Birth anniversary of Legendary Marathi Storyteller, Writer, Actor, Director, Musician - Pu La Deshpande

Purushottam Lakshman Deshpande (fondly known as Pu La) - today 8th November is his 98th birth anniversary.
We have grown up reading his witty, still thought provoking books. Big thank you to Pu La and to my parents who made his literature available for us. His books list is endless - Batatyachi chaal, Vyakti ani Valli, Gangot, Asa mi Asami, Mhais, Gun Gain Avadi, Jave tyanchya Desha, Vangachitre... List goes on.
Salute ani namaskar Pu la Aajoba. Shatashah Dhanyawad.
