Condolence Message on the Passing Away of ONV Kurup from General Secretary, Sitaram Yecury
I am deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of ONV Kurup.
ONV, was part of the progressive and Left movement in Kerala and wrote some of the most remembered poems and film lyrics. His association with the KPAC and the penning of several songs for it made some its plays memorable. His lyrics contributed in no small measure in popularizing the message of the progressive movement in Kerala.
His death has left a deep void. Kerala and the progressive literary movement in the country will miss him.
I convey my heartfelt condolences to his wife P P Sarojini, his son Rajeev and daughter Dr. Mayadevi.
