After Nalini Singh, only one face remembered from Doordarshan's news and that was Neelam Sharma. We watched them reading news on TV for many years. She had a different style of speaking and dress, which was probably the reason that she was able to make her place in the minds of the beholder. #Rip #neelamsharma Picktvitrkcom/X8tOIdC3yy- Anshumaan Vishnu (@StartupsWala) August 17, 2019
