Memorable pic of Chandrakant Baxi: Presented by ilaxi
Pic courtesy : Scanned from copy of Bhaskar city, 23rd Jan 2006.
What interested me most is that apart from writing 185 Books, Chandrakant Baxi wrote 18 poems. He thought it to be a great art form. Quite surprising but harsh truth that on his death, even the Guj CM Narendrabhai Modi spoke great words for him but unfortunately, Gujarat had no consideration for him. He became the Sheriff of Bombay and his fans gave him ample love. He felt hurt that Gujarat did not give him anything....Interestingly, his articles 'Vintage Wine, Starter, Cocktail and Bottoms Up' had interesting captions but not on hard drinks or wine...whatsoever.
His memories, we all would cherish for all times to come. Gujarati Literature need to be kept alive and it's real need of hour that Gujarat Leaders takes some action otherwise, its so sad, we are losing our all old literature people and Gujarati Sahitya world would fade...
