Assam: Well-known Journalist Barun Dasgupta passes away

Barun Dasgupta, a well-known journalist, died on Sunday morning in a Kolkata hospital. He was 86 years old when he died.

Dasgupta had been suffering from various organ failure for the previous four to five years after the death of his poet wife Ruchira Shyam in the journalists’ cooperative housing complex in Salt Lake.

Barun Dasgupta was raised in the Gandhi Ashram in Sodepur, which his elder uncle Satish Dasgupta and father Kshitish Dasgupta founded.

He could communicate in Bengali, Assamese, Hindi, and English. He worked for a number of publications. In Guwahati, he retired as a special reporter for The Hindu.

Dasgupta worked as a professional in Patna, New Delhi, Kolkata, and Guwahati. For many years, Dasgupta has been an active member of the Indian Journalists’ Association.

The Gauhati Press Club (GPC) has expressed its condolences on the loss of veteran journalist Barun Dasgupta, who had recently resigned as The Hindu’s chief reporter in Guwahati.

GPC said in a statement that the veteran scribe had reported extensively on numerous topics in the North East, especially Assam, during the course of his career, which spanned many decades. It went on to say that Dasgupta’s death has left a tremendous vacuum in journalism.
