Received copy of my new book WARRIOR OF THE BORDER STRUGGLE, published by New Man Publication, Mumbai. It is a biography of Bapusaheb Patil Ekambekar trascreated by me into English from Marathi. Bapusaheb’s name and fame is an honor to the land of his birth as well as to the age in which he lived. His inspiring personality is well known in both Maharashtra and Karnataka. As a lone leader of the Marathi-speaking people in the border areas, he fought singularly for their betterment and set an example of high ethical living. I am sure that it will help readers to understand not only the life and work of Bapusaheb but also to cognize the border struggle and problems of affected people of 865 Marathi-speaking villages and towns, forcibly included into Karnataka. This can also be read as a typical English biography. Dr. J. M. Waghmare, the founder Vice-Chancellor of SRTM Universty, Nanded and Ex-Member of the Parliament, one of Bapusaheb’s close associates has written Foreword to this book. I hope, as my reader friends welcomed my earlier books, this book too will be welcomed and appreciated by you. Soon the book will be released officially in a grand function and will  also be available online for vast redership.

At my birthplace

Was at my birthplace in last week. A wonderful day. This is the old mansion built by my grandfather. Later inner renovations are made by my father. This is our birthplace. We all brothers took our primary education there only. We have got so many memories there with our Wada where we grew up and our village deity Papnash Temple. Our kids are very fond of it. Twice or trice in every year each of us visit it with all family members. Our frequencies are lesser but my father still stays there some period in the month to look after farm.
