Condition of GPD is very critical.

Pune. G. P. Deshpande, Marathi playwright, also known as Gopu or GPD, who was hospitalised in Pune with a massive bleed in the brain on Monday 15th July, is still in the ICU in a deep coma. His condition is very critical. 

He has been under continuous treatment and close monitoring. The doctors have told to "wait and watch". The second and third, fourth opinions confirmed the treatment.

The doctors have also told  that there is no neurological activity in the brain.

G. P. Deshpande, Marathi playwright, was born in 1938 in Nasik, Maharashtra. He received the Maharashtra State Award for his collective work in 1977, and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for playwriting in 1996. Prof. Deshpande is known for advocating strong, progressive values not only through his academic writings but also through his creative work. His plays especially reflect upon the decline of progressive values in contemporary life. He is impressively persuasive. Having specialized in Chinese studies, he  headed the Centre of East Asian Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University. The Library of Congress has acquired twelve of his books including a few on Chinese foreign policy. Some of his works have been translated into English.
