Writing and reporting on national security issues may arguably be one of the most challenging beats for a journalist, and my transition from a sports journalist to being TVON’s editor was not without effort. I designed content for ESPN STAR Sports and extensively covered tournaments nationally and internationally. I was also an investigative journalist for ZEE’s India’s Most Wanted. But I have been profoundly impacted by rising threats to India’s national security, resulting in loss of numerous lives. This has both saddened me and helped in reshaping my thought process. I’m acutely aware of the changing geopolitical dynamics today and never afraid to speak my mind. My interface with policymakers and national security experts gives me perspective and insight, helping me provide context and statistics to stories about terrorism and national security policy.
