Professional Experience:
Being a journalist, I have gained experience and keenly witnessed the grass root realities in various sector - from government dealings to work done by private sectors.

Have worked in Gujarat and Rajasthan; witnessed and personally experienced the transitional phases that these states went through in the past two decades, which was much in sync with India’s growth as one of the biggest economies in the world. My work profile gave me a close picture of key developments like India, particularly Gujarat emerging as a global destination for lucrative investments while Rajasthan gained a never-before political relevance.

In the past 20 years, I have had more than a glimpse and worked to highlight several social issues which affect the development of a society - be it the sex ratio, drop out among school students, unemployment, poverty, inadequate health facilities, the rising drinking problem to name a few.

As a political correspondent, I have closely followed the political developments and governments and their works.


My job profile includes mentoring, encouraging and supporting my team of reporters and co-ordinaing with various members of other teams on a regular basis.

While my job has been challenging and to a large extent enlightening, I am now looking forward to a larger role and more challenging opportunities.
