Another prominent person has been added to the list of deaths due to covid infection. The deceased is a veteran sports journalist Kishore Bhimani. He was 81 years old.
He has been undergoing treatment at Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata for the last one month. His wife Rita Bhimani and son Gautam Bhimani are present.
Bhimani, a resident of Kolkata, was one of the foremost figures in the world of Indian sports journalism due to his extraordinary knowledge and interest in any sport. He was long associated with the English daily The Stasman.
Not only sports journalism, but also as a novelist, Kishore Bimani has won the respect of the readers. His last published novel, The Accidental Godman, won critical acclaim.
A few years ago, Vimani was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by an organization. Ravi Shastri, Technical Director of Team India, discussed in detail the scope of knowledge of the veteran sports journalist about cricket. Reminds me how Kishore Vimani corrected the mistake by theoretically explaining it after playing a wrong shot in a Test in Eden.
Kishore Bimani‘s name has long been revered in Indian and international cricket. He had close personal relationships with multiple stars of twenty-two yards. He had a long association with the late ICC President Jagmohan Dalmiya. When the news of Kishore Bhimani’s death was published on Thursday, the shadow of mourning fell on the sports world.
West Bengal Trinamool MP Derek O’Brien has expressed his grief over the death of Kishore Bhimani on Twitter. He wrote, ‘Farewell Kishore Vimani. Cricket journalist and Kolkata lover.
