Recently Prof. M.A. Hegde has departed us, and pushed us into deep sorrow. He was President, Karnataka Yakshagana Academy, Retired Principal, Sanskrit and Yakshagana scholar, Poet and Artiste, more over a real Humanitarian who served for a purpose and artistes. Salutations to him. On this painful situation; Noopurabhramari, remembering the acquaintance with Sri M A Hegde, and offering Shraddhanjali. Also would like to share his article on Puranic source in Yakshagana; which he has contributed to Sahapedia, for the Yakshagana Module tutored by Editor Dr Manorama B N, in 2017.
