Marie Colvin; The Stuff Gritty Journalists Are Made Of

By Leslie Tripathy

While the journalist fraternity mourns the inhuman killing of war journalist, Marie Colvin by the ruthless Syrian forces. Brutality in Syria has been met with outrage by the peaceniks.

As a concerned audience, we await the news of the latest updates on the war-affected zone. The brave escapades, the tragic civilian deaths, the brutality and ruthlessness of government forces and we have been witnesses to historic wars and conflicts through the live coverage of courageous journalists. And Mary Colvin is one such grand veteran testimony of unabashed selfless grit and determination ensuring the world never missed out on her eyewitnessed accounts which were broadcast on CNN or the BBC because though a staff reporter of more than 20 years’ standing for The Sunday Times, she was – as usual – the last journalist not to have fled.

But sadly the news from Homs, where brutality under a cruel dictatorship would not trickle down to us. We would not know how many people have been k…

Chennai campus life taught me to pursue excellence

Life in Chennai taught me to pursue excellence 
I’m still getting used to hostel life, which is a far-cry from my Mumbai life. My lifestyle here is undergoing a certain change. I don’t have my Madhu chachi to serve me herbal juice early in the morning. Nor do I have Susanna, my pilate instructor around to motivate me to workout regularly.
To study I have to forgo a lot of happiness. After all I cant have everything on a platter, can I? These days I’m getting fatter, as I am too lazy to workout. Guess after another 7 months, I shall be back to my healthy lifestyle.

That was me in July 2010, living in Asian college of Journalism Campus. 
But the beauty of the campus life was I became more hardworking , inched towards excellence . Some friends were rude ,few were friendly. But I metamorphosed into my beautiful magnanimous self. I work better under pressure . I had so much work everyday, I would work then get tired and would sleep early and wake up early. I led a disciplined life. I had …

Manjula an incredible story of Betrayal and survival

Manjula Das: An Incredible tale of Betrayal and Survival

Leslie Ann Tripathy

Its important for us to recognize our Heroes and She-roes.
                                                                                 -Maya Angelou

My Grandma always told me, life is always difficult for a girl, because in India, her

beauty is her gift as well as her curse. Thats the story of an incredible woman called

Manjula Das born at Pattamundai, in a village of Orissa in the year 1960.

Its so difficult on the part of a woman to survive in a world dominated by men. She has to

be a slave, she is treated as a commodity. She has to be subservient. The moment she

raises her voice, she is crushed, downgraded, defiled and crucified.

 That is her story, born in a village, where

she went to nearby college to do her B.A. She had to tolerate million comments about the

dresses she wore to college. Manjula said, Because of financial hardship, I could not do

my M.A, so I  accepted a job in school. I got…
