In this episode, I’m talking to the Shibani Gharat, who is the principal correspondent at CNBC Awaaz News Channel and also an ultra marathon runner. She has travelled to more than 32 countries. On her Instagram page, she shares her fit lifestyle with the audience and inspires thousands of people.
In this episode, we talk about her story. How she started off with journalism and how she worked her way towards CNBC Awaaz. She also shares insights which might be helpful for the aspiring journalists. Shibani is the first non-ladakhi woman to complete The KhardungLa challenge which claims to be one of the highest marathons in the world with an altitude of 11000 to 17000 feet above the sea level. She shares many stories from her life experiences. It was a delight to have this conversation with her.

Quotes from this episode –
- If something happens once, it’s fine, if it happens twice it’s still ok, but if it happens three times then it’s a trend. So you need to keep an eye for those trends.
— Shibani (On how beginner journalists should approach to find stories)
- “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
- I think the future of anything (in content creation) is engaging storytelling, it is the way in which you adapt yourself to give the best of the story that you have to tell around that subject.
- You should be able to tell a story like you heard it from your grandparents. With flow, with conviction, with anecdotes.
- At the end of the day, any form of media is about communication, if you are able to communicate well, then that’s your medium.
- The harder you get knocked down (by failure) the quicker you should get up.
- Moving forward as soon as you can after a failure is the way to go.
