KG Kannabiran

KG Kannabiran, 1929-2010.

Among much else: "In 1971, he filed a writ petition successfully challenging the Andhra Pradesh Preventive Detention Act, 1970, under which writers, poets and intellectuals had been arrested." (The Hindu, December 31 2010).

Especially at a time Binayak Sen has been imprisoned, you will be missed, Mr Kannabiran.

Go in peace.

Writers, Journos and intellectuals like Barkha, Rajdeep, Prabhu are above the law.
