Glamourising the grind - Kathmandu Post

One of the good things about being a journalist is that your character often makes it to the movies.

In Bollywood, being what it is, the focus is more on the singing, dancing and seduction skills of journalists. One must invest more time in chasing one’s love interest than in chasing stories. Reporting can wait, always. Sharukh Khan, an Air India Radio journalist,...
