R P Nene

Senior Marxist scholar and activist Comrade R P Nene passed away on 23 March. This is an appeal to cooperate in putting together a volume that will recollect his many contributions to various social and political movements. Comrade Nene’s published writings are far too few in comparison to his many intellectual activities. Nevertheless, we intend to collect and put out all his published work along with reminiscences about him.

Comrade Nene had many outstanding qualities. He spanned a large intellectual canvas, paying meticulous attention to facts and details. He had an amazing memory. He always made a special effort to understand the other point of view, although he may have had a serious difference of opinion. And he was ever willing to cooperate even while holding these differing views. He worked untiringly, never for personal gain or fame. Ever polite, he represented the now disappearing generation of scholar-activists for whom simple living and persistence was a way of life. And yet Comrade Nene had an exuberant zest for life, enjoying music, art, cinema with equal vigour. All those who worked with him in different movements and organisations experienced these myriad facets of his personality in so many ways.
