Jnanpith Award winner Ravuri Bharadwaja, 86, has passed away here on Friday. Bharadwaja breathed his last at CARE Hospital where he was admitted with multiple complaints. He fell sick a few days after returned from New Delhi where he received the award.

Bharadwaja won the prestigious literary award for 2012 for his novel Pakuduraallu (Slippery stones), which portrayed the dark side of the film industry. His long time friend, who was also a writer, from his Tenali days, Aluru Bhujanga Rao, too passed away a few months ago.

Bharadwaja’s Jeevan Samaram, which shed light on the lives of people who hardly find any attention, was a trendsetter in Telugu journalism.

He worked in All India Radio in the sixties and seventies. He published about 130 books, which includes novels, short stories and children’s literature.
