So sorry to announce the shocking demise of Amala Thomas, MA class of 1992 today. I have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach even writing these words. I taught her batch and she was a brilliant student, getting the gold medal.

In 1995 she moved to Mumbai to work with Sony Entertainment Television and went on to achieve much in the TV industry for two decades. ‘Movers & Shakers’, a show handled by her, won the best show in the non-fiction category at the Asian Television Awards. In 2005 she moved on from Sony Entertainment Television to head television production companies. As a Creative Director, and later as a Creative Producer, she was a key person in the creation and production of TV shows for channels such as Star Plus, Zee TV, Sony Entertainment Channel, Doordarshan, NDTV Imagine, and 9X.

She had a bright smile and a very pleasant demeanour. She was always willing to come to the department to share her experiences. In fact, I have invited her for the last two years for the MA freshers' orientation programme. The picture here is from her interaction with the students in July 2016.

This is terrible news! I feel the loss at a personal level, but the department has lost a star alumnus. RIP Amala!
