Ashish Shukla


Ashish Shula has a kind of varied background in journalism like few have in India. From newspapers to magazines to websites to television channels, Ashish has done the whole gamut in his over three decades of career. He began with Pioneer newspaper in Lucknow, graduating to Times of India in the 90s and from then on, moving on to India’s top news agency, Press Trust of India, before easing up with a news portal and dabbling in as editor of a national magazine. His reporting assignments took him all over the world, many times over, before he caught the digital TV bug and became associated with a number of national television channels, including Channel 7 (today’s IBN7), Aajtak and India TV, and appearing as expert from Zee TV to NDTV to Star News to Headlines Today among others. His write-ups have appeared in Outlook magazine. He has also been associated with a number of international radio and television stations, including BBC and ABC.

Not that Ashish stayed put in any of these attractive hubs for long. The restless him has now turned into an author. After writing a biography on Sachin Tendulkar--“the Masterful,”--he now has undergone a complete metamorphosis and produced a scholarly work, “How United States Shot Humanity: Muslims Ruined; Europe Next.” It’s an ambitious work which became part of his every breath for two years and took him on several visits to the Balkans.

Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I will be frank. It's been Kindle for a few years now. I like the lightness of it; as well as the voracity for books which it feeds. It's like you are in a candy store. The low prices are a huge temptation. I would confess I have bought more than I have read on Kindle lately. Blame it on writing this tome "How United States Shot Humanity: Muslims Ruined; Europe Next
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I haven't begun marketing in earnest really. But the kind of work I do, through my books or my website:, I realize there would be few takers in mass media, ignorant and manipulated as it is. I would rather be an independent writer and thinker. Fortunately, internet has quite a few credible names in this field. I enjoy tremendously reading them.
