Srishti Jaswal is a 24-year-old journalist who is exploring the intrepid world of freelancing during one of the most interesting times in India dominated by a pandemic amid religious polarization.
As a reporter, she has closely seen the aftermath of religious persecution and have reported extensively on the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown in 2020. Working for Hindustan Times as a city reporter, she has written daily on education, social welfare and legal beats.
The highlights of her two-year career include a three-part series from Line of Actual Control (LOC) in Kashmir after Article 370 abrogation in 2019. As an education reporter, she also broke the story whereby CBSE had decided to remove critical chapters on Democracy from class 10 syllabus.
It was in class 9 that she decided to become a journalist. Every decision in her life after that has been in line with that goal. She has been educated at the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) in Delhi after pursuing the Bachelor of Arts from Panjab University in Chandigarh.
Apart from being a happy reporter, she is also a passionate painter. Going by the words of Vincent Van Gogh “Art is to console those who are broken by life,” she seeks refuge in literature and art whenever she has the luxury of investing time.
