Remembering Chapalgaonkar Sir

A young, promising, energetic journalist as Vyankatesh Chapalgaongar was known for, it was sad to hear the tragic news of his untimely death that made headlines ... of the man who always strived to get to get to a logical conclusion of any news story he clinched!

Belonging to the same fraternity, I have always had respect for Sir, who was scaling new heights in this field and was unoubtedly one of teh finest marathi journalists'. I have never had an opportunity to meet him personally, but the charizma that would reflect from his persona as we would watch him reporting from the front was enough to understand his passion for his work, which I have been hearing since college days while studying mass communication.

It was a terrible jolt to hear news of the mishap that took place. May his soul rest in peace!
