I started the day with shock and disbelief, hearing the sad news of the demise of my good friend and a great Tamil Theatre Artist, Ananda Kannan.
I always admired his passion towards Language, Theatre and Arts and mournfully remember the several projects he did for us at Pek Kio CC IAEC and Singai Tamil Sangam.
In fact, our detailed preparation for a novel program named “நேற்று, இன்று, நாளை” [Yesterday, Today, and tomorrow] planned to be staged as part of Tamil Language Festival 2020 for “Singai Tamil Sangam”, was his idea, but could not materialise due to Covid19. That would have been innovative on the local stage scenario, but now his dreams remains unfulfilled.
Meetings and discussions with him on our community projects will motivate everyone around him.
His enthusiasm and positive energies are always contagious, especially while sharing his dreams and visions for Tamil.
Those wonderful moments are still lingering in my mind and the memories will never be forgotten.
I personally would miss Ananda Kannan and his charismatic presence in our events.
Prayers for his peaceful eternal Journey. OM NAMA SHIVAYA
