This article got amazing response. Cable guys from all over the country called me as they wanted to get trained and expand their knowledge.

What I like about this story is that it is very original. Learning new languages has always fascinated me and these management students are really lucky to have them in their curriculum.

A very inspiring story. It supports and initiates registration for voting which I support and agree with. So VOTE NOW!!!

This article is one among the most inspiring interviews with international professors and deans. Dezso Horvath, was kind enough to halt his lunch and agree for the interview.

On your right is the "desparate times calls for desparate measures" story.
I and my colleague Gauri where running all over to get quotes from reluctant schools and busy teachers. However, it was quiet impressing to see what schools are doing to be SAFE!!

I didn't want to go for this story and found it extremely boring until of course I saw what it was about. Working on this artical gave me a totally different outlook towards education and its real use for individuals.

After a week long holiday for my MA (English Lit) exams I return wanting more vacation. But, instead i was pressd for story ideas to save myself in the edit meet.

Then Stefan comes along to my rescue. Yes! he came to the office to meet my editor and I ended up taking this really interesting and informative interview.

Like everybody else, I always look up to people who belong to the higher institutions of learning like the IIM and IITs. These three IIMs really impressed me as they are fresh graduates who ditched placements and jumped into enterpreneurship helping people understand the financial world.

Especially, after the recent terror attack on Mumbai, this article holds a lot of significance in our quest of finding peace.

I don't know about IIT but this article surely had a punch on my new editor. It was the first lead story (which he had read) on his first production day and I was enjoying a vacation in Goa( approved by the executive editor). After my return the editor said that I "have an eye for topical stories and must keep it up". Point well taken!
This story is very close to my heart, as it addresses women's education. It's really commendable that the corporates are giving the fairer sex a fair chance. I got tremendous response for this story. I received calls from women who wanted to be a part of these programmes, even on my vacation in Goa immediatley after the publishing of this article.

I had to cover this event on September 24, which happens to be my Birthday. What more could I ask for on my birthday, but a presscon followed by lunch at The Trident—Malabar Room, Rooftop, overseeing the Arabian Sea.

Meeting this pretty lady, who is a grandmother ( doesn't look even a bit) was a privilege. I spoke to her over lunch, it was a delightful chat both on professional and personal grounds.

Mumbai, Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Yet another inspiring story of my life. It was the longest interview of my life—it lasted for two hours. Hinal Shah is a lady with a vision to create enterpreneurs, which will solve India's chronic problems. I completely support her cause and look forward to a self dependent and problem free society.
Cheers to Hinal!

My first story with my namesake. It all happened by chance, we both had the similar needs and decided to make it a joint story. Little did we know it would go as a lead.
It was fun working with Nayak.

I really adore the Jaagore.com team. Not only for their initiative but also for the great people that they are.

This was my attempt to bring out the views amidst the brief communal frenzy.

It was like attending a Maharashtrain function. Everything was in pure "Shudh Marathi", which I was literally translating with all my little marathi acumen. Jai Maharashtra!

Mumbai, Tuesday, October 14, 2008 p22

A truly Delhi istyle story. Had to call ten different people and then finally got my leads.

This is in support of the MoDArt article. Too bad I missed Corrine, as I was busy in other assignments. Had to do an email interview.

A very impressive leap for the Indian education system. Finally! Paris comes to India. Bienvenue!

I had to wait for almost an hour to meet Zupan. He humbly apologised for the same which was quiet surprising for me.

Exploring the B Schools with Gauri was a great experience. Our second story together, this was among the best stories we have done together.

Mumbai, Tuesday, February 26, 2008

One of the best and the most memorable stories of my career. I the Wilson alumni majorly comprising of people in their 80s and 90s. Reminiscing about their college days with them was worth it for a Saturday evening.
Meeting Mr Heal was a wonderful experience. He was impressed with India and Indians—with their commitment and values. I hope I get to interview him again in my career.

For a self confessed music afficinado like me, exploring the power of its waves and rhythm to heal certain disabilites was a real eye opener. Thank you Boss (Uma) for assigning me this story.
