BARKHA DUTT – She is a stalwart of Indian television journalism, who chose the ‘Fourth Estate’ as her life’s calling. Armed with prestigious diplomas in journalism, she began her journey as a cub reporter at NDTV. However, her rapid progress and innate talent soon transformed her into a seasoned professional.

Her talk-chat show, ‘We, the People’, became a national favorite, winning her the ‘Best Talk-Show’ award at ‘The ITA Awards’ for an unprecedented five years in a row. Her coverage of the 2004 tsunami earned her the Padma Shri, a civilian honor bestowed by the Indian government headed by Manmohan Singh.

For 21 years, she was an integral part of NDTV, and even today, she remains a voice that commands attention. Arguably, she is the ‘Face’ of India’s media explosion, a symbol of journalistic excellence and integrity that continues to inspire generations of journalists.
