Dilip Bobb

  Dilip Bobb is Group Editor, Features & Special Projects. Before joining the Indian Express, he had a long stint with India Today news magazine, being a key member of the launch team. He has covered politics, foreign affairs, defence and current events, among other topics, but also established the magazine's stylebook. His assignments have taken him to war zones like Afghanistan and Tamil Tiger-held Sri Lanka apart from covering two Olympic Games and important domestic events, from the Emergency to the Shah Commission and the assassination of Indira Gandhi, as well as historic turning points like Rajiv Gandhi's visit to China. In between, there were pleasant diversions into Bollywood and haute cuisine and haute couture, but its the journalistic hotspots that remain defining moments.
