Adrienne Batra, Toronto Sun newspaper’s editor-in-chief, received the “Best Journalist Award” on Friday at ‘Parvasi Awards’ organised by the Parvasi Media Group.

The Parvasi Media Group established in 2005 to honour the accomplishments of successful Punjabi Canadians in various fields.

“The Indo-Canadian community has thrived in so many professions and it’s humbling to be acknowledged in the field of journalism,” Batra was quoted as saying by Toronto Sun.

Batra served as a lieutenant in the Canadian armed forces before joining the Toronto Sun in 2011.

Former Indian athlete Milkha Singh was the guest of honour at the ‘Parvasi Awards’.

  1. Congratulations! I always liked how she confronted Anjem Choudhary in one of the interviews earlier this year. I remember posting the link on this forum before. It is also fun to watch another great journalist Tarek Fatah (born in Pakistaan but a great admirer of Bharata).
