Rajasthan Patrika founder Karpoor Chand Kulish passes away

Rajasthan Patrika founder, Karpoor Chand Kulish, passed away on the morning of January 17. Kulish has left behind him a flourishing business, which today symbolises the spirit of righteous and purposeful journalism.

Kulish, 80, was born in Soda village of Rajasthan on March 20, 1926. His creative outbursts at the early stage later on made him an avid writer and his works were published in numerous books and magazines.

Kulish founded ‘Rajasthan Patrika’ on March 7, 1956. Despite some initial setbacks and humble beginnings, ‘Rajasthan Patrika’ made rapid progress through the hard work put in by Kulish. By 1978, the paper had garnered circulation in excess of 80,000 copies.

After a long and successful career spanning three decades, Kulish retired as an active contributor from ‘Rajasthan Patrika’ on March 20, 1986 at the age of 60. His work echoed even after his retirement. But, Kulish had set his works to a different route by then, his interest in spirituality was expressed through his contributions in the field of Vedic Sciences.

Amongst his numerous literary works are ‘America: Ek Vihangam Drishti’ and ‘Mein Dekhta Chala Gaya’.

The contribution that he made to the field of journalism also brought various laurels to Kulish. On March 20, 1990, he was conferred with the prestigious BD Goenka Foundation Award for outstanding contribution in the Indian language newspaper category for 1987.

In 1991, he was once again felicitated by then Prime Minister of India, Chandrashekar for influencing the national mainstream through his contributions, the occasion was the Golden Jubilee of All India Editor’s conference. He also received the Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi Award in 2000. The Hindi Sahitya Sammelan bestowed him with the highest honour of Prayag “Sahitya Vachaspati”.
