A regular news-breaker on matters of national security and military affairs, Negi considers the coverage of he Kedarnath tragedy of 2013 as the highest point of his career. During the grave disaster at Kedarnath in June 2013, Manjeet Negi was the first and only TV reporter who walked for 55 Kms on the hilly track to reach the Kedarnath shrine. Spending his first night in the complex amidst several hundred dead bodies around him, Negi says he saw Lord Kedar in his dream. After the Kedarnath disaster, the writer got another opportunity to cover another disaster in the Nepal earthquake in 2015 for the Aaj Tak channel. During the reporting of that disaster for about 10 days, the writer got an opportunity to witness and report the large scale relief and rescue operations undertaken by the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force.
Besides reporting, he is also a skilled mountaineer. With Nehru Institute of Mountaineering and Garhwal Regiment, he has undertaken mountaineering expedition to Satopanth via Gomukh. Accompanying the Mount Manaslu mountaineering expedition of a Garhwal Regiment unit, he also reported about the expedition. He has also scaled the Dronagiri mountain near Joshimath in Uttarakhand.

I have worked as a Copywriter and Creative Director for various ad agencies in Indore, Bhopal and Mumbai. In 2016 I started working as an independent writer, which I have been doing till date. So far, I have worked as a freelance writer for the Times of India, Indore/Bhopal/Pune, Free Press, Indore and a columnist for Central India’s first tabloid First Print and also a Hindi daily, Prajatantra. I have also freelanced for online media houses such as Your Story (Bangalore), Wittyfeed (Indore), Pepper Inc. (NCR) etc.
My writing journey boils down to being an independent writer as an author, journalist and columnist. I am also an Insta poet, I regularly write poetry and post it on social media, together with articles on social issues, current affairs, politics etc. on Facebook. But I wish to establish myself as a successful novelist and my third novel is an effort on that direction. Thank you.
