Saketh: We haven't forgetten

The Deccan article on Saketh Rajan's encounter death in Chikmagalur still hangs in my room. It's been hanging there for 2 years. Feb 06 will be his death anniversary. Believe you can still get his much respected volumes on the history of Karnataka - Making History (1&2). Mysore boy Saketh (Saki), grad from Maharaja's College, Mysore and a gold medallist from IIMC, had also jointly authored the book 'Newspaper in the Framework of Space: Mysore's Urban Press' right after graduation. He was responsible for exposing the Rare Earth Material Plant that was coming up near Mysore for the enrichment of Uranium without the knowledge of the area community.
Back when I had a blog called Isthmus of Ignatz, I had put this thing on his death. And then that post got crowded out by some other frivolous posts. So maybe it wasn't entirely clear how much I attached to him and his choices, and ofcourse all the people who continue to work as he did.

*Guys, you'll have to excuse me. I am going to be filling out this post very slowly, asmwen I have the energy and time. By the time of his anniversary I expect this too be as complete as it can get.
