An internal email sent by Abhijit Pawar, managing director, Sakal Media Group, read: "In a short period of time, Jwalant's contributions to our group have been appreciated and applauded, both within the group and the sector. Not only has he been instrumental in putting an excellent team in place, but also inducted all of them in a seamless manner to perform well, thereby complimenting the group vision."

He further stated in the note: "While Jwalant has helped us establish a sound foundation for Sakal, he has also got me to actively participate in the group and interact more with all the business leaders. One of his key initiatives was to identify a list of successors for various positions, which he has managed to complete in a short span of almost three quarters. This has made us ready to deliver our strategic vision and firmly placed us on the growth trajectory."

Tight-lipped about his next role, Swaroop says, "It was a great experience building the team at Sakal. I now want to play a lot of golf." He joined the Sakal Media Group from Oshoyana Consultants, where he was the CEO for two and a half years. Before that, he was the COO at Lokmat Media for more than a year.
