  • Shishir Prasad

    Editor, ET Prime

    In my past stints at Forbes India, the Economic Times, Business Standard and Businessworld, I have written on technology, finance, management, and strategy. My colleague Pravin Palande and I won the Inaugural IE Business School Award for economic journalism. I have also spent time outside of journalism, most recently at TCS. Each of those assignments has given me a better understanding of how companies take business decisions and a deeper understanding of the business of technology. When not writing on a deadline I love to sit down with a good book; Catch 22 and The Man Without Qualities are two all-time favourites of mine. Indian classical music gets my number, and to make sure I don’t get worse for the wear there is nothing better than a good game of squash.

  • Aesha Datta

    Assistant Editor - Environment, ET Prime

    Standing at 5-foot-and-a-wee-bit, I tend to look at the world from a different angle, literally and metaphorically. At ET Prime, my work is to write on environment and climate change in a way that conveys the urgency around these subjects, without alarmism or agendas. Having traveled to the remotest corners of India and interacted with communities truly affected by climate change, I am excited about the power of journalism in creating change on the ground. Before ET Prime, I covered environment and health, among other subjects, at the Hindu Business Line. My ultimate dream is to become an ecologist.

  • Arti Singh

    Assistant Editor - Fintech, ET Prime

    I am a born-again business journalist. After 10 years in the profession, I took up a corporate-communications job where I couldn’t survive two months. Help came in the form of a spot in ET Prime’s reporting team. Here, I chronicle the evolution of fintech, one of the buzziest sectors in India today. The rise of startups taking on financial leviathans, a large unserved market, and a government grappling with policies and regulations make for blockbuster stories, some of which I hope to tell. In my previous avatars, I have covered fintech at NewsCorp VCCircle and enterprise technology and startups at Firstpost. If you have a view on how the idea of money is changing, and changing us with it, I'd love to hear. Twitter: @artijourno | Email: arti.singh@timesinternet.in

  • Prashant Mukherjee

    Assistant Editor, ET Prime

    I've been in the profession for nearly 10 years. My first venture in the energy sector was covering oil and gas for Bloomberg UTV. It was one of my favourite beats, and since I was the youngest of the lot among other journalists covering the beat, I had to work much harder to break stories. Being a television reporter, I was lucky to break stories on the Cairn-Vedanta deal, the court battle among the Ambani brothers for gas allocation, and the petrol-decontrol reforms, among others. After Bloomberg UTV, I worked with Financial Express covering energy, later heading the business bureau at The New Indian Express and The Statesman.

  • Rishi Joshi

    Senior Editor, TIL, ET Prime

    I’m an incorrigible news junkie, wolfing down everything from the gyrations of the sensex to what’s lighting up Bollywood.

After a whirlwind innings as a television news anchor, first with CNBC India and then Headlines Today (now India Today TV), I changed tracks to become a print journalist with Business Today. ET Prime has now opened a window to a brave new world -- digital. I’m a senior rewrite editor and working with a team that’s top-of-the-line. Sports on television helps me unwind.

    Coming from an Engineering background and having worked at TCS for nearly 3 years, I am often asked- why Journalism? I reply- why not? I prefer to be realistic and not overly optimistic. So try not to be surprised when you see me sneaking away from social gatherings that demand and embrace just flattery. Having said that, data is undoubtedly my close companion and a mind boggling therapist. Coupled with a hot cup of coffee, there is nothing more soothing to the soul than spotting slightly deviated data patterns that have an impacting story to tell, which in an otherwise standard world would be deemed 'normal'.

  • Tarun Shukla

    Editor - Aviation and Defence, ET Prime

    I have been chasing flying objects (among other things) for over a decade now, with work published in Mint, Hindustan Times, The Wall Street Journal, Ashgate Publishing, and The Pioneer. A series exposing India’s air safety gaps in 2010 scooped a Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA), Hong Kong, gold award for investigative reporting. The warning of an imminent crash unfortunately came true three months after the series, with the decade's worst air disaster in Mangalore that killed dozens. At ET Prime, I will be dissecting this space further with the aim to catch all the unusual flying activity that otherwise fails to make it to the public domain.
