Yesterday it was an another shocking day for Kannadiga’s when they heard about the death of Saahasa Simha Dr. Vishnuvardhan. An another great actor ends his journey of life and fills in sorrow in the hearts of his fans across Karnataka.

Though I was bit hesitant to be on road, went out to see if I could get a glimpse of the star hero. While driving towards Basavanagudi, I was humming many of his movie songs being played on various FM channels. Recalled my childhood days where in I used to watch “ChitrageethegaLu (Flim Songs)” on every Friday evenings at 7pm on DD-1 Chandana and used to wait for songs from “Nagarahavu“, Bandana, Muttina haara and few other favorites of Vishnu.I have many of his movies on TV long long ago but still those dialogues etc ring in my ears and in last two years have seen some of his new movies in theater (Mathad Mathad Mallige is one which I liked much recently).

From the Movie Nagarahaavu, Directed by Puttanna Kanagal

Pala captures the day through his cam and I tried capturing some with my HTC though.. Here is a link for Pala’s album

Picture by Pala: Protest? against what?

I didn’t find it quite possible to get near by and my self and pala have been lucky to get away from the place where in the mob had burnt vehicles etc yesterday evening. People climbing buildings to through the long running queues and authorities pushing the men away to control the crowd and that recalls what had happened when Dr. Rajkumar passed away and everything came to stand still. Please people stay put from such activities atleast while we pay our last tributes to our own stars. This is not the way to end an year and not the way to say good bye to your hero.

Rest in peace Vishnu…
