Ravish Kumar, NDTV: Profile, Wife and Family

Hate him or love him, but you can’t ignore Ravish Kumar. He is the undisputed king of Hindi news journalism in India. He is the face of NDTV 24X7. Majority of Right Wingers hate him for his relentless reporting against Narendra Modi Government. However, if you look his reporting during Manmohan Singh Government, he was equally an anti – establishment journalist.

Ravish Kumar is accused of being selective in reporting. That is true to an extent. He was soft on Akhilesh Yadav Government. He is soft on Mamata Banerjee Government. However, he keeps on attacking any BJP Government.

Following are some profile details of Ravish Kumar:

Personal Life:
Name: Ravish Kumar
Nick Name: Chhenu (by RW on Social Media)
Date of Birth: 5th December, 1974
Age: 45 Years
Birthplace: Jitvarpur Village, Champaran, Bihar

Educational Qualification:
-         School: Basic schooling from Government primary school in Jitvarpur. High School from Loyola School, Patna

College: Deshbandhu College, Delhi University (Graduation and Post Graduation). At that time, there used to be no reservation for OBC and cracking Civil Services for Bihari upper castes, like Bhumihar, Kayastha, Rajput and Brahman, was a cake walk. You can find lots of senior IAS officers from Bihar belonging to these four castes. In fact, just taking a room in Dr. Mukerjee Nagar used to imply that the certain Bihari has become an IAS officer.

Ravish started the preparation for Civil Services while doing BA. But, the sudden implementation of Mandal Commission made it tough. He was not prepared for this and hence decided to continue with post graduation from same college.

Ravish Kumar has done diploma in mass communication from the prestigious Indian Institute of Mass Communication, New Delhi.

Caste: Brahmin (many says that he is a Bhumihar by caste. However, that is not true).

Relationship Status: Ravish Kumar got hooked up with Nayana Dasgupta, a Bengali girl, while doing Graduation. Nayana was studying in Indraprastha College. He later tied the knot with Nayana. The marriage created a sort of havoc in his family. He had become a sort of untouchable for his extended family members. In fact, he is still not invited in family functions precisely because of the marriage.

Ravish Kumar has always been in deep love with Nayana. The battle he fought against his orthodox family members changed his mind forever and since then he has started to raise voice against casteism and communalism.

News and Controversies: Ravish Kumar has won Ramon Magsaysay Award for 2019. This Award is considered equivalent to that of Nobel Prize in Asia.

Ravish Kumar ran a successful series on Government jobs – Central and State level – in 2018 – 19, including that of Railway. His series on job is highly successful. That has been a lethal attack on the Government of the day. Railway was compelled to release notification for huge recruitment drive. BPSC got streamlined and working on Calendar. UPPSC has started to show potential. Only JPSC and JSSC remained defunct.

Family Details:
-         Spouse/Husband: Nayana Dasgupta
-         Children: One son and one daughter
-         Siblings: It is said that Ravish Kumar’s brother Brijesh Pandey was involved in sex racket in Patna. Brijesh is alleged to be cousin of Ravish Kumar. He is a senior Congress leader. Ravish has never uttered any word against or for Brijesh.

Salary and Net Asset: Ravish Kumar gets Rs. 3 Crores per annum. He is also making huge money from sponsored events and programs. He is getting lump sum royalty from his books. However, his net asset is not known.

Interesting Facts:

Ravish Kumar once got a guard fired at NDTV. The fault of the guard was that he didn’t salute Ravish when he had entered the office. This was disclosed by his former colleague Sushant Singh in an open letter.
