easy but 22-year-old Prachi Pandey is here — in a run-down three-storied grey building in Noida from where seven channels of the Sadhna Media Group are beamed to north India and from where its media school operates Tiny unassuming classrooms and a slim library is all of it but it is better than the institute in her hometown where mass communication diploma classes never took off Here for Rs 90000 for a one-year course she has learnt to write a script face as well as handle the camera and anchor a show A year into the course she has a job as an assistant producer at VIP News channel though she hopes to graduate to anchoring shows Trendy black glasses perch on her nose and with a warm smile she speaks about watching the news as a teenager and deciding that the “media” is what she wanted to be a part of “To be an anchor you don’t just need glamour but knowledge as well” she says Priyanka Dhingra is a “personality development” counsellor at the institute She was an anchor at the Rashtra Khabar channel till May this year She is immaculately turned out blonde streaks glow in her hair turquoise earrings set off the black kameez she is wearing In her classes she says she teaches her students poise: “If you are in a meeting you can’t gulp down water you should take small sips with elegance” What will it take Pandey to become an anchor I ask Her glasses have to go “And she would definitely need to lose weight” says Dhingra 23 who had to lose 10 kgs for her job which involved reading news bulletins and hosting astrology shows “Viewers change channels in minutes You need a beautiful anchor to hold their attention” she says Of the hundreds of young people who flock to the media schools tucked away in the warrens of Noida’s Film City the majority wants to be the anchor — the face of primetime the furious defender of the nation’s right to know To them Dhingra’s rulebook perhaps does not seem out of place being a part of the self-fashioning that every profession demands But what does it say about life on the other side about the newsrooms where young women come up against the shadows of sexism “There is constant pressure to look younger slimmer and prettier on women anchors A woman with dental braces may be asked to go off camera but a male with gutka-stained teeth is a non-issue” says Arfa Khanum who has been in the profession for 14 years working as an anchor for Sahara TV NDTV and now Rajya Sabha TV Whatever be the truth of her allegations when news of the attempted suicide by an India TV anchor broke in June it seemed to reflect the crushing pressure that is a part of television newsrooms Thirty-one-year-old anchor Tanu Sharma accused two of her seniors Anita Sharma Bisht and M Prasad of driving her to the edge From Chandausi in Sambhal Uttar Pradesh Sharma joined India TV in February this year after stints in Jain TV and Sahara Samay among other channels Bisht she says complimented her “on her assets” and asked her to “socialise with politicians” a demand she alleges had nothing to do with her job When she refused she says her harassment began: she was hauled up and yelled at for her appearance her attire and her work “I was told I wasn’t good or glamorous enough and that I did not have the tehzeeb for a big channel I spent money buying trousers I could not afford but Anita Sharma would reject all of them” she says India TV has rejected Sharma’s allegations and said that this was a case of a subordinate’s personal vendetta against a senior respected colleague It has slapped a case of defamation on Sharma and two websites who covered the case When we met her in a flat in Noida Sharma said “They picked on me because of my background I come from a small town” *** Sandeep Marwah sits in front of a painting of galloping horses in a room which is large and florid in its aesthetic He is the head of the Marwah Studios which also runs a media school for TV journalists besides a film school a fashion designing institute a management institute and a school of performing arts “This is the maternity hospital of all the news channels in Delhi” he thunders “NDTV Zee all started operations with our facilities” Media students can expect to earn between Rs 15000 and Rs 20000 a month on their first job he says which is higher than the Rs 8000-Rs10000 a Sadhna Media student will bargain for When we ask him about women in the profession he interrupts us to say “It’s the law of nature of media that wherever there are women there is glamour Koi sharm nahi hai bolne mein In that she has an upper hand over boys even if she is less intelligent she will get a chance” he says But contrary to what Marwah would believe the nature of the beast that is television demands telegenic faces and presence not fair faces with straight hair and short black jackets yanked out of an assembly line Many channels promote a diversity of anchors and reporters while others play by stereotypes Varsha Singh a journalist with a Hindi news channel based in Delhi is from Lucknow with a decade-long career in news A few years ago the 31-year-old desk hand took an in-house test for anchoring and found herself hosting a news show But she was moved out of anchoring she says because the channel had problems with her dusky complexion “Nobody told me anything but you get to know from the way a channel works; when you find other reporters being denied a political beat because they are too dark you know why” she says In Hindi and regional channels Singh says appearance and glamour often become metrics to judge women anchors Agrees Renuka (name changed) a 31-year-journalist who moved from Hindi to English news TV “The most common perception is that women need to be dolled up The channel has very few expectations from them It’s not uncommon for a male colleague to say ‘Gajab lag rahi ho’ and expect you to feel flattered and not offended” *** 24×7 news became a phenomenon in India in the late 1990s and early 2000s and women journalists were a part of that moment setting the agenda and driving the change claiming a space in news organisations as equals Natasha Badhwar who was the first woman to be recruited as a cameraperson at NDTV in 1995 remembers it as an ideal media company for young women “There were absolutely no ‘safety’ nets we were thrown into the deep end we were travelling without male escorts covering everything from bomb blasts to plane crashes in the first week of work” she says Sonia Singh current editorial director of the channel and who joined it in 1992 says “In that sense we were luckier than print because we didn’t have a top-heavy male-dominated workplace where women then entered at a junior level” Five months into her job Badhwar found herself in Aurangabad with an abusive senior producer who was touching her inappropriately and using obscene language against her She called her boss in Delhi who asked her to abandon her assignment and fly back She filed a sexual harassment case and found “complete and total support” “The man apologised in writing but I refused to accept it and they respected that Eventually they asked him to leave There were colleagues who stopped talking women who wouldn’t work with me men who thought I was a man-hater But the organisation stood behind me” she says Nearly two decades later newsrooms have become more competitive and aggressive The second-on-second pressure to deliver on deadlines are more manic tempers easily lost and being yelled at a rite of passage “In such an environment if a woman or a man protests against bad behaviour you risk being called weak” says Prerna Subramanian (name changed) 30 a former anchor and producer In enshrining toughness or bullying as a survival strategy the workplace — always male-dominated — can become a space for the alpha male on the romp When Sarika Verma (name changed) moved from NDTV to Times Now in 2008 she found that “the biggest shift was in the way you were spoken to as a female employee” “ The boundaries of the personal and professional were transgressed repeatedly Anything could be used against you your marital status your personal life” she says In November 2012 the entertainment editor of TV Today had just resigned from her post and was serving her notice period when she had a meeting with the Delhi-based editorial head of the channel at her Mumbai office He began by telling her to “hire hot sexy anchors someone like you” “Then he asked me why I was leaving ‘I heard you are in a new relationship log keh rahe ke ***** ko naya ladka mil gaya hai Why are you in a long-distance relationship I am sure you have many boyfriends Tum jaisio ke toh har shahar mein ek hota hai Delhi mein ek Bombay mein ek Yeh kaun sa wala hai’” she says She recalls cutting the conversation short and how deeply offended she had been by the exchange She later filed a sexual harassment complaint with the editor-in-chief of the channel which she alleges was at first dismissed by the HR head who also threatened her with legal action The woman persisted and a sexual harassment committee was formed in June 2013 (Despite repeated mails the current head of HR TV Today refused to react to the allegations) The price for flagging improper behaviour is often exacting “I am not just a newsreader I can do reporting I am a sub-editor Yet after this no one wants to hire me” says S Akila a 28-year-old former anchor of Sun TV Chennai This is the sexual harassment case she filed in November against her seniors Vetrivendhan and V Raja the former chief editor Akila joined Sun TV in December 2011 and a few weeks later she alleges Vetrivendhan “started making advances When I refused to be friendly with him he put me on the 4 am shift for a month-and-a-half at a stretch V Raja who was the HOD unfortunately knew I was going through a rough patch in my personal life and they both tried to exploit my situation” In November 2012 in a conversation with Akila Raja allegedly complimented her on her looks and asked her what favours she could do if she was confirmed in her position In March 2013 Akila filed a complaint with the police In July this year a Chennai court filed a non-bailable warrant against Raja “I do not know if the bosses at Sun TV knew about the way girls were treated at the workplace or whether they allowed it to happen There was no one to be approached for filing an internal complaint In the media we talk about so many issues But no one wants to talk about how we treat women” That’s the conversation Daljit Ami the former editor-in-chief of a Chandigarh-based Punjabi channel beamed in the US and Canada wished to encourage when he set up a sexual harassment committee this year in response to a woman employee’s complaint about a senior who sent her suggestive messages and made explicit remarks in her presence He says the reaction to the move revealed a lot about the complete lack of understanding of a woman’s space in a masculine newsroom “Media institutions have not created an environment a mahaul where sexual harassment is acknowledged Mostly women speak up when they have been harassed a lot pushed to the limit Even when there is a complaint it is not treated with seriousness There is always a question about who instigated the woman to file a complaint There is not even the awareness that if you advise the complainant to settle things forget the incident that amounts to wrongful pressure” he says In Noida as Prachi Pandey readies for a shift struggling to stick to the diet that will bring her down from
