RIP Dr Ashok Mitra, Economist and Ex-Minister

Dr Ashok Mitra and Mr LK Advani were among the first political leaders I got to meet on my first journalistic job at Newstime of the Eenadu group in Hyderabad.

That was part of the initiation the first batch of apprentice journalists got at Newstime where we also received training from the likes of Khushwant Singh and Kuldip Nayar.

RIP Ashok Mitra, sir!
