It is said that old soldiers never die, they just fade away. One hardly knew that Russy K Karanjia, the father of investigate journalism in India, was living until the news of his death appeared!

It used to be said that his national correspondents were in the Cabinet and his foreign representatives in India's diplomatic missions abroad. The National Press Association should institute an award in his name to promote investigative journalism. Comment??
