Padma Shri VD, Padma Shri RDS, Padma Shri BD

Three Indian television journalists have been included in this Republic Day honours’ list, marking a coming of age of the medium in a country where print journalists have traditionally hogged the limelight.

Independent television consultant Vinod Dua, CNN-IBN founder and editor-in-chief Rajdeep Dilip Sardesai, and NDTV managing director Barkha Dutt are among the 71 awardees being decorated this year with the nation’s fourth highest civilian honour, the Padma Shri.
