Haridwar, 21 Jul: The late Ambrish Kumar was a politician from Haridwar who was respected by all irrespective of their political backgrounds.
I remember once interviewing him during elections. His views were always backed by facts. When I appreciated his depth of knowledge, he shared that he read at least twenty books a year. Fond of scholarly articles, he often used to send me articles for translation. He wanted me to translate a book by Irfan Habib on the Indian National Movement and distribute to young students having political mindsets. I translated ten pages but couldn’t continue further.
He was a legend. It is an irreparable loss to the people of Haridwar.
