Good Bye Mr KG Maheshwariji ,,You Were In A Greater Hurry Than Me

These are pictures shot  as symbolic salute to a great painter of Light .And these pictures I shot for those followers lovers admirers of Mr KG Maheshwari who are not aware of the passing of a great legend ,, and sadly my country India remembers them only after they have passed away never to return.

End Of A Long Journey Mr KG Maheshwari RIP 1922 - 2014

Great humble photographer Mr KG Maheshwariji passed away last night at his house in Mumbai.
I was informed of his sad demise by good friend Mr KJothady.
I reconfirmed the same from his family and shall be going to his funeral from Napean Sea Road today at 3 pm.

I had not met Mahehwariji since many years but we kept in touch via phone ,, his failing health  was the key cause that kept him away from the Intenet too. Maheshwariji in his nineties was a passionate blogger and a friendly soul.

I offer my condolences to his family his wife the backbone of his long journey Kamal Babu Kartike and his immediate family .
Om Shanti Om, May His Soul Rest in Peace ..
