In a Twitter post that has gone viral because it was shared on Saturday, Ms Rajagopalan’s father can be seen congratulating his daughter with a basic, “Well done.”

In the screengrab shared by the journalist, her father wrote, “Congratulations Megha. Mom just forwarded me. Pulitzer Prize. Well done.” To this Ms Rajagopalan replied, “Thanks!!” Sharing the photo, she wrote, “Understated Indian dad reaction.”
