Recently Published Story: 6 Years Ago in World
The scenario in the Indian media has been quite grim in the last few years. The country has only a few prominent media houses that not only influence the news but are also monitored by either big corporate houses or powerful political parties. Many a times, these mainstream media due to their vested interest does not address some of the critical or socially relevant news. Sometimes, they do not cover the regional issues extensively and mention them only in tickers. Under the pressure from higher authorities, occasionally, stories are also stopped at the press at the very last moment.
All this debars people to know the true stories or news that might influence their lives. Why cant we pick up the pen ourselves and let the whole world know what we think? Why do we have to depend on conventional media to tell us what we really should read and think?
