“Journalists never retire”: NPR

After 33 years, N P Rajendran step downs as deputy editor of ‘Mathrubhumi.’ In 1981 NPR, as he is affectionately called, joined the paper as a journalist trainee spurning 2 government jobs. Steeped in the values of the old school of journalism made him become mediator post-Marad communal riots, for ultimately we are all “bare, social forked animals.” He recollects the pioneering role of V M ‘Vimsi’ Balachandran and K Jayachandran in the field of environmental journalism. NPR reminisces on his one and half months spent in the apocalyptic aftermath of the fall of the Berlin wall, his politically satirical column ‘Visheshaalprathi,’ his books and stint as Chairperson of Kerala Press Academy on ‘Morning Show.’
