BS reporter bags journalism award

BS Reporter / New Delhi March 17, 2008

Prasad Nichenametla, a Business Standard staff correspondent, has received the 2007 Business Standard-Seema Nazareth Award for Excellence in Print Journalism. 
The award was presented to him by Vice-President M Hamid Ansari at a function in New Delhi on Saturday. 
The award recognises excellence in print journalism and is given every year to a journalist below 30 years of age. Apart from a citation, it carries a cash award of Rs 25,000 and a silver pen. 
Nichenametla is the ninth recipient of the award, instituted by Business Standard and the Nazareth family in memory of Seema Nazareth, a young Business Standard journalist who died in 1999. 
"The jury recognises Nichenametla's newsbreaking reports in the fields of education, human resources and rural development. He has displayed an evolved sense of what is news in a social context, has strong analytical abilities, and has successfully put several government programmes under the scanner, thereby providing readers with fresh perspectives that improve their understanding of vital issues," the citation read. 
Speaking on the occasion, Vice-President Ansari emphasised the media's role as India strives to transform itself into a "more open" society. 
Accepting the award, Nichenametla thanked Business Standard for the opportunity given to him to report on social issues the country is facing. PA Nazareth, Seema Nazareth's father, proposed the vote of thanks.

  1. Two years back in our class at IIMC, our batchmates used to say that
    one day Prasad will definitely be a big (intellectual) journalist
    because he is one of them who are borne to be a journalist. I feel
    this award somehow has recognised that fact. In so little time, he has proven his worth.
    I have seen a few people in journalism, who think like a journalists; speak like a journalist and behave like a journalist, Prasad, without
    any doubt, is one of them.
    Whenever you talk to him, he always gives you an impression of his excellent news sense, knowledge and analytical power.
    He has a comprehensive knowledge not only on social issues but on
    miscellaneous issues as well.
    I hope in the upcoming years, budding journalists would like to follow his footsteps.
