Nagpur Kendra
Senior Advocate Shri Krishnarao Hariharrao Deshpande, one of the pillars of strength of Bhavan's Nagpur Kendra left for his heavenly abode on March 25, 2022, at the age of 94 years.
Shri Deshpande, a legal luminary and noted scholar, started practicing Law in 1953 at Akola. After a few years, he shifted to Amravati and thereafter to Nagpur, and started practicing at Bombay High Court. A doyen of Bar, he was conferred with the designation of Senior Advocate by the Bombay High Court in 1977. He was fondly referred to as 'Bhishma Pitahmah' of the Nagpur Bench, and was gifted with razor sharp memory, wit, legal acumen and ability to interpret the law and handle any complex situation with ease.
A senior Kendra Committee Member of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Nagpur Kendra, Shri Deshpande was associated with the Bhavan since four decades, giving valuable advice on legal matters pertaining to the smooth functioning and development of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Nagpur Kendra.
Shri Deshpande had participated in the Freedom Struggle too. He was an active congress worker and was arrested in June 1942 for distributing literature regarding Quit India Movement against the British.
He was a highly respected legal luminary, and had authored commentaries on Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads and several books on spirituality titled 'Shri-Geetarthabodh', 'Chandev-Chalisi' and 'Dakshina-Murti', to name a few. He was conferred with the title of 'Tattvajna Vibhushana' by Kavi Kulaguru Kalidas Sanskrit University, Ramtek.
Sr. Advocate K. H. Deshpande is survived by his wife Usha, sons Justice Ravi K. Deshpande, (Retd.), and Rajeev Deshpande, (C.A.), daughter Sneha Pangarkar and grandchildren. May God give strength to his family to bear the irreparable loss, and may his soul rest in eternal peace.
