Learn more about me
A media educator who is a student of developments in the world of transnational television and its impact on the audience, I am intrigued by digitalization and love following the emerging world of new media. Drawn to journalism education by a strong urge to write and express ideas about happenings in the society, a writer is lurking somewhere within me. I have a blog of my own. Please visit the blog and engage in a conversation with me. I promise I will respond to all your comments. I love constructive criticism of my ideas. Yes, I appear on a news channel also at times to discuss journalism and social issues and contribute articles to news portals. I am a learner trying to impact lives through my learning. Let us communicate to change !
I am presently working as Assistant Professor and In-Charge, Department of Journalism & Mass Communication, Loreto College, Kolkata. I am also one of the Placement Officers of the College. My journey with media teaching started with Khudiram Bose Central College, Kolkata and Muralidhar Girls College, Kolkata. After a brief stint in these two places, I joined the Ph.D. programme at the Department of Mass Communication, The University of Burdwan as a UGC NET Junior Research Fellow. I was pursuing my Senior Research Fellowship when I got an opportunity to join as Assistant Professor (Guest Faculty) at the Department of Mass Communication, Central University of Jharkhand. After spending a year of memorable teaching experience among some eager knowledge seekers in the picturesque campus at Brambe, a 25 km drive from the Ranchi city, I returned to Kolkata to join as Assistant Professor and In-Charge, Department of Journalism & Mass Communication at Loreto College, Kolkata. The first male faculty in a substantive government post in a women’s college was another experience! Working amidst helpful colleagues it has been a worthwhile journey. Apart from my academic assignments in the college I have been engaged in some administrative roles. I took up the responsibility of the Placement Officer from 2015 and have been trying to facilitate the placement of the students of the college.
