Veteran Communication professional Deepak Neogi is no more

Monday, 21 May 2018

Sad to share the news that our old friend, journalist-turned PR professional Deepak Neogi is more.
I had never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be penning obits for my close friends - first it was Parthasarathi Swami, managing editor of Business India, and now Deepak.
Deepak had stomach cancer that spread to other parts of his body. He breathed last around 8 PM yesterday.
Deepak (63) started his career as a journalist at Hitavada in Nagpur. He came to Mumbai to join Free Press Journal in 1977-78. He later joined UNI and  switched over to PR by joining INPUT (Information and Public relations Unit), a Reliance outfit under Mudra Communication.
He was actively involved in the launch of Reliance Infocomm under the leadership of Mukesh Ambani and remained with the company after Anil Ambani took it over.
Very friendly by nature, Deepak was known for his signature smile.
He was also associated with Public Relations Society of India (PRSI).
Our heartfelt condolences to his wife Sharmila and daughter Nandini.

Here are some condolence messages received to my Facebook post:
RIP Deepak
-Kingshuk Nag

Sharad Bailur Deeply deeply sorry to her this. What a blow. I don't have Sharmila's number, unfortunately. I can't even ring her. To say "My condolences" is so trite and inadequate Great personal friend though he was nine years younger than me. What a terrible thing to happen. I did not know about the stomach cancer.

Saddened to hear sudden and untimely death of our old good friend Deepak. We have a friendship of more than 20 years. Even I had a talk with him just one month back. He used to say that he was not keeping well, but never said about his on-going cancer treatment. May His soul rest in peace.
