| Here are some snapshots of Friends of Kamat meetup in Bengaluru and Dharwad.|
If you can read Kannada, Malli has a better report and better pictures.
Somehow our family guest-book became a point of discussion as soon as I asked the friends to sign-in, and continued till the end.
I was very happy to see Kannada writer Nemichandra making time to come see us, and we shared some of Bappa's anthropological illustrations with the friends.
While browsing through the guest-book, others recognized many famous names. Malli, who is an avid autograph collector took many pictures. Going through the old entries also brought some fond memories of lost friends.
Hand-writings of some of the dearest friends of Kamat. I have written about D.K. Murthy. Nakul Redkar was my father's childhood friend.
I also met lots of other friends (not just website friends). It was wonderful. I think friends are gifts from God.
Prior to my visit, there was a discussion on Dharwad Pedhas on our mailing list, and our friends made good on the offer to feed us the specialty delicacy.
I met my father's roommate V.K. Deshpande (see his article: History of Kamat.com) and Suresh Kulakarni who took the famous photo of my father.
