Arun Sadhu (1942-2017) who breathed his last on 24th September was not only a very good journalist but also a novelist. His first novel Mumbai Dinank, published in 1973, chronicles a day in the life of a chief reporter of a daily newspaper in the city.

Later another novel of his called Simhasan was adapted by the famous and late playwright Vijay Tendulkar into a screenplay. The film was directed by yet another noted theatre director Jabbar Patel.

While Sadhu wrote about politics and revolutionary heroes like Fidel Castro and Che Guevera, he was also greatly instrumental in introducing Dalit Literature in Marathi to English readers through translations in the Times of India.

Among his noted contributions is also a translation of poems by the Telugu revolutionary poet Chera Banda Raju. With Kumar Ketkar and others he had formed an organisation called Granthali which published important works such as Daya Pawar's autobiography Balute and made these texts accessible to readers across Maharashtra.
