Sharing his personal experiences as a journalist, Mr. Karma who did his
schoolings from TNA, gave some important tips to the budding journalists of Sikkim University on how to handle unpredictable situations in news anchoring that itself has undergone drastic transformation over the years.

guessing skills and stretched it for around five minutes.
