NASIR KAMAL BHOPAL

Nasir Kamal, the best pen available on Bhopal’s unique culture and the best example of the old Bhopali ‘tehzeeb’ is no more. The senior journalist from Bhopal expired at Mumbai on Wednesday 3rd August 2011. He was suffering from fever during his visit to Mumbai.
Kamaal, 55, is survived by his wife and two sons. He had recently joined Times of India at Bhopal. Sources said that he was suffering from a fever for the last few days. Kamaal had worked for MP Chronicle, National Mail, Free Press Journal and The Hindustan Times. He was famous for his columns “Then and Now” and “Time Machine”. A thorough gentleman, Mr Nasir Kamal had lofty values ​​of the quality of journalism and journalistic writing. He lived like a monk. His journalistic career and dedication will continue to inspire new generations.
His last journey will start from Safia Masjid, Ahmedabad Palace at 1:30 PM today. He will be cremated at Bada Bag crematorium.
Many of his articles were published in this blog with his kind permission. Wanted to talk to him about guest blogging, but sadly that was not to happen. Bhopale expresses profound grief over Nasir Kamal’s death and hope that Almighty will give him a place in paradise since Kamal has died in the pious month of Ramazan.

  2. Difficult to believe that he is no more. He was a great writer and did a lot to keep the culture of the city alive even while rapid commercialisation was submerging it. Commiserations to his family and hope God gives them the strength to bear the loss and grief.

  4. It is so hard to believe that Nasirji has gone. Had met him when I worked in HT. God bless his soul ( I still dont believe I am writing all this for him- such a lively person) and god bless his family.
