Narayan Desai, noted Gandhian and Bapu's kathakar, dies at 90 


Narayan Desai, 90, one of the tallest Gandhians in the country and son of Mahadev Desai, Mahatma Gandhi's personal secretary, died at his house in Vedchi village in Tapi district on Sunday, March 15, 2015 after a brief illness.

Born on December 24, 1924, in Valsad, Narayanbhai was brought up in Ahmedabad's Sabarmati Ashram and Sevagram near Wardha. Gandhiji fondly called him 'Bablo' and he was the last of many Gandhians alive who had lived with Bapu and had experienced his personal care.

The 'Gandhi kathakar' died of cerebrovascular and respiratory failure between 1.30am and 4.30am. He died at his residence which he called the Sampurna Kranti Vidyalaya.
