I am a multimedia journalist with a lot of 'Been there, Done that' stories. I report/blog/ videoblog and make documentaries on development and environment issues. Presently my own boss, I have earlier worked as a news reporter for ETV, MSN, was a media campaigner for Greenpeace and the Communications Director of Video Volunteers - world's largest community media organization.
As a journalist, I tell to the global audience, the unheard stories of marginalized communities. And when I am not working on a news story, you will find me talking about issues that affect our youth, especially our women. I am a part of Friedrich Ebert Stiftung - a global policy think tank that works to make heard the voice of the youth.
On the personal front, I am yet another Indian female child who survived by default :) At 2 years of age I had a bad case of Diphtheria and my family decided that it would be stupid to get me treated because, well, it was just another girl child! But my gritty mom fought hard, and I lived, to share this story with you. Along with me lives a butterfly shaped scar on my throat - the telltale sign of a crude surgery, plus, the struggle of female children in India.
