Sir RC mapakshi expired.

RC mapakshi
(June 4th, 1944 – February 24, 2007)

It is with great regret that I announce the death of Sir R.C Mapakshi who lived for the betterment of Cinematography until his very last breath in Kannada film industry.
He was an excellent cinematographer and teacher.
He was passionate about his work.
He is the person who is responsible for getting 70 MM to Kannada films industry when he did cinematography for Sharavegadha Saradara in the year 1988.
I have lived with sir for more than a year. He was my local guardian in Bangalore.
People often found him very strict, but he was very caring and loving.
I am short of words to express my feelings for the significant loss.
May his soul rest in Peace.
