Journalist Sumegha Gulati Passes Away



Young and brave journalist Sumegha Gulati has passed away earlier today in Mumbai, after bravely fighting years of battle with her illness.

Gulati had been a staffer at The Indian Express and was now writing reportage for publications like The Caravan, The Quint, and among many others.

She was in love with Kashmir more than any place on earth, where she spent a few months in 2009 while interning with a local daily.

Having studied journalism from Delhi University and then Asian College of Journalism, Gulati had grown into one of the talented journalists and a person deeply concerned about people’s issues.

The journalism community has lost a brave colleague and friend.

In 2014, she wrote about herself in this piece – I dated cancer.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
