After 15 years of a dog-eat-dog existence, I decided to reconfigure my life and focus on things which I consider my real areas of interest. Currently, I juggle between three engagements – India Correspondent for Committee To Protect Journalists, Core Committee member of Impulse NGO Network Model Press Lab and volunteer as the Spiritual Programme Coordinator at Root Institute, Bodhgaya.
As India Correspondent of CPJ, it is my job to track Press Freedom violations in the country. I’m engaged in reporting, advocating and training journalists on the important issues related to journalists’ safety and security.
At the Impulse NGO Network Model Press Lab, I act as a consultant to promote wider press coverage of human trafficking-related stories. I mentor Impulse Model Press Lab fellows on their stories.
I also volunteer as the Spiritual Programme Coordinator at Root Institute, Bodhgaya. Root Institute is a semi-monastic Buddhist centre that offers short and long term courses on various aspects of Tibetan Buddhism. It is affiliated to Foundation for Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition.
In my previous avatar, I was an editor/journalist with media companies like Tehelka, Indian Express, Rajasthan Patrika, DNA and Vice Media.
