Journalists, I thought 31 years ago, were the conscience-keepers of the nation. How much has changed since then, my first job as a Sub-Editor at The Telegraph newspaper in Calcutta (now Kolkata)? Nothing and everything, of course ! I remain deeply interested in reporting a constantly changing India, as well as chronicling the debates and discussions that take place across South Asia.

This blog will tell bits and parts of that journey, so hang on to your seat belts ! All aboard ?
