An independent journalist, Devika Sequeira took the audience on a nostalgic trip as she discussed how mobile and internet were not accessible when it came to being a journalist back in her days. She said: “I expect the young journalist to be truthful and bold and don’t fear asking questions to people in power; read good books as they will help you to write better.”
