In the past few days, two legendary men passed away: Sir V S Naipaul and Shree Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Many of V S Naipaul's writings gave a snapshot account of issues involved in immigrant communities, particularly those of Indian origin in Trindidad. 'A House for Mr Biswas' for which the acclaimed won the Nobel Prize, was not only a novel but also somewhat like a lesson to many youngsters who struggled to handle problems involving immigrant communities from traditions point of view.
Mr Vajpayee's popularity stemmed from his simplicity and honesty. I think that the the time period when he served as Foreign Minister in the cabinet of Shree P V Narasimha Rao (another honest politician) will be remembered by all patriotic Indians.
I think that these men will be remembered by numerous people for years to come.
