Heartbroken. Danish Siddiqui was supremely talented. A friend & someone who rightly ditched TV to embrace his true love, photography. Won a Pulitzer. Spoke to him just weeks ago for 📷 for my next book. Quiet & brave. Deepest condolences to his young family. Farewell, Danish. pic.twitter.com/vHSMl7Wqqm

Huge loss to journalism. Some iconic work on protests in India, Delhi riots, second wave. A remarkable chronicler of his times, Danish Siddiqui's work will live on for generations to come to learn and take inspiration from. Deepest condolences to his family, friends & colleagues. pic.twitter.com/7kYqtx0UBB
