Prabhash Joshi: out at 72

It seems only yesterday that Prabhash ji came to release my book, together with Ashis Nandy. He said he would write an article linking it to Hind Swaraj.  Almost since then I was out of Delhi, and had just returned and wanted to discuss further with him when I heard the news.

72 is not a bad score, but we were expecting a century, Prabhash ji!

“a man of extraordinary intellectual courage and professional integrity…a whole generation of journalists drew inspiration from him, especially in questioning the current orthodoxy”.

Dr Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India
