Karmayogi AmarNath Vaishnavi

Pandit Amar Nath Vaishnavi

Veteran Kashmiri Pandit leader Amar Nath Vaishnavi passed away recently after a brief illness. He was the President of the All State Kashmiri Pandit Conference and even at 87 years of age, quite active in the service of his community.

A lot of good is being said about him, admiration that the Karmayogi earned the hard way, through the unselfish manner of his living. Ever unassuming but always at the center of Kashmiri Hindu affairs, Pt. Amar Nath was popular and loved from his Chattabal, Srinagar days. His battle cry “Jaykara, Har Har Mahadev,” had earned him the sobriquet of Jaykara and countless fans and followers. He was not short of those fans and followers upon his passing and his popular slogan rent the air as his funeral procession traveled.

Here is a link to his coverage by Shehjar several years ago in its Community Spotlight section.
