Born in the year 1971, the controversial Journalist gained popularity in particular section of India. It was due to her association with NDTV India for a longer time of around 21 years.

She was even requested by the then CM of the state Narendra Modi to stop exposing weak spots till the armed forces cover those areas, but she refused to do so.
She didn’t hesitate in marrying kashmiri Muslim youth who too had a particular image in Indian society. It was now a compromise between professional life of a journalist and materialism.
Her first marraige lasted for six months only.
It was confusing story when she married second time. It was neither a love game nor a lust but everything in a compromising situation.
Her second husband Mr. Drabu husband was economist and chairman of Jammu and kashmir bank. If journalism means a particular ideology then it is the worst thing in the world.
She was less bothered to the torture done to the kashmiri pandits in valley or anti indian activites in kashmir or all over India.
