About Us

Sudhir Kumar Singh
Spiritualist, staunch nationalist, and sometime actor once associated with Satyajit Ray, Sudhir Singh has mostly been a journalist since 1982. He is Uttar Pradeshi by birth, Calcuttan by education, upbringing, and now a thoroughbred Madhya Pradeshi at heart. Proud of his Statesman lineage, he had a fairly long innings with the Pioneer, and then with the Times of India whose editions he ran at Patna and Calcutta. He was sent by TOI to Bhopal in 1999 to start another edition which never saw the light of day. Faced with the prospect of joblessness in the city of lakes in 2002 when his contract with the Times ended, he was delivered by his old boss MJ Akbar who accommodated him in the Asian Age where he spent nearly eight happy years. Sudhir’s interests include books, yoga, long walks, occasional running, lifting weights, music, art, films, anything Apple -- and sinking in a raging sea of silence and emptiness. Blessed with a baritone, he also laughs a lot, often obstreperously. Well-wishers accuse him of being a self-absorbed recluse, a charge he has never been heard to rebut. Married (just once!), he has two utterly lovable sons from a diminutive, self-employed Bengali wife whom he often touches for gifts. Meet him on Facebook or follow him on twitter@sudhirksingh.
Anthony Shekhar Paul
The eleventh hour makeover from the daily grind of medical transcription to the new fangled world of website management has been quite a transition for Anthony Shekhar Paul. An ex-Calcuttan, he too stumbled his way into Bhopal in 1999 after job stints in Delhi and Chandigarh. He spent six years with Bhilwara Scribe training MTs before branching off on his own. A person of assorted skills, the compu savvy Shekhar (as he’s popularly known) is a good organizer, a gifted singer, and a soccer junkie to boot. Though married, he recently fell in love again, this time with his first-born, a daughter.


M. N. Buch
MN Buch
Stephenian, Cantabrigian, man of honour, visionary bureaucrat, and urban planner of legendary repute who conceptualized modern Bhopal’s first development plan, the tough-talking septuagenarian Mahesh N Buch took voluntary retirement in 1984 (in the rank of chief secretary) after short stints as vice-chairman of the Delhi Development Authority, and director-general of the National Institute of Urban Affairs. Admirers aver that he remains the closest approximation of an ideal bureaucrat. Much honoured, MN Buch is the recipient of the 1995 UNEP Award for desertification control in Jhabua, and the 1998 Aga Khan Award for Architecture. Quite apart from being a regular columnist, he has authored several books on urban planning and environment. He is currently chairman of the self-owned National Centre for Human Settlements and Environment. Mr Buch will be writing for this website whenever feasible, at least once a month if not a fortnight.
Chandrakant Naidu
Chandrakant Naidu
Chandrakant Naidu, 59, is one of India's most experienced editorial administrators. In a career spanning 38 years he has been the Executive Editor of Free Press Journal and editor of various regional editions of Indian Express and Hindustan Times. He has the rare distinction of having headed the editorial teams in UP, Bihar, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh -- the four Hindi heartland states that form the political fulcrum of India. He has mapped the readership profile at diverse places like Nagpur, Indore, Patna, Jaipur, Delhi, Raipur, Bhopal and Lucknow. Naidu has travelled and written extensively on the sociological and political behaviour in different regions. Soft-spoken and sincere, he is a fiercely independent thinker which comes through in his writings. An avid sports lover, Mr Naidu hopes to be a regular contributor.
