I remember having a great time shooting with Mr Bourdain and he especially loved the Puttu and Meen curry made from home. After that day I made it a point to catch episodes of "No Reservations" as well as "Parts Unknown". His shows brought the world closer together by showcasing various foods and cultures."
"When we visited America afterwards, his entire team gave me the warmest welcome in New York and took us on a tour of their offices and production facilities. It gave me great pride to see clippings of Malayalam newspapers of our shoot together pinned all over their office walls.
Despite having met only once , the news of his passing came as a shock . Such was his impact through his shows on the whole world. The world is not a better place without you Bourdain."
