Bhubaneswar, August 18 (LocalWire): Senior journalist Ranjit Guru, whose expertise in tidying-up editorial contents and centre-spread articles was appreciated in the media fraternity, passed away after a brief illness in the wee hours today at a city-based private hospital.
He was 61 and is survived by his wife and a daughter.
A native of Sambalpur district, Guru has left behind a three-decade-old legacy of unbiased and qualitative journalism.
Besides a highly successful professional career in Sambad, an Odia daily, he also had stints in English journalism.
‘He had an amiable and unassuming personality which will be remembered,’ said senior journalist Subrat Das.
