka Mungiche Mahabharat” won him the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1996. He was professor of Economics at Sydenham College and then went on to become the founder principal of NM College.

Salute to a man who wore many hats with equal ease… Literary Giant… Academician… Economist!
