‘Help Melville De Mellow's wife'

Shantaram Naik, MP, on Tuesday pleaded in the Rajya Sabha that a lump-sum amount be granted to Coralie Emma De Mellow, widow of late Melville De Mellow who was an All India Radio icon once upon a time. Making a mention during the Zero Hour in the Rajya Sabha, Mr. Naik said that she was 95 and needed support. De Mellow carried an iconic stature as a commentator and news reader in AIR. He created a record with a non-stop account for seven hours from a van of AIR on Mahatma Gandhi's last journey, he said.
