Baradwaj Rangan, a writer par excellence

I don’t know how I landed on his blog. Maybe, as is my wont, I was searching for articles on Sir MV, Mathematics, Food, Srinivasa Ramanujan, Kamal Hassan….Ilayaraja…. and that might have taken me to an article in The Hindu. And from there, I might have found my way to his blog. Ever since, I have frequented the place and enjoyed every piece written by Baradwaj Rangan who likes to be called a Film Analyst. But I can say he is much more than that, having read his articles for over 4 years now.

His writings are intelligent, witty and thought provoking. Everytime I visit his blog, it has enriched my knowledge about movies and writing.

Apart from his writings, not-to-be missed on his blog is the Comments section! His readers are widely-read and passionate about many things, especially films.

I drew the above cartoon on the spur of the moment yesterday and mailed it to him. He was generous enough to post it on his blog (Looney toons). Thank you Mr. Rangan for feeding us excellent food for thought!
