Sahitya Akademi Award-winning writer Kiran Nagarkar dies at 77

His novels offered a biting humour and complex insights into human nature.

Like several writers and artists of his generation, Nagarkar began his career as an educationist, a journalist and then later as a screenplay writer in the advertising industry. His advertisment campaigns with close friend and poet Arun Kolatkar were considered path-breaking.

The bilingual bard of Bombay and Mumbai, Kiran Nagarkar gave Indian writing in English an electric charge

Like many of that generation, Nagarkar was rooted in a cosmopolitan, bilingual modernity. His imagination gave Indian writing in English an electric charge, a bawdy energy that saved it from derivative dullness. His first novel, Saat Sakkam Trechalis, was written in Marathi in 1974; its urban, male angst could be traced to predecessors such as Bhalchandra Nemade's Kosala (1963) but there was no mistaking this striking, new voice.
