Never will be another Viv


Saw very little of Sir Viv, or rather, remember very little of him. But I remember the look of reverence in the eyes of my dad and my uncles whenever his name was mentioned.

I did see Fire in Babylon though, and it is masterful. And tells us a lot about Sir Viv.

And here’s this interview – read it here. The most amazing excerpt is as below:

… which does he rate as his finest innings? He looks you straight in the eye and replies, with quiet pride, “Never going to apartheid-era South Africa.”

There will never be another like him.
