Best of my headlines

My favourite headlines: These are some of the wittiest headlines I have ever given on news pieces and articles during my four-year long writing career.



I Know what you will do next summer- I had given this headline to a news piece about a seminar that claimed that the police would be able to predict the date and time of a crime soon. (for The Maharashtra Herald, October 2007)


Father Terressa- This was a story done by my friend about a ward boy in MY Hospital in Indore who despite his retirement, keeps serving the leprosy patients there. I am very proud of this headline. (This was for India Today)


Eau-de-Itra For one of my most celebrated reports on Indian scent (Itra). This was a sub-headline I had given to one of the value additions in the story for The Free Press Journal (2005).


She disabled the odds For a news report that talked about a physically disabled girl who topped Class VIII board exams. The Maharashtra Herald, June 2007.


Recycle (memories) Bin This was a sub-head in my column on college campuses. The column talked about final year students’ feelings on leaving the campus. (The Free Press Journal 2005)

    well one thing is sure that only news paper or written media is only thing left ..which still give you a sense of some real Journalism and creativity…..otherwise God save humans from media.
