Role of media in the society
Today television channels and newspapers are making fast money by cashing on the news in wrong sense and wrong way. In the race to become more popular and to make money they have broken all the limits media must follow while serving to build a healthy and progressive society. They have no respect for the sentiments and ethics of the people and land whom they serve to, with their immense power to influence the massses they just make judgment like a true dictator rather than a good advice of a true friend as they previously used to do. If it will be going in the future then we people have to think about the role of media in our life.

I am a 9 year old boy.I want to say that India is a democratic country. The media plays an important role in our life. It has the power to speak boldly against wrong politicians. The media gives voices to the poor people. When nobody listens to a man only the media raises his voice.

NEHA LAKRA

I am a 9 year old girl. I agree with this.

DEEPTI

In my opinion media plays a vital role in everyone's life. It solves their problems. It gives them choices as many new media and channels are coming up. Yes sometimes it sensationalizes the news items but again I feel that media is something that is must for today. It helps and provides vital information to the people.

MANISH MADHAV

Media is considered to be the 4th pillar of the society. The other three being legislative, executive and judiciary. It definitely plays an important role in the welfare of the society.

TEJINDER PAL SINGH

can you send me the role of media in making of legislation. It is very urgent.

ASH

I agree

MPHO SEERANE

The media plays a very important role as a source of information,education and entertainment.It accommodates the world in to a single village which is saturated of media-information.

ABHILASHA

Media plays an important role. Its a mirror of the society. It's duty is to inform, educate and entertain the people but nowadays we see that media is not doing its duty honestly. Instead of giving important information and educative programme it is giving emphasis to sensationalize the public. They are only trying to attract people to increase their TRP rating. They raise the matter for 2 or 3 days then they forget that and never try to get the feedback of the cases.

PEEYUSH MALHOTRA

Media has a constructive role to play for the society. Today News Channels and even some Newspapers are mouthpiece of some political parties. Their work then limits only to spread the ideology of the party rather than giving the correct news. People have to judge on their own by looking different channels for the same news and then form a conclusion. Anyways, Media Ji tusi great ho!

CHHAVI

I seriously think that media is an integral part of our society but that's also a fact that it's too much intervention in everything is a matter of concern. sometimes, just for making money an insignificant news is given so much priority that the real news is not even brought into the notice Yes, it does also entertain but again its a debatable issue because by 'entertainment' we mean healthy entertainment and not that non sense tv serials.. So at last like science it is a tool which we have to use by our judgement to provide maximum satisfaction side by side without harming ourselves. Thank you.

TANVI

In my view, media is the watch dog of the political democracy. If it plays its role honestly it will be a greatforce in building the nation but now a days due to great commercialisation it is not performing its role properly which is not healthy for society.

SHAFIQ HAHSMI

It's duty is to inform, educate and entertain the people but nowadays we see that media is not doing its duty honestly. Instead of giving important information and educative programme it is giving emphasis to sensationalize the public.

SHONISANI LEMONYUCJES

The media are so much part of us that to recognize their impact, we must step back and consciously think about how they shape our lives and what they are saying. The media affects people perspective not only through television, but also through radio and newspaper. In this way, even many messages with which we cannot agree, inevitably coming to us from a diverse constellation of media, will not hurt us. They can even be turned to our benefit by whetting our understanding and articulation of what we believe.The media plays on peoples fears.

DEEPTI EVANI

Media plays an important role in the society. They help us to know current affairs on the spot. They put their lives in danger during a terrorist attack or a natural disaster, just to inform us about it. It is partly because of them that there is awareness spreading in the society. This is how, many countries are able to contribute to the affected areas. Who are the people who tell us about corruption? Who are the people who tell us about the crimes? It is the media who tells us. It is the media who shape our lives. Without media our lives are incomplete. In conclusion I would like to say that the media plays a very important role in our lives and in the society.

MALLIKA BERA

Media is really an important object in the society nowadays. Without the media, it would have never been possible for us to become so much advanced. Though sometimes it becomes too intrusive, but still I think it plays a very important role in our society. It helps us to know about how the poor people are being exploited by the richer ones, how the students are being abused by the teachers, how the brutal fathers are killing their own baby in its mother's womb as it is a girl. Had the media been not there we would have never been able to know a bit about all these.

SALWA MOIDEEN

I feel very thankful dimdima for providing me with valuable information. It was really useful and improved my knowledge in this topic. I expect more from you. It will be more helpful for me if you provide me some information on "BEHIND THE SUCCESS OF EVERY MAN IS A WOMAN - WITH SOME RECENT AND PAST EXAMPLES OF GREAT PERSONALITIES." Do mail it to my ID.

MPHOZER SEERANE

I totaly believe that the media plays a very important role in the society. The main important functions of the media are entertaining, educating and informing the society. For the society to cope in this technologically dependent era, they need to be media saturated.

ACHINT GUPTA

I think media plays an important role in our lives. It gives us all the news from every part of the country. It also sometimes entertains the people, educates too. I think everybody should log on this website and gain knowledge.

M. AHMED

I think media plays a vital role in our life because if somebody is living in a small town, media is the only tool which provides latest information about the whole world. May be the sources are different, person, TV, radio, Internet.

PREETIKA

I think "MEDIA" is playing crucial role in educating ,entertaining & also for providing us with informations & news. Your life without "MEDIA" is like a lamp without oil. So you must widen your scenario about the importance of "MEDIA" .I think , if our country is making progress it's only because of so called "MEDIA".

SULOCHANA SHARMA KV MANDI

Media is an important part of our life. It gives us all latest and fresh news to understand in many ways. It prevents curruption. With the help of media we know every news and other things. WELL DONE MEDIA KEEP IT UP!

NISCHAL

I liked the essay. But it's like telling one's own experience.

MAHTAB ALAM

Yes it is very nice and important work. Thanks.

MD MAHTAB ALAM

Today, media is considered the fourth pillar of the state all over the world, first and foremost British Member of Parliament Lord Macaulay had given this status to the media, in any country, the governing body has a significant position, then religious leaders have second position, after that general public has third position and media have fourth position. In any republican government system, there must be three administrative bodies, 1- Parliament, 2- Administrative department, 3- Judiciary body. In the absence of any of these three bodies, the government can not run systematically, but now it is felt that one body more is necessary to be with them, that is media, this body is considered more important these days, it plays an important role as an informative bridge between governing bodies and general public, in absence of media general public cannot know about what kind of bills and acts are passed in the parliament, and what are their positive and negative effects in the society, if media person close their eyes the government officials will do what they want, so media plays a very important and impartial role between government activities and general public, so much so that it is said that the freedom of media is the guarantee of success of republic government.

P.PRATYUSH

The Mass Media is an unique feature of modern society. It's development has accompanied an increase in the magnitude and complexity of societal actions and engagements, rapid social change, technological innovation, rising personal income and standard of life and the decline of some traditional forms of control and authority. There is an association between the development of mass media and social change, although the degree and direction of this association is still debated upon even after years of study into media influence. Many of the consequences, either detrimental or beneficial, which have been attributed to the mass media, are almost undoubtedly due to other tendencies within society. Few sociologists would refuse the importance of the mass media, and mass communications as a whole, as being a major factor in the construction and circulation of social understanding and social imagery in modern societies. Therefore it is argued that the mass media is used as “an instrument”, both more powerful and more flexible than anything in previous existence, for influencing people into certain modes of belief and understanding within society.

BIBHOO TRIPATHY

These articles are very useful.

DIVYA CHOUKESY

Really good essays by people. Well done

RELAN NEHA

I agree

SHASHI

Media playa a vital role in our life. But sometimes it also has bad effects because they interfere in somebody's personal life.

BAVARIYA DHARA.A.

Media plays an important role in today's world. Through media we can get information in few minutes. But we should not see just one side of the coin as there are many good and bad things considering both the sides of the same coins. There are even many small children who get influenced by media and some things shown are bad for them. So media has good side as well as bad side none of the sides can be ignored.

TEJASWI

I agree with shashi.

SANJAY NULI

I do agree with most of the messages above, the role that has been played by the media in the preset political system is immense. And it has rightly earned its position as the fourth pillar in any democracy of the world, more so in a country like India. But it has been my personal belief, that with the no. of channels that are coming up, and each one seems to be more interested in the TRP rating and their commercial gains, rather then playing the role for what it is meant for. Now the media seems to be more interested in who is getting married where, what is getting cooked there. Somebody is cheating on the other, etc. My question is, are these matters of national interest? The media needs to get above these petty things of creating national issues of matters that shoud not be give so much importance.

YASWANTH

This is a good message to all the citizens and also to develop.

GAGANDEEP SINGH

Today, Media is playing a very important role in society. Its importance raises in devolping country like India. In our country media needs to play a constructive role. Specially print & electronic media should realise their responsibility and they should work in making the society and nation.

JANAK KUMAR PARMAR

I agree.

AMIT KUMAR SANDIL

Hi guys, nowadays media plays an important role in our life. It brings news $ many other things. But some times media doesn't respond in +ve way. It highlights some small thing in a huge way for its own profit i.e to rise it's own TRP. But media plays a vital role in our life. I like journalism.

DEEPI

According to me, media plays a very important role in our life. Firstly media gives us a lot of information of what is happening around us. Media motivates us to purchase branded things like with trademarks, patents, What is the sensex - today, etc. A lot of sources of media like CNBC TV18, AAJ TAK, NDTV, STAR NEWS, CNBC AWAAZ. etc. it gives all information of the words. So media is the biggest source to know about the world.

MUKESH

I agree with this that media is playing a very vital role in our life. Nowadays our progress more depends on our recent information about everything. But on media some questions arise that - how much freedom should be given to media.

SHVETA GUPTA

According to me, MEDIA in true sense acts as a connectivity bridge between people worldwide. It makes us aware about what all is happening in this world. It is only due to media which we are able to be safe from being involved in various dangerous activities.

UTKARSH

In my opinion, media is a very important aspect in a society where there's democracy. The common people have the right to know the working of government. People should be aware of the happenings around them. I guess a country where people don't know the happenings around them & the working of governance, that country cannot progress. In last 20 years India has progressed so much only because of media. The British were able to win over us because at that time the common person didn't know about the changes in their society thus Indians failed to unite amongst themselves to protest against the British.

DEEPAK TIWARI LNMIIT

Media acts as a kind of liaison between the government and the people.

SANTOSH

I feel very nice after the reading this matter.

RAVI KANT

Browsing through above message Media does have a postive and a negative side. In current epoch there are many irrelevant things which should not be shown. I think media should understand that news channels are seen by small children to old-aged people. Hence they should understand what should be shown and what should not be shown. Whatever they do it should be under limit.

HARSHIT

Media is a silent insect which damages society slowly.

SHIVAM KESHRI

The role of Media can never be neglected in the society. It refers to the section of mass communication that focuses on presenting current news to the public. There is also some disadvantage concerning to electronic media, I think sometimes some channel also broadcast and publish the messages in such situation that the real messages are left beyond our hands. The other disadvantage is that some times they also publish or broadcast some vulgar news,and sometimes un-essential activities are served as very important news and broadcasted again and again. This does not broaden the reach of media.

AVINASH KAUR MATHARU

As a media student, I have constantly realized that indeed media is a very powerful weapon that is used to target not few but large masses. It is very essential for media to promote itself and others in a right manner because we must use media as an entertaining as well as an informative platform to make ourselves aware of things happening around us. And it is true that many times media gives undue coverage to issues which are really not important to a common man and neglects other important matters. It would be so good if media is used as a platform by the people and for the people to make our world a beautiful place by providing the important information and right kind of entertainment.

SHADMA

Undoubtedly media plays a vital role in a society but isnt that a big question today whether its playing a constructive role or not?? When we talk about media first thing that clicks to our mind is audio visual media because it is accessible as well as easily interpreted by everyone including illiterate people. Nowadays Indian media is only concerned with its TRP's and gaining more popularity than competitor channels. In recent times there have been some astonishing cases after which I really felt that media should be ashamed of itself. Whatever it may be Indian media is not at all responsible towards the people to whom it is serving what do you people think about it???

MAQSOOD BALOCH

NO ONE CAN DENY THE IMPORTANCE OF MEDIA IN CURERNT WORLD. IF TODAY WE ARE CALLING THE WORLD A GLOBAL VILAGE THAT IS JUST BECAUSE OF MEDIA. AS FAR AS THE SIDE EFECTS ARE CONCEREND IT DEPENDS ON SOME ONE'S OWN POINT OF VIEW WHETHER HE USES IT IN A GOOD WAY OR IN A BAD WAY.

TAFARA

The media is the primary medium for the dissemination of information. It can be viewed as a forum that provides a voice to the voiceless.The media sadly in most LDCs is not being exploited and utilized to it maximun capacity. There is need for full and greater press freedom.

ABHINAV FZR

Acc. to my point of view, media has some positive as well as negative points. Sometimes it does not care about humanity.

RABAAB

I agree with all this but I have an assignment that media is playing a havoc to young minds. And I have to speak against the motion give me points. My id is evilbabe840@hotmail.com.

SUNAYANA

Media plays a very important role in our lives, it is because of media that we are all aware of what is happening around us. Not only does it bridges the gap between the government and the the general public but it also provides us with the information about what is happening in the other parts of the world, the new technologies that is being developed, about inventions, disasters and almost everything. It is because of media that any kind of information is just one click away. When we talk about media, we are not talking about the electronic media only, it includes newspapers, magazines, radio, internet etc. Though it is true that electronic media is more prevalent and it has greater impact on the masses, but the role of other media cannot be neglected. There are some news channels and papers that give more coverage to unnecessary news to boost their trp but these channels contitutes only a part of a much larger body of MEDIA. There are people who take keen interest in watching these sensationalised news. so in my opinion, it depends on the masses itself, of what kind of news they are seeking. In short there is something for everyone.

Media ofcourse plays a very important role in our life, but what I believe is they are much into business of popularity now days. The news they show, more than 60% does not make any sense, and another thing which I noticed is, go through various new channels and you will find different statements in different news channels, so you never know what's right and what's wrong. I believe role of media is to convey correct message rather than to work for popularity.

SIDDHARTH UNAGAR

MEDIA IS LOOSING ITS ORIGINAL TRACK & FORGETING ITS REAL RESPONSIBILITY. TODAY IT HAS BEEN DRAMATIC & LOST ITS RELIABILITY. IT MUST BE BANNED FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

NAVJOT

It's true that media is considered the fourth pillar of the state and media is indeed doing a lot of good to society. But as they say, every character has grey shades, same is true with media also. On one hand media is educating people, on the other hand media has adopted a self imposed right of intruding into the privacy of people, be it commomn man or celebrities.

It is bringing sensing power in human beings to think what is going on in his surroundins and to think the responsibility as a dutiful citizen of country to bring all society people together ,and to get ride of the evils from our hearts. Media is one type of medicine for suffering and ailing people from injustice. Thanks for opportunity.

We live in an era today in which both journalists and the public in the United States are struggling to reach a consensus on what constitutes good journalism. It's no longer enough for journalists themselves to think they are doing a good job. For journalism to continue to receive constitutional protection and continue to attract readers and viewers. Readers and viewers have to agree that journalism plays an essential role in our democratic society. I agree media performs a good job.

The media in India enjoys complete freedom and is vibrant, media misuse is there because they try to look which our Society cant accept.

MANEET KUMAR

Media has indeed played a great role in shaping our society....it has influenced ideologies, brought realities to peoples faces be it in terms of corruption, terrorism, nationalism etc. But with the growing competitiveness amongst sections of the media itself it has led to the manipulations of real informations by the media itself so as to gain advantages over their competitors. The face of media has certainly changed in modern times.

GAURAV RANE

Media is eye of India.

PANKAJ KUMAR

It plays more important role in Indian Society.

AVIRAL SHARAMA

Yes its true that media plays important role in society.

APALA ROY

The role of media in the present society is indeed unavoidable. Its role of educating,informing people about the happenings in and around the world is of great significance. People need to stay updated and media is the source that helps in this updating. The role of media is so important that it is considered as the fourth wall of democracy. But one also needs to remember that since it has such a great role to play in the progress of a country it has to be very careful in the execution of its role. The need is of a impartial,true media.

ARVIND M K SINGH

The debate on media is in fact a debate of changing world. Media is just a reflection and manifestations of the social realities. Hence to blame media for all the "hypes", "Sensetionalization", "Sting operations"and "Blackkmailing" etc is not right. The reporters, journalists, producer, editors and other associates of the media are part and parcel of the society which is going through rampant commercialisation. All the sections of the society including media has been influenced by the philosophy of "Survival of Fittest" theory where TRP is the major yardstick.

MOHAN KHANNA

SAI RAGHU NADH

According to me media really plays an important role in our society. But if it plays its role honestly it will be a greatforce in building the nation but now a days due to great commercialisation it is not performing its role properly which is not healthy for society.

SEETHA RAMI REDDY

The media plays an important role in an Indian society. But some times media misuses its power.

RIAZ AHMED

Hello! I agree that media plays a very important role in our society but it has also some negative role.

SUPRIYA

Well its true that media in todays time plays a very imp role. It provides a good platform for people to voice their opinion. Today panel discussions are hosted by media where proficient people discuss major issues that have curbed the development of our country and provides their valueable views. But media certain times give unnecessary imp to those issues that really do not require much discusssion. Thus in a market driven journalism, I expect media to play its role effectively and efficiently.

PRIYANKA PANDEY

Media is of a great help to our Indian society. Its role does not stands for judgement, its major role is to give us information about the situations for which we eagerly wait starring news channels n then blame them for their coverage. It has to be one's own decision to judge the situation whether right or wrong. If media would be responsible for telecasting unwanted information on air, then my dear friends let us get back to the time when news used to be hardly a matter of an hour or two in a day. We are supposed to be thankful to our mass media for bringing 24 hrs news at the time of attacks on our country. Why is each and every citizen of India bound to news channels for their updates? That's because we trust them. Anyhow I would like give a standing ovation to media for their work. Hats off media. Keep it up.

DIPANJALI

Media is playing an important role in our lives. It has educated people about the current issues and has helped to shape public opinion. These days the media is wavering from its actual role and giving us biased information which makes it difficult for us to have a correct view of the actions of the government. The media is misusing its power and sensationalizing issues and as a citizen of this country I strongly feel that some action should be taken to provide a media with an unbiased stance as this will help in a strong and successful democracy.

ROSMY

Media plays a very powerful role in bringing awareness in the society. And it has increased a lot recently. The main reason is that common people rely on media to know all happenings. And the reach of media to common people has increased a lot nowadays. So the role of media is undismissable. Without media we are literally 'a frog in the well'. TV n print media help us in getting accustomed to the happenings around us - locally, nationally and internationally. For the tech-savvy generation, there's e-media too. During the outbreaks of avian flu and chikungunya, it is the media that made us aware of their symptoms, precautions and treatments. Media regularly gives us tips towards having a greener earth. When tsunami struck India, media made documentaries about it which inspired people to contribute to tsunami funds. Same is the case with the Gujarat quake that struck a few years earlier. The media footage turned many ordinary citizens into patriotic citizens by encouraging them to participate in the relief works. Doordarshan and many private organizations advertise several general awareness programmes (using power and water judiciously, join civil services, etc). As pointed out by previous posts, when sport/movie icons voice out their opinions on the same topics, their stand has more strength.

It is important for us to remember not just the pros and cons of media but also to be able to assure ourselves about the ways in which it impacts various shortcomings and crisis throughout the world over various issues across domains of life. Our question should be does it help, beyond just bringing things into our notice. As just getting to know is not enough! Does it makes a difference to vulnerabilities of life? It takes up a life span approach focussing a child, a girl, an elderly, an adult placed in various contexts and situations. Thus it provides us a situational analysis of people and places. We are exposed to the dim and the hard realities of life. It widens our lens to acknowledge a justice as well an injustice bridging the gap between people and policies and political processes. We should really be proud of its reach. But not to forget it is a two edged weapon!!

Media is the key of the society which opens the facts and reality of society

IMRAN HAIDER

I totally agree of the above discussion that media plays a vital role in society. According to me media makes the opinion of the society members about any event or issue. Media shows the direction of any thing that how to perceive the things.

Well in today's world everyone is running after money. So whats wrong if media is interested in making TRPs??? There are many news channels and it is the need of the hour. Why do we study the same book written by two author's? Just to know the topic by two different views!! If people say that media is just spreading sensational news, then why do you watch such news?

PRAKASH

Media shares current global financial crisis. Media should come up with the solution not just the problem.

DINEET

India is a democratic country. Every person has been given the right of speech.In our country, media is always looked up with a positive attitude. It does not imply that it has got the right to dampen the ethical values of our nation. Media plays a pivotol role in the progress of our country so it should learn to be within its limits. Pinpointing will not help,suggestions to the queries of the people should be put forward. EARNING LOADS OF MONEY SHOULD NOT BE THE ULTIMATE MOTIVE, LEARNING ETHICS SHOULD BE THE LAST GOAL.

HARINDER SINGH GILL

In my opinion media plays a vital role in the development of India. It is like a medium of communication between public and government. It provides us immortal knowledge. Apart from this I want to say that the status of media is declining day by day. But I would say that ,"Life without media would be like a ship without a Captain."

NIVIDA SHARMA

Well I thnk discussion about this topic always has lopsided views. I truly agree with all my friends who have given there views. But one thing I want to say that in above topics many of my friends are able to point out only one side of coin , I dont know how we can forgot this thing that we always have two sides of one coin. If we are able to mark some positive points then its our duty to be aware of negative points also. As a mass.comm student I truly from the hub of my heart respect media. Nodoubt ,now a days media has became a fourth pillar of Democracy but my friends we cant swallow these words as a panactia of media reputation. If we really think this then I think we are sculting out the real issue. With positive effects there are negatives also. Nodoubt we have positive points also but media system needs more radical approach.

SANKALP SHARMA

MEDIA PLAYS A PRECIOUS ROLE IN OUR LIFE BUT UPTO SOME EXTENT. NOWADAYS MEDIA IS INTERRUPTING IN OUR PERSONAL LIFE WHICH IS REALY UNTOLERABLE AND THEY USE OUR PERSONAL RELATIONS AS A MEDIUM TO INCREASE THEIR TRP'S. FINALY I WANT TO SAY THAT THE MISSUSE OF ANY POWER COULD RESULT IN MAINTAINING DISTANCE BETWEEN MEDIA AND COMMON PEOPLE.

RAJASI MAATHE

I AGREE WHOLE HEARTEDLY, THAT MEDIA PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN OUR LIFE, but now a days it has become the medium of earning profit no one is giving quality, day by day newspapers are increasing, tv channels are increasing, but what is the actual use of this? Media should understand it's actual responsibility towards society and accordingly it should behave,as early as possible.

RAJA

Media does play a big role in creating awareness regarding problems of National Importance with social background.

TIKESHWAR PATEL

GANESH KUMAR YADAV

In my view media plays a vital role in everyone's life. I think media is powerful tool of communications it helps in promoting right things in right time. media helps us to know current affairs on spot, it gives us all the news from every part of the country. it also sometimes entertains the people, educates too. I strongly believe devloping country like india should give much importance to media . I even feel we should never think one side I mean in postive way we should also think in negative way.

I think there are two aspects of everything. Since media came into existence human life become more fast and knoweldgeable.It is totaly on us on what things we adopt from media.It can be good as well as bad.

SHANZA ILYAS

According to me, media is destroying our society by not only giving news but also indulging negative views about our leaders in our minds. So, media should stay in its limit.

SUSHIL THAKUR

TODAY MEDIA PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN OUR LIFE. MEDIA GIVES VARIOUS TYPE OF KNOWLEDGE LIKE EDUCATION ETC.MEDIA GIVES VOICES TO POOR PEOPLE. THAT WAY MEDIA PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN SOCIETY.

MONIKA

In my opinion media has become a part of our day today life. Without it, it is hard to survive. In the era of globlization we need to know what is happenning. Around us and around the world , which can be only posssible when we get to know about it the right information and media play this role very sincerely. But some times it make a huge issue of a small matter which make us to think that media is not playing its role properly. Well every thing in the world have some negative and positive points and so does the media.

SUNIL KUMAR SINGH

Yes, media has a very significant role to play in the society but it is moving away from its responsibility and is trying to make every news product for sale. It's really disgusting.

THALLAPELLI PRAVEEN KUMAR

Without media YOU and I would not have shared the hat of socialism and would not have been a part of democracy. Media is the watchdog of all the activities which happens in the society. The media has played an active role in tracing the drawbacks of the government and the security in the post 26/11 attacks. I hope last year the media had played a crucial role at the time of 26/11 attacks by giving a warning call or wake up call to the nation.

ALMA CHOWDRY

PRAKHAR SINGH TOPERRRR

Yes media is very important.

REVANTH

IN THE world of today, media has become almost as necessary as food and clothing. It is true that media is playing an outstanding role in strengthening the society, it’s a mirror of the society. Its duty is to inform, educate and entertain the people. They help us to know whats going on around the world. They put their lives in danger during attacks or natural disasters, just to inform us of the situation. It is partly because of them that awareness is spreading in the society. It is the media who shape our lives. Our lives would be incomplete without the media.

RUCHI VARGHESE

Media plays an important role in giving RIGHT information at the right time to the people. But is the Media doing the right job today? I think no, Exaggeration of the news is constantly done in this field. They are giving news just for the sake of giving. Not even with the thought that, Will it be useful for people? Today media has just become a shop with lots of useless and meaningless news as products for sale.

AISHWARYA

This message really helped me knowing things much more.

There is no denial of the fact that Media means some organizations which are engaged in providing and focusing the day to day activities and the literary patterns or sequences on any affairs as a tentative flow of the world through their publications virtually.

JAVED

Well, everyone has said true as believe but sometimes I feel some TV channels get one sided and they only show bright side of a person or a political party. They do not try to show the dark side of them. Overall, media is playing a beautiful role in the society.

RAJNANDINI SINGH

As far as my opinion is concerned the notion of "a responsible media builds a healthy society " is really been wiped out to a great extent. Its a fact that media is the most powerful weapon in today's time to expose and let people know about any wrong political economic or social deed but currently, the way media is dealing with all these factors it would not at all be wrong to say that "media has become irresponsible". I am not saying that media is keeping us in dark by not letting us to know the truth but it is being projected in front of the society without keeping in mind the ethical value, is really a matter to ponder upon.

SAMARPREET SINGH

According to me media should show the real things and help out people instead of misleading them.

SIDRA NASEER

I think media is playing its role that directly or indirectly affects our thinkings, moral values and concerns.

IT IS TRUE THAT TODAY MEDIA IS PLAYING A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THE SOCIETY. IT BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN THE GOVT AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
