The media committee convener, Press club President and Senior sports journalist  Kamal Varadoor spoke to the CNM from the Media Gallery of  the 61st National School Athletic Meet at Rahman Stadium. When asked why he is so passionate in writing sports columns, he said that sports was his all time favorite.

“When I was studying in Calicut University, I was in the football team” he said.

He was always very fond of the sports field and so developed an interest in writing on sports, later. His early works were published by Kerala Kaumudi and Chandrika newspapers.
Kerala people are crazy in sports-he said.

When asked how he managed to organize the media committee for such huge sports meets; he replied, ” The generation is being developed day by day and we are focusing to adapt with latest technology.”

He said that the way of reporting and capturing has changed a lot, old days were much different. Nobody was allowed  to enter  the play ground. Technology has taken over everything.Changes are expressive everywhere.
When asked on his views on the upcoming generation of journalists, he said that the only disadvantage in young journalists is that they are not much outgoing.

“They sit in the news room and write from there itself. Coming out in the sun and feeling the heat with the player gives more experience to the journalist and creates a bond between the journalist and the players.”

When asked about his future plans he said that he would be covering the next Olympics in Brazil.
