Mrinal Pande, veteran journalist, author and TV personality was honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award at Red Ink Awards 2014. In her acceptance speech, Pande said that in today’s world where intellectual has become a four-letter word, this award from her fraternity came as a pleasant surprise.

She also said that she learned other languages/dialects such as Bhojpuri, Avadhi, Brij etc. as her father moved extensively around the Hindi-speaking belt.
