It’s not just a college, NSoJ is family. You know we can barge into Balram Sir’s office at any point of the day. He was the Resident Editor of The Times of India and you don’t get such opportunities in normal colleges. No surprise then that I have the opportunity to do my internship at The Times of India!
From NsoJ I learnt that there’s no one view about anything. There are various colours and different shades. That is what I’m going to take with me.
I’ve learnt the technical side of journalism which I had no clue about. I think I’ve learnt to deal with people better, which is important.
So it’s a different insight that we get while dealing with the faculty and that’s what I find exciting.
Getting an internship in NDTV, I say it was not surprising at all but I sort of expected this with the faculty that we have, all eminent journalists of leading national media outlets. I mean, when you have faculty like that your standards are already set very high.
I love NSoJ because it's not just a classroom setting, its 80% field work and 20% class work.
Thanks to NSoJ, I’ve been able to meet and interact with top officials in society like the Pakistani High Commissioner and Karnataka Lokayukta.
