The brilliant director of Loins of Punjab Presents is no longer with us. I am shocked and heartbroken. He was a wonderful man – super intelligent, interested, warm, funny, talented, inspiring, always a pleasure to be around. My love to his family.
Manish’s voice was “Shadow Puppet #3” in Sita Sings the Blues.
I’m still absorbing the shock. More when I get back from New Hampshire next week.

This is terrible news. I loved “Loins of Punjab Presents” and was certainly looking forward to seeing what other movies its creator might make…
I am very sorry for your loss.
I didn’t know about Manish Acharya but I saw, and loved, “Sita Sings The Blues.”
I am a long-time admirer of your cartoons and because I am only now becoming acquainted with them, a recent admirer of your ideas.
What saddens you saddens me,
again I am sorry for your loss,
It is an unfortunate fact of human nature that while at first I had never heard of Manish, when I read that he was Shadow Puppet Number 3 I suddenly felt sad.
I am glad you caught his unscripted voice in film so that we could all enjoy the feel of his personality for a few moments too.
As I mentioned, this is an awful event. Our condolences to Manish’s family and the Sita family.
Rebecca and Mukul
I can’t believe this was 4 years ago already.
