Department of Journalism and Mass Communication at the Mohanlal Sukhadia University held a day long communication session at the faculty premises today.
Speaking at the session, Dr. Dugesh Tripathi from the Journalism department at Delhi Indraprastha University said that the censor board has always been supportive of healthy films and promoted production of positive films since they form a strong base for nation building.
Dr Tripathi, who has earlier also been a member of the Film Censor Board, said this while he was in dialogue with the students of the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication at MLSU.
In his interaction with the students, he mentioned emphatically that films have the power of developing society, but many a time, the level of film content stoops to such unwarranted levels that it leaves an unerasable impact on young minds. Generally, movies are a depiction of what happens in society, but now a level has come that society emulates wrong movies and story lines, which is an unhealthy sign as far as nation building and the new generation is concerned.
Dr Tripathi added that media is changing and the impact of technology is there for all to see. He emphasised that strong and positive content will always be there for all to see and its impact will be felt all across.
Dr Amit Singh of the Department of Information and Technology, Delhi – Indraprastha University added that technology has made journalism simple and reporting easier. He added that students desirous of going in for journalism, must adapt to technology, for in the long run, only those who adapt theoritical learning and moral to the latest technology, will manage to keep their grip in the profession. He discussed the impact of technology in live television reporting and answered questions from students.
Dr Rajesh Shukla, Head of Department of Journalism, FTM Moradabad, in his interaction with the students, said that in this era of internet, students can form their own news or stories and post them online – in the form of a blog or on hyper local websites supporting such content. This becomes a powerful weapon today. There is quick access to such content and from a variety of users.
Dr Kunjan Acharya, in his key address, welcome all the distinguished guests at the event.
