Becoming a very responsible journalist was never my aspiration... or rather becoming anything wasn’t my ambition at all... it was always the most comfortable answer I had for those perennial… wat do you aspire to become? And rite from my schooling… the most common answers doctors et engineers... never caught my admiration! I remember when one guy... a school kid at that age... from my class... right! Deepak… broke the monotony and answered… “I want to become a police… I want to serve the nation… make the nation free from corruption!”… that was a very revolutionary reply.. at least to me and my class mates who were sinking in the monotony! He received good applause and there I was waiting for my chance…. And my mind busy thinking of an answer that would be appreciated by my teacher! Then on police also became part of the regular answers! And hurray my chance came at last… the teacher asked me the same question and I had an answer… a very novel answer… I want to become a journalist... and the class applauded my answer too!! :D but my teacher had something else in store.. she asked me how are you going to become a journalist? And to be very frank…I didn’t know there exists a special course for journalism… I had no clue how people became journalists... and wat was the job of a journalist was another question mark! Why on earth did I choose to give out this answer.. I could’ve followed suit… answered police and coolly forgotten it immediately! But I just gave a very stoooopid answer.. I said I’d go to college and study B.Sc.Journalist…. lol!! The last thing I expect anybody to say today! It didn’t stop there… the teacher asked us to write five steps we would take to achieve our ambition… and that was when I knew what journalism meant as a career…

It was all over long long back! But today again when I’m left with no internship and I sit back and think as to what I’m going to take up as a long-lasting career… journalism still shines before me as a very promising option!! After the video magazine, my interest towards television news has grown so much… I really wish I find a television internship soon!! The real thought of getting a job and working everyday… meeting them everyday… doesn’t enthuse me all that much! I rather prefer a very friendly work environment… where even if I’m not allowed to do what I really like... I can at least express my thoughts! May be I’m irresponsible... and this is why the mere thought of work... job irks me so much!
