Vincent D’ Souza
I have been a journalist since 1980. (Studied at St. Anthony’s, Egmore – 1965 – ’77 – and at Loyola, Madras – 1977 – ’81) I reported for The Week magazine of the Malayala Manorama and was a stringer for BBC Radio. I have been involved in the launch/ editorial and management of many Chennai-based, free-circulation, English community newspapers – Anna Nagar Times, Adyar Times, Mylapore Times and Arcot Road Times. Today, they are leading newspapers in their own right. I also promoted KutcheriBuzz.com, a web site for classical music and dance. I am also the promoter of two other major events in Madras – the Mylapore Festival held in Mylapore on Pongal eve and the Madras Day celebrations held to celebrate the founding of this south Indian city. When I find time, I also teach journalism and write.
