Putting a Face to Kamat's Stories

Kamat's Potpourri is a non-fiction website, meaning our stories and pictures are real. They might be skewed due to personal limitations and prejudices of the creators, but all our contents and stories have real people behind them.

For example, the man in a western suit, yet wearing a traditional turban, is M.V.Gopalaswamy, who started Mysore Radio Station. The woman churning butter-milk in now-and-then is my grandmother. The man in Gandian clothing is K.M.Kamat, a prominent lawyer of North Kanara. The head being shaven in Going, going.. is my own, and the two curious boys are me and my cousin Pradeep, soon after his munji.

Picture of Sukhdev Rajamestry

For those who have read dad's books on Madhya Pradesh and Bastar, the character of Sukhdev Rajamestri is very familiar. He is both a tailor and a carpenter in the village of Chotedongar, and knew many trails in the dense forests. He first-hand knowledge of the local people and customs helped Kamat to study and understand the complex intricacies of the tribal culture of Bastar.

Guess what I found today! A portrait of Sukhdev Rajamestri!
