The Day When Team JWB Was Invited By Dainik Bhaskar

Interacting with people from the similar stream of career is always enriching. Today, we want to recall the day when Team JWB got invited by one of the leading newspapers in Jaipur – Dainik Bhaskar.
We, along with few more guests from varied fields, were taken on a little tour inside the Dainik Bhaskar office in order to make us familiar with their work culture. Meeting the treasured journalists and reporters, and learning the way they process worldwide news every single day was elevating.
It was Prerna Sahani, the News Editor of City Bhaskar, who was leading our anxious troop. With eyes wide open and alert ears, we followed her footsteps inside the giant office which is divided into many sections dedicated to different newspaper segments.
“We should be quite, and keep our excitement to us”, we reminded ourselves.
First, we’re taken to this ‘Secret-room’ where the ‘Secret-journalists’ sit who are responsible for the most undercover stories and statements that publish on the front page. We were told a story about their dedication towards work, mentioning one famous incident when the court was to give its judgment on terrorist Yakub Menon. The dedicated staff worked from 11 am making it till next morning so that they could deliver the latest update in the case.
And this is how, dear world, we get to read sensational stories every morning.
But all’s not serious in the headquarters of Dainik Bhaskar! When we met the youthful team of ‘City Bhaskar’, we felt this vibrant energy hitting us. We’ve always loved reading the supplementary, haven’t you?
However, what truly inspired us the most about this trip was Dainik Bhaskar’s women’s team. These power-puff girls handle everything from politics, real estate, stocks, education terrorism, lifestyle, fashion, food, travel and even a section called ‘Women’s Club’.
Being a women’s blog, we couldn’t help but collect their phone numbers so that we could bring their inspiring stories to you in near future!
We appreciate the warmth with which Dainik Bhaskar’s team welcomed us. Their sincere ritual of welcoming people from outside their office and getting them acquainted with their working style is innovative and effective in certain ways. The exchange of knowledge and corporate tactics that take place during such activities is truly valuable.
Before we wrap up, we want to bring up (yet again) the question of why we see less number of women in journalism, especially at top-notch positions. Is it because journalism is full of the thrilling journeys women aren’t ‘supposed’ to walk?
With this unrelated emotional statement, we hope to see more women choosing journalism, especially in an emerging city like Jaipur.
