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...

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...

Atmanirbhar, Really? Do you believe in that? Part 1 of 2

Words like “Make in India”, “#AtmanirbharBharat” or self-reliant India have been doing the rounds much before we got our Independence in 1947. It was Mahatma Gandhi dressed in his simple cotton dhoti and shawl who...

Auto Journalist or Influencer, or is it two-in-one? Part 1 of 3

OEMs are basically manufacturers of cars, two wheelers and other vehicles. I have often asked myself, are OEMs like the Pied Piper of Hamelin in the poem written by Robert Browning. And are we journalists and influe...

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 4 OF 9

Many of us would have heard of the Hindi phrase “Paapi pet ka sawal hein…” In essence it means, eventually it’s all about feeding ourselves, it’s about our stomach… Yes, we all work hard because we want to put food ...

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 2 OF 9

In the past I have talked a bit about #journalists, but what about #PublicRelations boys and girls? Who are they? What is their mandate?

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...

Jeremy Clarkson needs a punch

Jeremy Clarkson. We all know that this man working for BBC and who hosts the show ‘Top Gear’ has a huge fan following. So does Sunny Leone and Pamella Anderson, at least when her silicon implants were in good order!...
