Eyecatchers-98: "Solzhenitsyn is dead"

Solzhenitzyn is dead!
By Vladimir Radyuhin


Nobel prize-winning Russian author and thinker, Alexander Solzhenitsyn died on Sunday (August 3, 2008), ending a bitter and illustrious life journey that reflected Russia’s tumultuous history through the 20th century.

Aged 89, Solzhenitsyn died of heart arrest close to midnight at his home on the outskirts of Moscow. His family said he worked till the last minute and died a happy man.

Excerpt from The Hindu, Madurai, August 5, 2008.
