A Missive Hit

There is a war of words on in Bangalore, between actor and playwright Girish Karnad and filmmaker Girish Kasaravalli. A quick recap: Karnad had hit out against U.R. Ananthamurthy at the Bangalore Litfest recently, at a session meant to be a tribute to the author who passed away last month. Outlook carried a column on this, and Karnad’s other outbursts, by Sandeep Balakrishna three weeks ago. Now, Girish Kasaravalli seems to have circulated this piece to his friends by email, with a line about how he had always wanted to slap Girish Karnad. The missive found its way to Karnad’s inbox and he quickly shot back a mail to Kasaravalli, saying: “Let’s face it, you simply lacked the b***s to do it.” Kasaravalli is generally known to his friends as a mild-mannered, soft-spoken gentleman. Will he end it here or reply to Karnad?
