Success Story of Talented Alumnus of Chandigarh University

Career Story as generously shared by Ankit Bhat himself:

ChandigarhUniversity students have a history of achieving their dreams and soaring beyond boundaries and I am one of them. Nothing makes me more proud than being able to talk about my own success.”

Ankit Bhat, narrates further:

“My journey at CU was truly great. Being in CU, I feel like I have achieved a lot. I hail from Jammu and when I took admission in the diploma course in Chandigarh University it was the first time that I had moved out of my city. During my days in CU, the teachers were very supportive. Getting placement after diploma was like a cherry on the cake for me. Though, I wanted to study further so I decided to pursue Mass communication instead of a job.

On successful completion of the Mass Communication examination, I secured a job in TV100 channel in Uttrakhand. Due to my lustrous achievements in TV Channel, Dehradun I was awarded the Young Journalist Award, which was a big achievement for me. After that, I moved to New Delhi to work with JK 24 x7. In JK 24X7, I got a precious and very rare opportunity which a young journalist can ever dream of. This opportunity was to meet the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi. I covered crime stories and got the opportunity to cover Uttrakhand assembly elections and the J&K Assembly session.
I covered both these events very successfully. After this, I got a call from News 18 Network to work in Jammu and Kashmir. This was my life’s another greatest opportunity which my hard work offered to me. I joined in Jammu and at that time the International border was full of tension. At that time, I covered Pakistan shelling at the international border. I also survived the militant attack in Jhajjar Kotli (in Jammu region near Katra Vaishno Devi ji) where journalists got caught in the crossfire between terrorists and the security forces. At this juncture, I thought that this was my last day of life as the bullets passed above my head during cross-firing. At the age of 25, I got the opportunity to become the Youngest Bureau Head in J8K State. 

I think all these opportunities came my way because of Chandigarh University. I would like to thank the faculty and Management of the University because of whose support I was able to achieve such a glorious success. I was ushered with excellent academic and personal guidance from a very inspiring class of professors of CU who shaped my career and gave me the right direction. I feel highly honored to get such world-class education from my alma mater i.e. CU.”
