Obituary — Sham Lal

The Times of India (February 24) did itself proud by devoting the entire editorial page of the day to the life and times of Sham Lal, its longest-serving editor (1967-1978) who passed away a day earlier. It is just as well that it did so considering that for almost twelve long years Sham Lal had become a brand name for ‘The Times of India’. He gave it a distinction that was unique in its own way.
