UAE: Karnataka Journalists Felicitate Vijayalaxmi Shibaroor

UAE: It is easy to find litanies of the things wrong with journalism today or the treatises of rumors and reasons that it is dying, but when we hear about Vijayalaxmi Shibaroor, one of the noted female journalists who has played an important role in breaking many scams in sting operations in Karnataka, we know that true journalism is still alive.


On behalf of the Amateur and Working Karnataka Journalist unit Dubai, a felicitation function was organized to honour Vijayalakshmi Shibaroor at Fortune Plaza, Al Qusais recently in the presence of Sarvotham Shetty, Praveen Shetty and representatives of various media in the UAE.



After the felicitation, Vijayalakshmi said that she would cherish this unforgettable moment in her life as group of journalists honouring another journalist, without any professional ego. She also added that she chose journalism as a career as she wished to leave behind her own path to keep her identity rather follow the steps of others and that she feels proud to know that now some more people are following her footsteps.
