Mumbai, Jan 29 (UNI) NDTV features Editor Sutapa Deb has been honoured with the 'Commonwealth Broadcasting Association-Thomson Foundation Journalist of the Year' award at the CBA's Broadcasting Awards for 2008 in Nassau, Bahamas.
''There are thousands of stories waiting to be told. Often I wish there was a little less cynicism and a lot more idealism. Stories come and go before people can understand the context. And because of this, we have failed to deepen our understanding about a number of vital issues our society is facing,'' Ms Sutapa said.
Apart from the CBA- Thomson Foundation Journalist Award, Ms Sutapa has also won the Indian Telly Award for best documentary of the year for her documentary ''Unsung Heroes of the Gujarat Earthquake'' in 2002, and the Ramnath Goenka award for excellence in journalism in 2006.
Besides Ms Sutapa, NDTV Labs has been awarded the CBA award for ''Innovative Engineering'', a release stated.
