This section has video links to the stories I did for CNN-IBN , covering all aspects of
environment journalism from undercover investigations , special reports to indepth
documentaries and interviews. It also includes stories and documentaries that won
national and international awards

We covered a range of news stories from tracking the Ministry’s policies to reporting on climate change or illegal mining

These were environment investigations that exposed for instance a forest officer who was diverting forests for illegal mining, another story that highlighted poaching of endangered birds and another that showcased how a corporate was breaking environment laws.

At Melting Point

This half hour documentary was shot in 2009 when I trekked upto the Gangotri Glacier at Gaumukhfor 21 kms to find out how climate change will impact the glacier. Accompanied by a team of scientists and a glaciologist, the documentary has stunning visuals of the landscape and mountain ecology and looks at issues related to climate change and the state of the Himalayan glaciers

A five part series that follows the river Ganga from its source Gaumukh in the Himalayas to the plains, right down to the sea over a 2400 km long journey. The documentary shot on high definition ran on History Tv18 and was translated into six regional languages. It also became a trendsetter in the media as it highlighted the plight of the Ganga due to hydropower projects.
