Gutsy. Fiesty. Outspoken. Courageous. Brilliant. Barkha Dutt gave new meaning to the word journalist as she spent 120 days traveling across India to report on the coronavirus pandemic. She did this with a small crew, in a tiny car, where she sometimes slept and which doubled up as her studio! Barkha's stories of destitution and struggle made many Indians come forward to help fellow citizens.  She risked her own health in her pursuit of the story – hear how she re-discovered her roots as a reporter and why she feels journalism is a public service. Listen to her story on the Uncommon Women podcast with Gayatri Rangachari Shah on the Red FM India app.
