Gurinder is no more; News that never hit the headlines!

“Gurinder is no more you know? He died of gunshot injuries a couple of years back. I was informed about this a few days back when I met a journalist from Punjab,” Shafiq told me. I was aghast. How is it that I misse...

Auto Journalists: Do the new IT rules on freebies include us?

It’s been several months since I accepted a car or bike “review” invitation. Yes, I miss reviewing new cars and bikes. There is no denying that fact. OEMs continue to shower journalists with free air travel, free 5-...

Followers, Views, Likes and the Blue Tick

In the good old days, some of us used to pick up the morning #newspaper to read the latest news, whether it was on #politics, #sports, local development or #business. The more voracious readers amongst us spent thei...

 “Ji Shaab” and the comical role of journalists today

As I was growing up I loved watching Hindi movies. During the 1980s and 1990s, and perhaps before that too, there was a “Bahadur” character in every other movie who always responded to his master by saying, “Jee Sha...

Atmanirbhar, Really? Do you believe in that?  Part 2 of 2

But all the talk of “Atmanirbhar Bharat” makes no sense if it does not bring in the moolah for the investor. In the early days of post Independence making moolah was very difficult because of the “red-tapism” and co...

Ever been on drugs? Ever quit the habit?

Getting hooked on #narcotics substances can be very dangerous. They destroy lives, minds and souls. The sale and consumption of illegal narcotics are rampant across the globe. The first time I had a narcotic substan...

Auto Journalist or Influencer, or is it two-in-one? Part 3 of 3

Yes, I know auto journalists and the organisations they work for are not rich in the real sense. Auto journalists cannot travel all over the world and drive fancy cars and bikes by spending their own money. No media...

JOURNALISTS & PR PROFESSIONALS- PART 9 OF 9

I saw the #socialmedia tsunami coming but could never fathom its intensity. It was around 2004-2005 when platforms like #youtube , #twitter , #facebook , etc were born. Much later #instagram came into being. #tiktok...

JOURNALISTS & PR PROFESSIONALS- PART 7 OF 9

A couple of decades back, #journalists were kind of independent when it came to reporting and they never had the management breathing down their necks to get moolah for their organisations. And even if they wanted...

JOURNALISTS & PR PROFESSIONALS- PART 6 of 9

In days of yore, #journalists were simple in their outlook, existed on meagre salaries and were there on a mission to bring out the truth. In the 1980s and early 1990s before the television boom, business journalism...

JOURNALISTS & PR PROFESSIONALS- PART 5 OF 9

In Part 4, I explained what it means to deal with the “Paapi pet ka sawal hein…” issue. After all, journalists and PR pros are humans too. They have to survive.

JOURNALISTS & PR PROFESSIONALS- PART 3 FO 9

Are #journalists different from #PRprofessionals? I really do not think so. Both jobs call for a lot of hard work, patience and self-respect. I have often referred to these professions as two sides of a coin. Throug...

JOURNALISTS & PR PROFESSIONALS- PART 1 OF 9

For more than a decade from the 1980s to 1990s, I was a business journalist working in different newspapers. #Journalists at that time were known for their ethics, self-respect, high moral standards and their vast k...

For God’s sake keep your country clean

Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a clarion call to make India clean (Swatch Bharat), there has been a flurry of activities, both genuine and fraud, trying to heed to his call. Some have honestly taken up...
