Bengaluru, 13 Sep 2017: A special edition of Gauri Lankesh Patrike was released on Tuesday dated September 30, 2017, in tabloid form. The last edition, issue number 24 was released on August 30, 2017, and targeted Amit Shah. Issue number 25 was about Yeddyurappa while issue 26 was about to release on September 7 but that did not happen as she was murdered.


When BM spoke to Gauri’s writers in Lankesh office, her colleague Arun Kumar said, “We could not go ahead with that edition because Gauri was murdered, and hence work was affected. We held back that edition or rather skipped that issue.”


The special edition which was released on Tuesday morning was written and edited in just 30 hours. The special edition goes out as an obituary to its editor, Gauri Lankesh, and reads, “My voice cannot be silenced”.

The special edition is mostly written by family members of Gauri. In its first story, Gauri’s mother Indira Lankesh has written about Gauri as a daughter who fearlessly wrote what she had to and talks about her personality. In its second story, Kavitha Lankesh, sister of Gauri, has highlighted how Gauri led her life through childhood to becoming an editor of the newspaper and the issues she covered.


Not just that, Kavitha’s story talks about why Gauri had a boy cut and why she was adamant about it. The next story is from Isha Lankesh, and how she goes on talking about how she used to call Gauri “Avva” (mother in Kannada) and how Isha started the habit of reading.


The most celebrated column is the ‘Kandahaage’ (As I see) which is an editorial. Though Gauri is no more, this piece is still written on behalf of her, which talks about a lot of issues on how she would have felt by getting killed. This piece is written in a first person account.


Chidananda Rajghatta, her ex-husband, too has contributed to the special edition.
