The death of the renowned columnist Ardeshir Cowasjee marks the end of an era and a great loss for this country. People like him seldom walk on this earth. When he stopped writing one year back, he ended it with following words, "Now, old at 85, tired, and disillusioned with a country that just cannot pull itself together in any way and get on with life in this day and age, I have decided to call it a day", you will always be missed.
