Thiruvananthapuram: Eminent Malayalam poet, conservationist and women’s activist Sugathakumari, died today. She was 86.

Sugathakumari had tested positive for COVID-19 and was undergoing treatment at the government hospital in Thiruvananthapuram.

The octogenarian poet rarely made any public appearance in recent days due to old age related difficulties.

Fondly called ”Sugatha Teacher” by hundreds of her admirers and followers, Sugathakumar had been admitted to the intensive care unit of the medical college after being diagnosed with the viral infection on December 21.

The poet was on ventilator support, medical college authorities said.

“The tragic end has come. As I bow my head in tribute to the departed soul, I recall many moments at her side, from felicitating her Saraswati Samman, to addressing environmentalists alongside her…,” author and politician Shashi Tharoor wrote on Twitter in his tribute to Sugathakumari.
