......................................................................................................................................................................................2013, September- During my last meeting with Rosscote Krishna Pillai, He showed me some old photographs in which N.K. Achary, along with his peers was seen with Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. It was a rare find. Along with the original photograph was an old article , on the incident, written by Rosscote himself. Rosscote remembered his old friend, N.K. Achary. "He was a man of varied talents", said Rosscote. "however, as friends we used to tease him for his stinginess. Once we were travelling in an auto-rickshaw and when ever the driver asked for money, Achary would say, with a mischievous smile that he did not have change" recalled Rosscote. Finally, Rosscote was fed up with the tactics of his shrewd friend and demanded him to go and get change. .......................................................................................................................................................................................
