Basho's Trail

I came across Basho, the Haiku Master, through Osho's discourses and Sujatha's writings. Haiku describes the experience of a person at that moment (Whereas some are writing now just to follow the number of words it requires). I didn't know that Basho had travelled so much until I read this article from "National Geographic Magazine", Feb. edition.

Excellent photographs of Michael Yamashita adds beauty..

From writer S.Ramakrishnan,who wrote about him in his article " Kathaa Vilasam" in Ananda Vikatan.

When I heard Sujatha's demise last week, I had remembered his writings I came across through "Ananda vikatan". His writing style, so simple and beautiful, made me one of his numerous fans. I've read few of his short stories, science fictions, novels of which I loved his "Srirangathu Devathaigal". Right from Sangam literature to modern writings, he had discussed on so many topics. He had even played a part in the production of film on Bharathiyar, "Bharathi" by Gnanarajasekaran.His love and works for Tamil cannot be forgotten easily. He left a space that cannot be filled.
I cannot write more than the articles given below.
A tribute from writer S.Ramakrishnan.
