MY NDTV DAYS : Anecdotes from the Life of a Journalist
The life of a television journalist can often be described as full of thrills and the rush of providing 'breaking news' can be inimitable. Throwing a contentious question to then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on his visit to Chennai, escorting an NDTV colleague who had just survived an LTTE attack in Colombo, out of the Chennai Airport, edgy encounters with Boris Becker or humorous ones with Rahul Dravid or Vishwananthan Anand, My NDTV Days presents engaging details of the art of chasing news. At the core of Sanjay Pinto's remarkable recounting of these interesting incidents, the life of a 24X7 journalist comes to the fore with all the unpredictable aspects of the profession.
Sanjay Pinto is a former Bureau Chief and Resident Editor of NDTV 24x7 and the former Executive Editor of NDTV Hindu. Now an Advocate at the Madras High Court, he writes columns and appears on prime time debates on national news channels.
