One of my favourite columnists Nirmal Shekar is no more.
What a writer! His writing not just covered the sports arena, but the entire life itself. He was more of a sports philosopher.
He was a big fan of Sachin and Federer -the two players i admired most.
More about him: Nirmal Shekar, former Sports Editor of The Hindu, passes away.
It is really sad that he joins Peter Roebuck,the great cricket writer, who died a few years ago. I was a big fan of their writing sytle!
