The trio travelled traverse terrains to capture the agonizing tragedy of the victims of the flood. Simultaneously, in keeping with the mission of the channel to bring relief to the victims, they distributed food, water and clothes to the devastated people. They waded through neck deep waters, tiptoeing many a times to keep their heads above drowning waters. But they stood firm enough to hold their cameras and seize the disaster for the rest of the countrymen to witness. The pictures they shot of the devastating deluge impacted News 24’s audience deeply. Relief poured into News 24’s head office at Noida, Uttar Pradesh, all of which were transported to the victims subsequently. At the risk of their well- being and health, the trio worked to tell a story. An effort that has been lauded and appreciated at the glittering event of India News Broadcaster Awards over the weekend.
“I’d like to thank News 24, Managing Editor Ajit Anjum and all my colleagues who supported me to do such a challenging job. I have no words to express my feelings. Thanks to all,” Shivi told Greater Voice.
Anjum said: “We are all proud of the feat of our videographers. It was a tough moment for all of us as an entire team was stationed at the flood stricken area for a month. We provided relief and aid to the victims and the entire experience stands as an unforgettable time in our careers and lives. We hope to continue to provide our viewers authentic news that matters like we have in the past.”
Hailing from Muzaffarpur in Bihar, Shivi lives in Delhi and works for News 24. He’s earlier worked for Sahara Samay and ETv among others. He can be reached on 09873022407.
