12 June. Today is the fifth day of the Newslab – six day workshop at St Josephs College Autonomous, Bangalore.
It was indeed highly encouraging and flattering to see the progress in their news-writing by the students. I was very comforted.
The fruit of the hard work by DDF (my former student) and Sudipto, D. Kartikeyan (former The Hindu special correspondent and currently a PhD Scholar at the University of Edinburgh), Nikhil and Srividya. Their inputs were tremendous – straight from their field experience, peppered by their SJC learning.
I was especially gladdened by my former students pouring in during the last four days – beginning with Derek, Vaibhav, Mark, Priyanka Sachidananda, Varun Venkatesh, Pawan, Kashif Iqbal, and Joshua. Just a “hi” makes so much of difference! Both to me and to my students.
Waiting to see other alumni/nae on Saturday!
