Bio:

I am a Bhopal-based journalist who has experienced citizen activism and imbibed ideas of democratic reform and progressive social change in the last four years. This period of discovery was preceded by the restlessness and frustration I'd long felt while working for corporate media employers which in India, I now understand, are a lovely example of Herman-Chomsky propaganda model. India is badly in need of democratically-run, progressive media organisations to save whatever is left of our democratic institutions which are being destroyed by the powerful and the privileged. My deepest desire is to be a part of one of such alternative media platforms which will challenge the empire of false propaganda that currently reigns. My desire is also to see people of India moving towards becoming a more educated, critical, introspective, progressive and enlightened society.
