Obituary/Parth Sharma

Parth Sharma, an alumnus of ACJ (class of 2017-18) died on Saturday December 1, 2018 in New Delhi after a month long hospitalization for treatment of pancreatic ailment.

Parth was a gifted writer with very good multimedia skills, a diligent reporter, and a sensitive newsperson. He had an attitude that would melt any teacher’s heart. His passing away within months of being placed with News18.com, and when he was still finding his way into the world of journalism is a cruel game of fate.

The faculty at the ACJ is at a loss for words. His quiet, understated presence in classes, his humble smile when his work was appreciated and his strong support combined with subtle enthusiasm while working in a team had left a deep impression in our hearts.

“Parth was one of the most promising talents that we had hired from the ACJ campus earlier this year,” Binoy Prabhakar, a senior editor of News 18.com, has said.

Parth is no more. His work lives on.

The ACJ mourns his loss.
