Reporter’s Diary: 732 days and still counting...

My normal day starts with getting wakeup calls from PR people pertaining to follow ups, irrelevant pitches and many a times just to say a hello. It pumps me with a lot of energy; after all, while travelling in Mumbai locals all you can do is attend a few calls to pass your time.

Meanwhile, my phone flashes mail alerts. Some days I jump with joy seeing my stories on the top. On some other days, I have a grin on my face after seeing that I have done a better job than our competition, and then there are some days when these competitive bunch of people make me feel horrible by doing a breaking news before me. Well, that happens rarely, but I still keep a count of it and make sure I give them a fitting reply by doing even better reports.

By the time I enter the office, hunger hits me hard. While I go around in office to drop a ‘hey’ to everyone, I also make sure that we all are sorted for lunch and evening snacks. Then I get on to my daily ‘chasing’ task. This is followed by replying to emails, sending out requests for inputs, handling deadline pressures and most importantly, thinking hard to be different.

Getting a reader’s feedback makes my day, while getting a stinker on not cracking a story makes me more aggressive. Rushing from one part of the city to the other has made life turn into a race that I would always want to win. From a rookie reporter to a confident thinker – I think I have come a long way. Days now don’t look alike. Every day is a bright new one. More than learning about the facts and figures, it is the people out there who have helped me to be what I am.

It has been 732 days since I have associated with exchange4media, and I am still counting for many more successful days ahead...
