    A great loss to the indian journalism.. I still remember the days of my childhood when i used to wait for each edition of "Tharanga" to read the "Antharanga Bahiranga" column from Gulwadi. Sad that he had to leave "Tharanga", the baby which he brought up and join Vijaya karnataka a money minded news paper for some time, where he was not given enough recognition.

    Is very sad news that a great journalist,first editor of TARANGA passed away. I have never missed Taranga till he was running the show. Due to misunderstanding with Management and his departure from Taranga, I also lost interest in Taranga.

    My deep condolences Gulvadi Family.

    Santhosh Kumar Gulvady was an Editor par excellence.He brought in
    a lot of innovative ideas in Kannada journalism.The advent of
    Taranga weekly was an instant hit
    because of Gulvadymam.He was a staunch supporter of Konkani language and culture.He penned a
    Konkani folklore book titled Tha Tha Thinganna.Respectful homage to
    the departed soul.

    WE LOST A GREAT JOURNALIST BUT HE ALWAYS LIVE IN THE HEARTS OF PEOPLE THROUGH "ANTHARANGA-BAHIRANGA". EVERY NEW THARANGA WILL MAKE US REMEMBER YOU AT LEAST ONCE IN A WEEK. THE PEOPLE OF GULVADY WILL NEVER FORGET HIM AND VENKAT RAO GULVADY (FIRST NOVELIST OF KANNADA) FOR TAKING THE NAME OF OUR VILLAGE INTO THE SKY OF KANNADA LITERATURE.
    MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE.

    I too share the same opinion as of Mr.harini, kavoor/mangalore that
    gulvadi,a great cartoon lover... Much of my cartoon creations were published during his tenure as editor of tharanga...In fact shri Gulwadi gave equal importance to cartoons as showed to articles and stories. May his soul rest in peace.
