Obituary: O. N. V. Kurup (1931-2016)

Poet, lyricist, activist, and teacher extraordinaire, Sri. O. N. V. Kurup has died. Read Manorama’s obituary here. He was 84. ONV, as he was affectionately known to all, was my mother’s teacher. ONV also wrote lyrics for several Malayalam movies–thousands of songs. When I read that ONV had died, I sat down and recalled all the Malayalam songs that ONV wrote that I like. There are so many. Such wonderful songs. Thank you for your beautiful poems and songs.
