He was considered to be an extended arm of the state apparatus and according to another senior Indian journalist Harish Khare, Kuldip Nayar had fathered the genre of gossip journalism and he was first to practise “embedded journalism”.
In a write-up titled: “Scoops, And Vanishing Cream” that has appeared in “Outlook” Magazine in July 2012, Harish Khare wrote: “Undoubtedly, it could be granted, Kuldip Nayar is India’s most well-known journalist, and also a widely syndicated columnist. Just as the Beyond The Lines dust-jacket claims. Equally undoubtedly, KN (Kuldip Nayar) can be credited with two innovations.
