Caught in the act
Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan was also at the MiD DAY office recently, as guest editor. MiD DAY photographer Rane Ashish caught me trying to shoot SRK in editor Shishir Joshi's cabin.

Chak De! MiD DAY!
The Chak De! India girls were at the MiD DAY office. Was too shy to chat with them. Just smiled. PIC/Rane Ashish/MiD DAY

With my right hand still broken, cannot shave. So I decided to sport a beard. Let's see how long it lasts. PIC/Pradeep Dhivar/MiD DAY

Wow, am back! Lots happening in media
Sakal is planning an English newspaper in Mumbai, Mail Today may come to Mumbai, DNA is going to Pune, Saira Menezes is joining People magazine's India edition as editor, a new paper is coming out in the Gulf, INX (or is it JINX?) is planning a news channel... and lots more. Let me take a deep breath!
