Om Thanvi, senior journalist: A tribute

सुबह की किरण में आज उजाला नहीं। अलस्सबह मित्रवर अपूर्वानंद ने चेन्नई से सूचित किया कि नीलाभ मिश्र नहीं रहे। वे अपोलो अस्पताल में चिकित्सा के लिए भरती थे। पर कुछ रोज़ से हताशा भरे संकेत मिलने लगे थे। इसके बावजूद सुबह उनके निधन की ख़बर किसी सदमे की तरह ही मिली।

नीलाभ कम बोलने वाले पत्रकार थे, सौम्य और सदा मंद मुस्कान से दीप्त। लेकिन उनका काम बहुत बोलता था। जब पत्रकारिता में सरोकार छीजते चले जा रहे थे, नीलाभ ने सरोकार भरी पत्रकारिता की। आउटलुक हिंदी को उन्होंने ढुलमुल शक्ल से उबारते हुए जुझारू तेवर दिया। साहित्य-संस्कृति से भी उनका अनुराग गहरा था, जो कम पत्रकारों में दिखाई देता है। पिछले साल उन्होंने नेशनल हेरल्ड के प्रधान सम्पादक का ज़िम्मा संभाला था। सीमाओं के बावजूद वहाँ भी उन्होंने कई अनुष्ठान अंजाम दिए।

उनकी साथी-संगिनी कविता श्रीवास्तव के दुख का अंदाज़ा मैं लगा सकता हूँ। वे नागरिक अधिकारों के लिए लड़ने वाली दबंग महिला है। नीलाभ का जाना उन्हें सबसे ज़्यादा तकलीफ़ देगा। पर उनका संघर्ष इससे विचलित न होगा। नीलाभ नहीं होंगे, पर स्मृति की भी अपनी ताक़त होती है।

भारत के सीनियर सहाफी व हमारे मेहबान साथी अब नही रहे।

।अशफाक कायमखानी।

जयपुर।

भारत के जाने माने सीनीयर सहाफी व हमारे मेहरबान नीलाभ मिश्रा के आज सुबह साढे सात बजे चेन्नई के अपोलो अस्पताल मे आखीरी सांस लेते हुये दूनीया से विदा हो जाने से सभी का झटका व गहरे दूख का अहसास करा गये है।

अनेक अखबारात के साथ साथ आऊट लूक (हिन्दी) के सीनियर ऐडीटर रहने वाले मिश्रा नीलाभ के इस तरह चले जाने से पत्रकार जगत के साथ साथ सामाजीक कार्यकर्ताओ मे गहरी शोक की लहर पाई जा रही है।

इस दूख की घड़ी मे हम सब कवीता श्रीवास्ताव सहित तमाम शोकाकुल परीवार जनो के साथ खड़े है। साथ ही उनको खिराजे अकीदत पेश करते है।

Neelabh Bhai's untimely death is a great loss to the Indian media, pro-people journalism and struggle for democracy. He is gone when he was infusing new life to the National Herald and Navjivan restoring to these print media icons past credibility and mass appeal. We will miss him immensely. My condolences to his family, the National Herald family and his friends.

The loss of Neelabhji is unbearable for all of us who had the privilege to know him -- I cannot even imagine how devastating it must be for all of you who have been so close to him.  At this juncture, it is a historic loss that will negatively affect the course of our political history. We will derive strength and inspiration from his love and friendship, his thoughts, ideals and work.
