Gangubai Hangal (1913-2009) and daughter Krishna (c. 1929-2004)Walter Cronkite takes the helm of Constitution 21 July 1997

Gangubai Hangal, the renowned Indian Classical singer, died on July 21, 2009. Twelve years earlier on the same day the revered anchorman Walter Cronkite, who died on July 17th, took the helm of USS Constitution in Massachusetts Bay. One common characteristic linking the two was their dignified and powerful voice. With her abundant courage Hangal overcame obstacles and prejudices as she galvanized audiences worldwide. During his life time Cronkite, the epitome of confidence, was known as “the most trusted man in America.”

Trust and history, who will tell it and how will it be told? So many virtual communities with various agendas have created a presence on the Internet and the mass media, as they broadcast all types of information presented as fact. More than ever in the history of humankind, trust and truth are at stake as professional journalists risk their lives for the nobel pursuit of exposing lies and changing misconceptions.
