I've noticed that some senior officers have their favourites amongst the Indian journalists.
There is also a seeming increase in events these days, though that could be due to the time of the year (Delhi is hot these days) and a new government in place. One such happening was a talk by former Indian Chief Election Commissioner SY Quraishi. The grand Gandhi Hall was packed out and Quraishi held the audience with a kind of magnetism. His personality and delivery lifted this event away from the normal standard and made it fun.
Report here; Quraishi does good interviews, too.
