Veteran journalist Prem Shankar Jha appointed Consulting Editor of Tehelka

Highly placed sources confirm that Tehelka has appointed veteran journalist and author Prem Shankar Jha as Consulting Editor. Jha is already associated with the Tehelka magazine as a columnist.

As is known, Tehelka lost two of its top editorial heads – Founder-Editor Tarun Tejpal and Managing Editor Shoma Choudhary – in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct against Tejpal leveled by a junior female staff of the magazine.

In the course of his career, Jha has worked with Hindustan Times, The Economic Times, Financial Express and The Times of India, among others.

He has also been associated with world bodies such as the United Nations, World Bank, and the Asia and Pacific Development Administration Centre of the UN for various projects.

He has also been a columnist for The Hindu, The Hindustan Times, and Business Standard, besides Tehelka. Incidentally, his latest column in Tehelka explains why ‘Tehelka is now bigger than any single individual’.

A prolific writer, Jha has authored several books including ‘India: A Political Economy of Stagnation’, ‘In the Eye of the Cyclone: The crisis in Indian Democracy’, ‘Kashmir 1947: The Origins of a Dispute’, ‘India & China: The Battle Between Soft and Hard Power’, and ‘Destruction of A Nation’, among others.
