Capt Abhishek Chandra is a Licensed Commercial Pilot by profession. He loves to Fly Planes. At present he is a Trainee Asst. Pilot Instructor with a reputed and one of the oldest Flying Clubs of the country but he is equally passionate about journalism. From his school days he used to write on social and political issues in prominent Patna-based dailies. The Only thing he watches on television are News Channels. Journalists are, a sort of, a celebrity to him!
Why Abhishek thinks he should become Star Anchor:
I have reached here chasing my childhood dream of becoming a TV journalist. Journalism is my obsession. I am equally obsessed about media as I am for flying. I never ever liked the stereo-type 9 to 5 jobs. I find myself a Silent, Calm person with a matured face value. I Speak less. Given the degree of excitement and thrill Flying gives you, No Pilot on earth perhaps would want to be a TV anchor. But still I want to be an anchor. Add to this the fact that I have spent Several Lakhs on my Flying Training. I can well manage the multitasking jobs of an anchor and Commands given from PCR as I am used-to to all these things during Cockpit Resource Management. I have a keen interest in Political developments of the country. I feel that I understand the Basics of Journalism. I want our country to be a better place where the Common man should feel that he is the happiest man on the earth. I want that the hidden truth behind all important developments of the nation should be told to all countrymen.
I command a good Voice, diction and Voice Clarity. Born and Brought-up in a Hindi Belt State Capital is definitely an advantage for me. I find myself as good in English as I am in Hindi. And most Importantly, being a Pilot, I do not Panic in difficult situation. I analyze situation effectively and do not exaggerate anything. Because I believe in Calling a Spade a Spade. I believe in a 24*7 working environment. That is why I throw my firm stake of being a Star Anchor.
