Shillong ( Meghalaya), Jan 12 : Senior journalist, Rajoo Sharma passed away on Wednesday at the Woodland Hospital here . He was 59 years old.
He is survived by his wife and son and daughter and grandchildren. His last assignment was with a news portal Hello Shillong and was the treasurer with the Shillong Press Club (SPC).
Sharma was not keeping well for the past three months.
He started his career in journalism with Meghalaya Guardian when it was launched. Initially he was in marketing side and then he started writing. He is contributed to both Meghalaya Guardian and Purbanchal Prahari. Subsequently he moved to Eastern Panorama and then started his own paper Eastern Eye. After that he moved to The Northeast Today.

The SPC in an emergent meeting condoled the sudden demise of Sharma. “Bah Rajoo will be remembered for his ever-endearing demeanor and humility though out his life. He was a guiding light to a lot of the journalists who are now well entrenched in their careers. His quiet motivational skills have gone a long way in shaping them into good journalists. His death leaves a void which is unfathomable as to who can refill it again,” the SPC said.
