About

I’m Atikh Rashid, a journalist employed with The Indian Express. This is  my personal website. I’m presently stationed at Pune and cover a variety of beats for The Indian Express and indianexpress.com.

I come from Parbhani district in Marathwada region of Maharashtra. Most of my schooling took place back in Beed/Parbhani after which I moved to Pune for higher-education and finished an undergraduate degree in Agricultural Sciences from College of Agriculture, Pune.  While studying in Pune, I discovered my inclination towards journalism and, after finishing the undergrad course, I enrolled myself into a journalism programme in New Delhi.

I have been working for The Indian Express for over nine years now.

I have a morbid interest for covering electoral politics, rural issues, media functioning, role of religion in society, and poverty alleviation. I am a cinephile and often write about independent cinema, film history and film heritage conservation.

Here, I publish longer or slightly altered versions of some of the stories that are published in the newspaper or the website. You may also find a few opinion pieces, once in a while.

I also plan to make this blog a forum where people can find information about the change in journalism industry in India, with special focus on thes slow decline of newspapers and magazines.
