I have completed 25 years in active Television today. On exactly this day 25 years ago, 8/8/88, I had joined Doordarshan as an Assistant News Correspondent. I had left my PTI job but I never imagined that my journey will bring me to the point I am in my life today.
I want to thank all my Gurus in media & television for making me what I am today. I also want to thank my friends in the media and elsewhere who have travelled with me through this journey, always encouraging and inspiring me to strive for more.
I feel blessed yet I know there is still so much left that needs to be accomplished. Television as a medium of information is slated for a big change. Will we be able to do it? Do we have what it takes to stand in the face of populism and still make the difficult choices? I have made a pledge to myself today, to continue to make tough decisions, to stand by my ideals and to steer Television as a medium of information to greater heights.
