RNJ 5 Year Anniversary

It’s been 5 years since my father passed away (May 19th, 2008).

And I still haven’t found the guts to mourn his death.

I still pretend sometimes like he’s there back home in India, and that I just haven’t spoken to him in a long time. Maybe we’re not on talking terms or something.

Here’s a picture from one of the few movies he acted in, where he was the “Villain” (I am sure you wouldn’t have guessed otherwise ;-)

He never smoked anything of any kind his entire life. So it was funny when he first showed me this photo, where he has a smoking pipe in his mouth. He knew enough to huff-and-puff a few times when the yelled “Action”, but I’m pretty sure he washed his mouth 20 times after the scene was over :-)

  1. I came across this blog because I wanted to know how my old school Principal was doing. I am very saddened to hear that Mr. and Mrs. Jayagopal passed away. I was a student at V.V.V in the 90s when Lalita ma’am used to teach Kannada for us. She and Mr. Jayagopal used to take us to Radio and TV stations in Chennai to perform skits in Kannada. I even acted in a Kannada television serial shot in the premises of V.V.V school, thanks to them. Those were really memorable days.
