Hyderabad | 29th April 2021
Prominent painter and writer from Telangana Chandrasekhar, known more popularly as Chandra, succumbed to Covid-19 last night. He was 74.

The writer, a native of Warangal, breathed his last while undergoing treatment at the Mother Theresa Rehabilitation Centre in Secunderabad. He had been undergoing neurological treatment for the past three years.

Chandra’s last remains were moved to his house at Srinagar Colony this morning.

Many well-known authors and artists expressed their sorrow at his passing and conveyed their condolences to the bereaved family. They remembered his contribution to the fields of both literature and art, and said that he would be dearly missed.

Artist Srinivas Nayak said that Chandra had been an inspiration to many artists of the current generation.

"Many artists refer to his illustrations for reference even today. Line drawings, stroke styles and the detailing that characterise his work are so masterful that he will remain an inspiration to many in the field in the future as well," Nayak added.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao also expressed his sadness at the death of the famed illustrator.

Chandra is one of many luminaries the state has lost in the recent past. On April 27, veteran Congress leader M Satyanarayana Rao passed away while he was undergoing treatment at the NIMS, and famed journalist Sridhar Dharmasanam passed away yesterday while undergoing treatment for Covid-19 at the TIMS.
