“She is an extremely brave lady. We are proud of her as an anchor, but what happened today has left us in shock,” said a colleague.
Kaur, 28, has been a news anchor with IBC-24, one of Chhattisgarh’s most-viewed channels, for the past nine years. Hailing from Bhilai, she had married Harsad Kawade a year ago and the couple were residents of Raipur.
Kaur has left for the accident site. But back at office of the TV channel, her courage is dominating the conversations.
“She got a sense that it was her husband’s vehicle. She read the bulletin and only when she came out of the studio, she started calling her relatives,” a senior editor said.
The editor said the staffers had come to know that her husband was dead while she was reading the news. “But we did not tell her. We did not have the courage,” the editor explained.
In any case, Kaur’s courage is unmatchable.
