Biresh Banerjee

My favorite job ever was selling vegetables in a London shop. There, I really loved talking to customers. A bit like journalism – listening to people, their needs and serving them as best as one can.

Born in:
Punjab, India

Hindi, English, Bengali, some German

Degrees/Journalistic experience:
BA (Hons.) Journalism from Delhi University, MA Media Management from the University of Westminster. I’ve worked as a reporter in both print and TV media and as a TV Producer and Anchor.

With DW since:

Favorite quote:
“Sometimes you’ve just got to jump off that bridge and build your wings on the way down.”

My personal hero:
The Composer in the Composition room of The Pioneer in Delhi who lived in one of the worst places in the city, earned a pittance, but always came to work on time, smartly dressed and did his job well; without a whimper of complaint or loss of focus.

What do I strive to be as a journalist?
A conversationalist.
