Mosiqi Acharya is a Journalist with over 13 years’ experience. She worked with India’s top national broadcasters CNN IBN and India Today, where she has extensively covered the rise of Narendra Modi from being the Chief Minister of Gujarat to the Prime Minister of India, reported on terror attacks in Mumbai and Ahmedabad, covered state and general elections and interviewed numerous politicians, personalities and newsmakers.
Mosiqi moved to Australia in 2014 and since then has written several Op-Eds on Indian politics and Adani industries for Australian publications. She has been a speaker at various forums where Indian politics, business and economy has been discussed. She now works with SBS Radio’s Hindi programme as a Digital Content Producer at their Melbourne office.
She is passionate about Australia-India relations and wrote a detailed White Paper on Australia-India Bilateral Trade Relations, commissioned by the Australia India Institute and Australia India Business Council.

When she is not reporting, Mosiqi likes to write, read, debate and contemplate. Australia-India relations excite and intrigue her and she continues to discover, report and work towards bringing both the countries closer.
