Sangeetha Nair


The writer is a graduate from the Asian College of Journalism and started her career with the editorial desk at The Statesman Kolkata in 2004 before moving to Kerala as the newspaper’s youngest Principal Correspondent. She was part of the launch team of the DNA newspaper in Bengaluru as its Assistant Editor (Edit Page) and subsequently took charge of TV Today Network’s (Aaj Tak/Headlines Today) Kerala Bureau during the 2009 election year. Investigative articles penned by the author during her three-year stint with the Times of India’s Thiruvananthapuram Bureau on tourism, IT and aviation, exposing corruption at all levels of government are commended with the Central Bureau of Investigation submitting a “Source Information Report” based on her articles against Air India on misappropriation of ground handling charges to the tune of Rs 14 crore. Her hard-hitting investigative reports on the viability and environmental clearance granted by the MoEF for the Rs 14,200 crore Vizhinjam Port without considering its due impact on Kerala’s tourism and the fishing community led stakeholders to take the matter to Court where the project is pending final adjudication before the National Green Tribunal. In January 2015, she put her journalism career in abeyance to participate in a nation building exercise, Walk of Hope 2015-16, a journey by foot from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, where she interacted with people from various educational, religious and government establishments to understand the heart of India.
