James Smart narrates about one of the most embarrassing moment of your career as a journalist.
“I was working for NTV at the time and Smirti was my co-host and I had this bout of hiccups. I had done everything from drink water, holding my breath and all that to make them stop. I was meant to be anchoring that night and there was worry that I might not execute the task, but I assured my directors that I was fine. Just when I was about to introduce the news, the hiccups came back. Smriti could not keep it together, she was in stitches. We had to hold off the bulletin for a few minutes.”
