People like Ashwini Minna do not die, they remain alive through writing – Rajat Sharma
On this occasion, Rajat Sharma, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of India TV, remembering Ashwini Chopra, said – ‘For me, Ashwini was a true friend, with whom I used to laugh openly. There was a pleasant atmosphere wherever Ashwani used to sit. Whenever we went out, Minna’s mischief would start on the plane itself. We went to New York when Atal ji was the Prime Minister. Took to the Twin Tower and said that we cannot build such a building. Ashwani Minna told me that we should earn enough money to buy both the towers. When the Twin Towers fell, Ashwini called me and said that the Twin Towers had fallen. Rajat Sharma said that people like Ashwani Minna do not die, they remain alive through their writing. My sister Kiran is handling Ashwini’s legacy very smoothly.
Ashwani ji’s writing was sharp – Rajnath Singh
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said that as told by Rajat ji, I also say that Ashwani was a human being with a warm heart. The release of Ashwani ji’s book ‘Rom Rom Mein Ram’ at this time is important in itself, the whole country has become Ram-may. Yes, the consecration is going to happen in Ram temple in Ayodhya after four days. If Ashwani ji were alive today, he would definitely have gone to Ayodhya for his life’s sacrifice. The sharpness that was in the writing of Ashwani ji is also there in the writing of her son Aditya Chopra. On the death anniversary of Ashwani ji, Kiran Chopra ji is distributing loans to poor women. Institutions like Chaupal are very important for developed India, till now Chaupal has helped forty thousand people, has given them loans, and its return is about 98 percent, this is a big thing. The fourth generation of Punjab Kesari is doing excellent work.
