Sandeep Bamzai joins Financial Chronicle as Editor-in-Chief

Senior journalist Sandeep Bamzai has made a full-time comeback to journalism. “My domain expertise is business and economy. After having spent three years at Mail Today, I have joined Financial Chronicle as Editor-in-Chief,” Bamzai told exchange4media. 

At Financial Chronicle, Bamzai will work towards creating a smarter, reader-friendly newspaper. He stated that he has initiated some changes to that effect. “If you want to be reader-friendly then you cannot be verbose. You have to bring in the graphics and illustrative element,” said Bamzai.

He spent fifteen months away from journalism writing a book for Harper Collins titled “Princestan – How Nehru, Mountbatten and Patel foiled it”. Speaking of the book, he described the experience as satisfying.

“It was a satisfying and fulfilling period of my life. There is so much that I came to know. It was a great learning experience,” he said. With a word count of over 4,00,000 words, the book will talk about how royals in British India connived to create a third dominion besides India and Pakistan called “Princestan”.

The book intends to bring previously “unknown information” to the public domain. When exchange4media asked Bamzai about the Essar controversy that led to his departure from Mail Today, he said, “Out of a deep sense of propriety, I almost immediately resigned.”

“I must reiterate that there are people who have done far more serious things but they are still not taking a firm moral stand and clinging to their chair,” he added. He also claimed that he intended to leave Mail Today 3-4 months before he actually resigned due to certain reasons pertaining to the management of the newspaper.

Kranti Gada joined the family business at Shemaroo in 2006 after a successful stint of over two years in marketing at Pepsi Co. She has been associated with the company for 12 years.
