Dr. Gopal S. Hattiangdi – A Tribute
By V. Rajagopal Bhat
Hattiangdi Gopalmam is no more. When I was away at Vittal, news reached me that he was no more. On 16th May 2003, he repaired to the Lotus Feet of Revered Swami Anandashram, the Sage of Chitrapur, as he called Him.
His tryst with our Math and Guruparampara began right in earnest from December 1963 onwards. In the service of the Math and the Guru, he strove in a variety of roles and he adorned whatever he touched. In the sixties, he also edited the “Sunbeam”. Sometime later, the editor`s mantle fell on me around 1969 or so.
