Sad loss for the Malayalam Literary world

Prof. Guptan Nair

M Krishnan Nair

One of the best literary critics and who opened the doors of world literature to Malayalees M.Krishnan Nair passed away. His sharp and sometimes acerbic tongue that used to enliven the malayalam literary world would be greatly missed. This comes just around a week after another eminent Malayalam literary critic and educationist Prof. Guptan Nair's death. As I remember their writings in Bashaposhini and Kalakaumudhi and host of other Malayalam Magazines, Prof.Guptan Nair was through, sensitive and infused depth into his work while M Krishnan Nair was more popular with his pungent comments and used precision and brevity in his almost addictive colums. Indeed a great loss to the Malayalam Literary world.
