Nilay Dave has worked with me as part of the crack team which launched two 24 Hour broadcast channels.
He managed the area assigned to him in the Broadcast Operations which required mastery over the subject of "faultless" round the clock transmission.

He was always there with a smiling face to ensure that the channel is up & running and never gave me a reason to complain.

Zee / Operations Head
Nilay was a senior video editor during my tenure at STAR News. He was creative yet practical in his approach to delivering assignments for the news channel.
Given his skill set and his wonderful inter-personal approach, he was a natural choice for special assignments like events, elections and shows.

Vynsley Fernandes
Star News / Operations Head
I always remember Nilay as a hard working, sincere and competent professional, who always strived for making value addition in his work. He has always given his best. As his colleague and supervisor, I found him very creative and expert in all aspects of Video Editing, Camera and Script Writing.

Although, his responsibility was only to video edit our number one crime based show "Red Alert", but he also directed in shooting all recreations required for the show. Very often he also contributed in script writing too.
He has ability to develop good inter personal relations with people within organization and that's why he was also a very good Team Leader. Nilay was in-charge of Editing Department and he was responsible for giving daily work assignments and shift management of all Video Editors,which he did it successfully with smooth operation.
I wish him all the best for his future endeavors.

Jitendra Dixit
Chief of Bureau-Mumbai - Star News and Star Majha
Nilay Dave is a very creative and hard working person. While he worked at Radio Asia Nilay wrote and produced his own shows and they were very well accepted by our listeners.

I wish him great success in his life...

Gandhiji My Mentor

"Gandhiji My Mentor" is a fictional story of Chandrabhan Upadhyay. The story is set during British Empire in 1940s. The British Government was terrified at the name of that ravenous barbarian. Death prevailed wherever his evil shadow fell. He was a successful businessman of foreign clothes but due to Gandhiji's quit foreign goods movement (Swadeshi) he lost everything. His wife Purnima was a ardent follower of Gandhiji. On August 8th 1942, when Gandhiji announced 'Do or Die' movement, eight months pregnant Purnima not only took part in do or die movement, but she also lead the march protesting at district magistrate office in Nadiad (Gujarat, India). Unfortunately, she was one of the protesters who died on that day in police firing. Chandrabhan became a ravenous barbarian and hated Gandhi for all his misfortunes. Haunted by British Government for the violent bomb blasts, Chandrabhan trespassed into Gandhiji's Bungalow at Juhu (Mumbai, India), with only one intention of killing Gandhiji. And then the drama unfolds, when Untruth challenges Truth, Non-Violence is pitted against Violence, Righteousness is attacked by Unrighteousness, Love is crushed into pieces by animosity. An amazing drama unfolds between the two before it's "dawn.
