Political Satirist & Social Media Entrepreneur
"Akash Banerjee is a Political Satirist and a Social Media Entrepreneur. He's the founder and host of #TheDeshbhakt - India's premier political satire platform - that uses sarcasm and facts to showcase issues plaguing contemporary India. Before he embarked on his digital journey in 2018, Akash spent a decade and a half in the world of traditional media, as a reporter, anchor, author, and most recently as Vice President at Radio Mirchi. With his schooling from La Martiniere College (Lucknow), Akash completed his Master's from St. Stephens College (Delhi). Akash has spent the last two years trying to establish his youtube satire channel called TheDeshBhakt - only to find that his alter ego - Bhakt Banerjee has far more credibility and popularity. He hopes that in the end - the good guy will win and be allowed to question and mock those in power."
