Gaurish is well known in the media industry and has spent over 16 years in the field of media. He is one of the rare professionals who gone through the full circle. From working in a media agency to a media company and to be a part of a large advertiser's media team, he has done it all.

It should be noted that Sakal Newspaper used innovation recently and the Pune edition went completely black and white for a day to announce its readers that the paper is turning all colour from tomorrow. This created a huge disruption and perhaps the first time a newspaper using such route to communicate its readers that the paper is turning completely colour.
