On December 1, 2022, Ravish Kumar took to his YouTube channel and posted a video with the title, 'Maine NDTV se istifa de dia hai', in which he officially confirmed resigning from NDTV after Adani’s takeover. In the YouTube video, Ravish Kumar thanked his wife, Nayana Dasgupta for her constant support over all these years. The journalist admitted that his professional journey had experienced so many highs and lows over the years, just like any common person out there.
However, Ravish Kumar was lucky to have Nayana as his life partner, who pushed him and inspired him to take on new challenges. While thanking his wife, he also recalled the support he had received from his in-laws and also thanked them for helping him so that he could go out and report during his career. Ravish said:
"Kaam ke prati imaandaari, tik kar kaam karna aur peshe ki naitikta ki samaj mujhe apni mahila sahiyogiyo se mili hain. Aur maine unse chura bhi li hain. Meri es yatra mein bahut si samajhdar auratein aur ladkiyo ke anubhav shamil hain. Meri jeevansathi (Nayana Dasgupta) ka bhi, meri betiyo ka bhi, mere saas-sasur ne bahut saath dia taki main bahar jaake report kar saku. Meri maa meri bhabhi, mere parivar ke sadasyo ne bhi."
The senior journalist admitted that he is no longer a part of the news channel with which he had worked for almost 27 years. In his emotional video, Ravish recalled his journey at NDTV and shared how he was just a translator in the news channel at the beginning. The senior journalist also revealed that it was an emotional moment for him to bid farewell to NDTV, as it was more than just a workplace for him. Further in his YouTube video, Ravish opened up about his future plans and said:
"Ye ek YouTube channel banaya hain, Ravish Kumar Official. Aur Facebook page bhi hain Ravish Ka Page. Ese subscribe kijiyega. Ab main YouTube pe he nazar aaunga, NDTV India pe nahin. Kisi sanstha ke saath mariyada bahut alag hoti hain. Freelance aur aazad jeevan ki alag. Lekin es baar parivaar ke saath thoda waqt guzarna chahata hu, jeena chahata hu. Maine istifa de dia hain. Namaskar main Ravish Kumar, ab aapko us channel par sunai nahin dega. Namaskar main Ravish Kumar."
Talking about Ravish Kumar’s personal life, the senior journalist had met his wife, Nayana Dasgupta, during their college days and dated for years before eventually getting married. While Nayana is a Bengali and Ravish is a Brahmin, the couple continued dating, despite knowing their caste differences. Both lovers were confident that they would convince their respective families of their marriage, but it turned out to be completely opposite. After dating each other for seven years, Ravish Kumar and Nayana Dasgupta told their parents finally about their decision to get married.
However, both families rejected Ravish Kumar and Nayana Dasgupta’s decision to get married strictly and directly. It was a tough phase for the couple, who couldn’t live without each other and imagined marrying someone else. Despite their continuous efforts, Ravish's family didn't agree, after which he decided to leave his family for the love of his life. Thus, Ravish and Nayana got married after breaking all the ties with his family. The couple got blessed with two daughters after some years of their wedding.
