Arnab Goswami: Profile, Family, Wife and Salary

Arnab Goswami gives Rajdeep Sardesai, Barkha Dutt and Ravish Kumar, among others a reason to re-celebrate Deewali. He has resigned from the post of Editor-in-Chief of Times Now. Other media houses, especially English News Channel, will take a sigh of relief as they can now expect to get some TRP during the prime time. The celebration may proved to be of short duration as Arnab is coming back with his brand new channel - Republic. 

It should be noted here that the TRP of Times Now when Arnab used to host News Hour was more than 500 times to the second rank channel…. Yes, more than FIVE HUNDRED TIMES… Now, you can have a sense of the power of Arnab Goswami, the most loved and also most hated News personality of India. It is widely anticipated that the new channel Republic will also prove to be a sort of disruptive entry into the highly competitive news channel business where almost all channels are working with very thin margin of profit.

Profile of Arnab Goswami

Arnab Goswami was born in Guahati, Assam on 9th October, 1973. He belongs to one of the most influential and respected families of Guahati. His grand father was an eminent jurist while his maternal grand father was a well-known Communist leader who was once the leader of Opposition in the Assam Legislative Assembly.

Arnab parents – Manoranjan and Suprabha Goswami – are also eminent personalities of Asom. Manoranjan Goswami had fought 1998 Lok Sabha Election unsuccessfully on a BJP ticket. His maternal uncle is still a prominent BJP leader.

However, Arnab has always ensured to keep off his political associations at work. Some of exposes he has done against the BJP, like Sushma Swaraj-Lalit Modi case or Modi’s alleged scooping scandal are cases in point.

Arnab father Manoranjan Goswami was a Colonel in the Indian Army and because of this he had studied in various Army Schools throughout India. He did Graduation from the prestigious Hindu College, Delhi University. Later, he got admitted to the Oxford University from where he has done MA in Social Anthropology.

Career in Journalism

Arnab started his career with print media and did short stint with The Telegraph. Later, he shifted focus to the electronic media and joined NDTV in 1995. He became the Senior Editor of NDTV 24 X7 when it was launched as a 24 hour news channel. His News Hour program was quite successful. However, at NDTV he never got recognition because of the influence of Rajdeep Sardesai. It is said that Rajdeep did everything to cut the wings of Arnab at NDTV and never allowed him to make his own personal identity among news watchers.

Wife of Arnab Goswami

Pipi Goswami is the name of Arnab’s wife. They studied together in the Hindu College. Little is known about Pipi, but once Arnab said that she is also a journalist.

Mukhar Abbas Naqvi and Ashok Singhal Relationship

Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is Minister of State for Minority Affairs to the Government of India. He is a prominent BJP politician and widely regarded as the Muslim face of the party. However, the dirty IT departments of Congress and AAP are sharing news over the social media about relationship between Naqvi and late Ashok Singhal. They are saying that Naqvi is the Son-in-Law of Ashok Singhal.

That being the Son-in-Law of a powerful VHP leader may not be a problem. But, through this fact they want to say that Naqvi is associated with the BJP because of his marital relationship, not because of his ideology of nationalism and belief in the Idea of India.

Is Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi Son-in-Law of Ashok Singhal?
The short answer to this question is NO. There is no relationship between Naqvi and late Ashok Singhvi.

As a matter of fact, Ashok Singhal remained unmarried till his last breath. While pursuing Engineering from the prestigious BHU, he came in contact with the RSS. He became a pracharak and took …

Nishant, Son of Nitish Kumar: Profile

Nitish Kumar is currently making constant appearances in the national media. It is because of the upcoming Assembly election where he is directly challenging Narendra Modi. This is not the first time when he has challenged Modi. His previous attempt was a dismal failure during the last Lok Sabha election. However, this time the situation is little bit different. He has allied with Lalu Prasad Yadav and Congress party and hoping to stop the Modi juggernaut.

This article is about the son of Nitish Kumar.

Nitish Kumar is a widower, as you might know. He has only one son named Nishant Kumar, a media shy married man who is an alumnus of the prestigious BIT Mesra.

Profile of Nishant Kumar

It is quite surprising that the son of Nitish Kumar isn’t covered by the media. You will hardly find any news item related to him. Unlike other regional politicians like Lalu Yadav and Mulayam Singh Yadav, Nitish’ son has least interest in the politics, at least as of now.

It is quite surprising, indeed. The ma…
