Avalok Langer is a conflict journalist, which means he consciously deep dives into the belly of the beast – be it war zones, riots or areas wracked by kidnapping and extortion.
Avalok Langer studied Political Science at the University of Delhi. He worked for two and half years at NDTV, mostly on shows pertaining to youth affairs. Avalok then spent a year on a fact- finding mission across India’s conflict zones and border areas to get a deeper understanding of ground realities. For Tehelka, he reports largely on conflict, social and political issues, the Northeast and is branching out into East Asia. However his core area of focus has been the Northeast.
