Malayala Manorama's The Week names Barkha Dutt as Contributing Editor

In yet another role, Barkha Dutt will now don the mantle of Contributing Editor at Malayala Manorama’s weekly English magazine, The Week. Following her departure from NDTV in mid-January, Dutt signed up with Quintillion Media to cover the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. The previous year was quite an eventful one for the popular journalist who gained acclaim following her coverage of the Kargil war in 1999.

Not only did she move on from NDTV after having spent 21 years with the broadcaster but also co-founded The Print, a news media start-up alongside Shekhar Gupta. In October, she joined Washington’s Post elite line-up of opinion writers as a contributing columnist to the ‘Global Opinions’ section.
A founding member of the think tank Ideas Collective, Dutt’s forays into digital come after she turned author with the publication of This Unquiet Land: Stories from India’s Fault Lines.
