With over two decades of experience in Hindi journalism, Narendra was the first journalist to expose godman Asaram Ram Bapu in the rape case of a minor girl from Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur district. He reported extensively on the case inspite of several threats and attempts on his life by Asaram’s followers. Undeterred by the attacks he filed roughly 287 reports on the case. Narendra has done his Masters of Arts in Hindi and is currently working as a Senior Sub-Editor at Hindi daily – Dainik Jagran. In 2000, he was awarded Utkrisht Yuva Purushkar [Youth Excellence Award] by Nehru Yuva Kendra for his work on farmers and youth.
