Journalism today, is perhaps one of the most celebrated and respected professions, but has its roots way back in circa 59 B.C, when news was recorded in a circular called the Acta Diurna in Rome.

The Editors Guild of India is grieved by the untimely demise of senior journalist Ashwini Chopra, who was the resident editor of Punjab Kesari, a Hindi-language newspaper brought out by the Hind Samachar Group. Mr Chopra, a former member of Parliament, died after a prolonged illness. He was 63 and a grandson of Lala Jagat Narain who had founded the Hind Samachar Group and had fallen victim to a terrorist attack. Mr Chopra’s father Romesh Chander also was assassinated by terrorists.

In a condolence message, the Guild noted the contribution, the Hind Samachar group made in upholding independence and freedom of the media in the face of terrorism and violence in Punjab in the 1980’s. Mr Chopra, also known by his pet name Minna, had earned a post-graduate degree in journalism from the University of California, Berkeley, and was an avid cricketer. The Guild extends its heart-felt condolences to the bereaved family.
