reported on major events in the Indian subcontinent
from the ’50s to the turn of the century. He has
worked with foreign broadcasters-like Gaumont

He has covered some of the most important
stories of post-Independence India, including the
1962 Indo-China war. He was at the forefront of
war coverage during the 1965 war against Pakistan,
climbing Haji Pir with the Indian Army and covering
the tank battle in the Sialkot sector, conducted by
General Rajinder Singh ‘Sparrow’ himself.

Prakash has interacted with every prime minister
of India and interviewed many of them on camera.
He is currently the chairman of ANI, India’s premier
multimedia news agency, which he helped set up.
