Typical Day at work

Early weekday, I start my day at 7 for my radio show Good Morning Delhi. In the 5 hours on the show I report on sport, business, current affairs, conduct quizzes, play music, chat with my listeners. Every day I interview one person, people who are industry leaders, writers, entertainers basically people from diverse backgrounds. I wrap up the show at noon after which an hour or two goes in preparing for next days show. I'm done on an average by 2 pm or longer if an editorial meeting demands my time. But the rest of the day is spent intermittently keeping myself in the loop on events in the city, country and the world at large.
