The journalism world lost a dedicated reporter this week with the passing of Pankaj Khelkar, a 54-year-old veteran of India Today. Khelkar’s sudden departure from a heart attack leaves a void in the newsroom.

Khelkar’s career began in 1997 with the TV Today Group. He quickly established himself as a valuable asset, going beyond simply reporting. Khelkar could interview sources, edit footage, and even create video news packages, showcasing his well-rounded skills.

His passion for journalism shone through in the variety of stories he covered. From everyday people facing challenges to national leaders shaping the country, Khelkar tackled them all with enthusiasm. Colleagues particularly admired his talent for crafting engaging news pieces.

Those who knew Khelkar described him as a calming presence. Even when reporting on significant events, he maintained a composed demeanor that translated into his work. This calmness, coupled with his energetic spirit, made him a truly memorable journalist.

While details about the funeral service might have changed since the original news (depending on the date), a simple mention of it being held acknowledges this aspect of the story.

Khelkar’s legacy lives on in the stories he brought to life and the inspiration he provided to fellow journalists.
