Veteran sports journalist K R Wadhwaney no more

New Delhi, Oct 25 (PTI) Veteran sports journalist and author K R Wadhwaney died at his home here.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Wadhwaney, 90, was suffering from age related ailments and died on Thursday night at his home in Press Enclave, Saket.

The former journalist is survived by his wife Asha, daughter Sneh and son Rohit.

Wadhwaney’s daughter, a former national level swimmer, is married to former India wicketkeeper bastman Vijay Dahiya.

His cremation will take place at Lodhi Road electric crematorium on Friday.

Wadhwaney, who was born in Karachi (now in Pakistan), migrated to Lucknow after the partition in 1947.

He started his career in Lucknow before moving to New Delhi in the 1960s. He remained active as a sports journalist for almost 50 years.

After working in top organisations, Wadhwaney later went on to become the Sports Editor of the Indian Express newspaper.

He worked as a freelance writer for several Indian newspapers after his retirement.

Wadhwaney had also written 31 books on sports and its various aspects.
