Sheetal P. Singh is known for his adept understanding of socio-economic-political issues and social strife prevailing among the social structure of the country and has extensively reported on such issues. He threw himself into journalism without any formal training during in 1983 when he was offered a job to translate Chinese and other East Asian countries' literature for the magazine section of Amar Ujala, a renowned Hindi Daily from U.P. Later he was appointed as Sub-editor in the Bareilly edition of Amar Ujala and was subsequently transferred to the upcoming Meerut edition.
In 1986 he joined India’s first broadsheet national Hindi weekly Chauthi Duniya and later took over as its State Correspondent at Lucknow. This was a crucial political phase when V. P. Singh raised the flag of rebellion against the then PM Rajiv Gandhi and ultimately succeeded to dislodge him. The state of Uttar Pradesh was the main battleground of this hard-fought political war and since then Congress never able to recover the lost ground. Sheetal Singh minutely observed and covered these political events taking shape just before the 1989 Elections for India Today (Hindi Edition) and done several in-depth stories on how a new political future of the country is being written in the Hindi heartland.
Sheetal P. Singh also has a knack for investigative stories and one such major story of his had, unfortunately, created a tiff with his Editor. So he ventured to another renowned magazine The Frontline and they published this story, which became the story of the year in the election year. He had to leave India Today and then worked for many other publications including Dainik Jagran, Swatantra Bharat, Samay Sutradhar, etc.
In 2011-12 he took out a fortnightly news magazine SAMKAL in Hindi from Delhi for about two years. He currently anchors a popular show Sheetal ke Sawal on satyahindi.com that draws a huge audience.
