My dad retires next month! he as been a journalist for over 30 years now and has worked with almost all the mainstream newspapers in Bangalore across 3 different languages! I know it is going to be very difficult for him (and for anyone really) to one day stop doing what they were doing for over 30 years and it is going to be a dramatic switch if he does something different. A LOT will change 🙂
This is his morning ritual and has been for the past 20 years that we’ve been staying at this house. Every morning he sits and goes through each of the 8 – 10 newspapers that get delivered to my house in the morning. He compares the same story in each newspaper and makes notes at times on which newspaper gave importance to what part of the story etc.
He will be retiring as the Deputy Political Editor for the Economic Times, Bangalore.
