Bio:

I thank all those who said ‘no’ to me, it is because of them I did it myself. I am a journalist and have worked in different media organisations including India Today and Scoop Whoop. During my six year career I reported on Defence and Security, Politics, Human Rights, Health and Environment.

I had a brief stint as a communication officer with Hyderabad based NGO ‘COVA’ where I worked with the poor sections of society to help them uplift their standard of living.

I like to read books and play cricket. An adventurous person, I like to explore the unexplored parts of the country and the world. Having the urge to report the untold stories of people since childhood, I have been working for betterment of downtrodden people and carve out ways and options to help uplift their standards of life.

AD fellowship has given me an opportunity to work the people I always wanted to work with. During my fellowship I am hopeful to give my best at any time and in every circumstances. Rain or no rain, I am always on my job.
