RIP: Prof Suryanath Kamath

One is only beginning to realise the contribution of some superb scholars in India whose works are largely unknown.

One such scholar was Prof. Suryanath Kamath (surprised to find his wiki page) whose work on history of Karnataka is exceptional. He was the tour de force behind Karnataka Gazetteers.

He just passed away recently. May his soul rest in peace.
