“She lights up the place with her charisma and charm but don’t be mistaken, this girl is not just a pretty face! She walks her talk. From blogging to reporting, to breaking stories and being on national as well as international television – she has done it all.”, that’s how one of my ex-colleague-turned-friend Jhinuk describes me. Ahem! But I choose not to settle down with just some of the praise, hence, read on 😛
Conventionally, in the records, I have a degree in in Journalism and Mass Communication. I started off as a trainee journalist at the Times of India Sports desk. Then came NDTV online where I worked as a Sub Editor, Sports. Online portal exchange4media saw me essaying the role of Senior Correspondent where I covered Advertising, Marketing, Brands and Digital. Thereon, Zee Business got me on-board as an Anchor/Assistant Producer where I added another feather to my cap by taking up the challenge to work for Zee’s international channel for US audience in the same profile simultaneously.
I freelanced for Doordarshan quite a few times before turning to media full-time. The events industry is also not new to me. My work appetite pushed me to work as an independent professional as early as in the last year of my college.
Phew! So bookish, ain’t it? 😛
Now know the real deal…
Unconventionally, I am on a life tripping mode! Learning and knowledge-seeking are on top of the list. Travelling, blogging, tweeting, instagraming, living it up! An eternal optimist who believes in writing her own story with each passing day.
I have also learned Zumba, a fitness-based dance program, officially and am a five-time Delhi half-marathon finisher 🙂 Also, dogs and underdogs supporter. 😀
Not so humbly put, in Marilyn Monroe’s words, “Beneath make-up and behind the smile, I’m just a girl who wishes for the world.” 😉
P.S (Present Status) – I have recently concluded an online show with Dainik Bhaskar Group’s online arm DB Digital as Anchor & Head of Special Projects. It’s India’s first candid CXO video talk show called ‘DB Spotlight‘ where the top honchos of India get candid about their personal as well as professional lives.
Also, not so long ago, I launched my own portal called ‘Gorgeous Wanderer’, where I believe – You and I, in our own gorgeous ways are seeking, wanting, exploring, caring, daring, inspiring, mostly, feeling… it is a happy, positive portal where, I am the story… You’re The Story!
