Hi fellas, heard this some time back?
Apparently, Navhind Publications manager Pramod Revankar was approached by the Herald sometime back. The offer apparently didn't work out. Anybody have some dope on this? Its one helluva flux isn't it? Revankar was one of the major headhunters for TNT in this scenario. A hunter who came back home, head drooped, with no hunks of deer meat over his shoulder. Last we heard his bosses weren't too happy with his powers of retention. No no his bladder's fine... Just that they were displeased with the fact that too many fellas quit the paper for TOI. TNT just could not retain them.The list runs is pretty long. We've given you the link, but sure there are additions to it now. There's something else guys... While everyone focusses on the losses to TNT, Navprabha is also in crisis mode, with hard-working chaps like Ganesh Javdekar and Kishor Kubal switching to Gomantak. Gurudas Sawal retired earlier this year. The editor Suresh Walve is serving on an extension. The only other mainstay Sanjiv Verenkar hates Walve. Things are pretty sick out there.

Oh! so you work for the Herald. You are trying to dislodge the poor chap and bring him to your side. Or is it that you work for the TNT and are trying to take his place?

Does anyone have any dope as to who would take over from Revankar should he quit?

P.S. PP, How does this article fit into your mission statement?

Sanjiv Verenkar is going to continue with Navprabha. The guy refused to join Sunaparant when it was relaunched in Jan 2004despite requests from his own editor Suresh Walve who wanted him to go. Raju Naik will give more dope on this.

Can Raju Naik provide more dope on this. I believe his columns were interesting and exposed many jurnos then.

BTW Suresh Walve is on way out and Paresh Prabhu will be the new editor for Navprabha from next month. Is it true?

Raju does not write his surname as Naik but as Nayak, a pucca Saraswat bamon from Comba,Margao. Tell Raju to give more dope about his own activities in Margao which will make more interesting reading rather than asking him to recollect old columns. After those cloumns the newspaper which published it soon closed down

Paresh Prabhu took over as Executive Editor of Navprabha from 7th April, 2008. One must read his first edit.
