Who is Soumyadipta?

I am an educator who loves writing.

I teach journalism to post-graduate students.

In my journalism career, I have worked with leading media houses such as The Times of IndiaWeb18 (CNN-IBN group)DNAand The Telegraph for the past 18 years.

Some of the topics I like writing on includes the politics of terrorism, the Pakistani Deep State and the political upheavals in Bengal. You will find some of my popular articles on India Today Group’s DailyO.

Here is the repository of my blogs on DailyO.

I was the official film critic when I was working with DNA and later at Web18 (Network 18CNN-IBN group).

I am also an expert in launching media start-ups. I played a pivotal role in launching the regional newspaper for The Times Of India called Ei Samay, a part of the Samay series of newspapers. Previously at Web18 (CNN-IBN group), I played a prominent role in re-designing and re-launching the portal in.com.

Over the years, I have launched several successful media ventures for my employers.

I started my journalism career with The Telegraph, as a crime reporter.

My journey as a blogger:

I started a blog on Bollywood during May, 2013.

My blogs were based on my professional experiences as a journalist while at DNA.

I often shared investigative insights about the Indian Film Industry in Mumbai. Some of the most recognised names in Indian cinema blogged with me.

Subsequently, I was recognised as one of the most popular bloggers in India in 2015.

In 2015, the blog made way for the popular website bollywoodjournalist.com.

During the same time, I started teaching journalism to students which I continue to this day. In fact, teaching has become my day job now.
