Anant Pai's birth anniversary - 17th September

It will not be complete to understand the growth of Indian education system without acknowledging the contribution of Shri Anant Pai (Uncle Pai to children).
I was an avid reader of Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle comics. I was fortunate to participate in a quiz competition organised by him and win the first prize. He spoke to all the children between questions. He was against the 3 R of Indian education system. Reading,wRiting and aRithmetic. He was deeply interested in the growth of personality of children.
This is a day to remember not only Uncle Pai but also Tagore, S.Radhakrishnan, Vivekananda and all such known and unknown souls who reformed our society in ways obvious and not so obvious.
What do you have to say about Amar Chitra Katha, Tinkle ? And what about Partha? Is it still around?

It was unfortunate news that Aiyazuddin, son of Azhar died. Azhar must be broken by this.
Mohammad Azharuddin was the greatest Indian batsman. He should have played for some more years.
May the soul of Aiyazuddin rest in peace.
