I harbour a wish that the path to death would not be defiled or unclean for one who tries to tread a clean path in life. However, I respect the reality, and am grateful that there's no time left to fear, and shiver about, such things. There was a time when I was not here on earth, and there'll again be a time in future, when I am not on this planet." This excerpt is from a personal letter addressed to M T Vasudevan Nair by Akkitham Achuthan Nampoothiri, renowned Malayalam Poet who passed away on October 15, 2020. Poets can condense their thoughts into capsules which can be stored for future generations or shared with like-minded people who follow their thoughts (Sugathakumari called them "Samaana-Hrudaya" and said, she was singing for such audience). Need proof? Remember the Poetry classes, any language, and tell me how long the teacher took to explain one stanza of the poem you still remember. Compare this to the History class, where the Professor travelled through centuries in one hour. Back to Akkitham. The poet was awarded Gnanapeedham Puraskar recently. He has penned poems with thunderous calls for social reforms and poems touching the hearts with the softness of the drop of dew on the lotus petal or the peacock feather. He belonged to the category of Poets who spoke out their minds without worrying about the consequences. A species facing extinction. May his tribe survive the current trust crisis the world is going through. We can only pray, future generations get inspired and follow the righteous path of living the poet talked about till his last breath. *Blog Post @ WarriersViews, ToI, pending publication.
