Regular workshops needed for journos

Participated in the DW Akademie workshop on environmental journalism


 This is my fifth year in Deccan Chronicle newspaper in Chennai. I argue with myself about the kind of stories I did earlier and what I am thinking now. I am happy because the paper gave me enough opportunity to travel to remote places and report stories which were unheard of. At the same time, I could get opportunities to attend workshops. The recent workshop I attended was organised by the DW Akademi in the month of June. The workshop was useful in terms of sharing and learning about environmental issues from journos from countries like Bangladesh and Nepal.
