“Passionate and compassionate”

“Arun is one of the most observant, conscientious, and ethics-driven journalists I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. If you want any news topic—from politics to crime to human interest—covered carefully, thoroughly, and without bias, he’s your guy. What’s more, he’s extremely passionate and compassionate, throwing his all and then some into any project he sets his mind to. From completing multiple marathons to providing well-considered career advice to his journalist peers, Arun epitomizes both the coach and teammate you’d be lucky to have on your side.”
