Mangalore, Mar 17: "The media has undergone various changes over the decades in terms of presentation and technology, but whatever changes it goes through, truth should be upheld and should never be sacrificed," said Sudhir Ghate, chairman of Magnum Intergrafiks Pvt Ltd.

He was addressing members of the media during Press Club Day celebrations at Lions Seva Mandir, Kadri here on Saturday March 16. The programme was jointly organized by Dakshina Kannada Working Journalists' Union (DKWJU), Mangalore Press Club and Patrika Bhavan Trust.

Speaking after inaugurating the programme, Ghate said that over the decades the journalism industry has undergone various technological changes with the advent of television and electronic media. "However, whatever the change, credibility is most important and truth should never be compromised," he stressed.

Emerging actor Arjun Kapikad thanked the media for the 'wonderful coverage and tremendous support' shown for his Tulu movie 'Telikeda Bolli'. He also called upon the media to render more support to Tulu film industry.

Senior journalist of Udayavani Manohar Prasad said that this year he completed three decades as journalist. "Presentation of news has changed now. Even a two-day fight between a couple becomes a big issue for a week in the media nowadays. When we talk of fighting against corruption, we should first have morality ourselves. We should be sensitive and do our job with responsibility," he said.

Zilla panchayat CEO Dr K N Vijayprakash advised the mediapersons never to deviate from facts in the news. "Deviating from facts will have its consequence on society, hence the media should desist from doing so. We should work for good causes collectively," he said.

On the occasion, achievers from the media field were felicitated by the dignitaries. They were Dayanand Kukkaje from Daijiworld, Manohar Prasad, Ronald Anil Fernandes, Prashanth Kadekar, Sandhya D'Souza, Ravi Posavanike, Sudhakar Yermal, Agnel Rodrigues, Satish Ira, Apul Ira, Mounesh Vishwakarma, Laxmi Machina, Ahmed Anwar, Satish Pundukai, Rajesh Shetty and Mohammed Arif Padubidri.

A cultural programme was also presented by the media persons. Gangadhar from Doordarshan and team gave a musical performance.

Prizes were distributed to winners of various competitions like cricket and other sports held for media persons recently.

Press Club Day celebrations are very important because the media play an extremely important role in a democratic state.
There is no doubt the media has undergone various changes over the decades in terms of presentation and technology. But what counts is that truth must be upheld and should never be sacrificed.
An independent media and freedom of speech are decisive tenets of every democratic constitution. Without the independence of the media democracy would be at risk.
I enjoy living in a democratic state like Germany and we can be proud of newspapers and magazines that have a top quality and inform the public about everything. Investigative journalism plays an important role in German quality magazines like Spiegel, Focus and Stern.
Freedom of speech and an independent media is part of the Indian Constitution. I am an avid reader of The Hindu and The Statesman, both are national institutions in India and have an immense impact on readers. Quality vernacular newspapers and quality English papers are defenders of India´s democracy and the national and international coverage of the mentioned papers are excellent. Quality newspapers strengthen democracy and control a democratic elected government and make corruption and scandals public.
I just think of the terrible rape of a young Indian woman in Delhi, she passed away in Singapore or the Swiss woman who was gang raped.
India media defended women in their coverage and demanded immediately actions taken by the Government of India to protect women and make India a safe place for them.
Without a free media democracy cannot survive and will be replaced with dictatorship.

Or one shall look at DAIJIWORLD! It offers a top quality web portal and contains a variety of columns ranging from daily news, interviews and information about Mangalore, the city I love.
I have been reading DAIJIWORLD for three years though I live far away from India, but Daijiworld gives me a deep insight what is going on in Mangalore and other parts of Karnataka.
Indians can be proud of their independent media and Indian journalists have done a great jobs for decades.

Best regards

Appreciate the Chief Guest Address and theme to the Media that truth should be upheld whatever changes they go through the passage of time. Today the fact is the leading press/media play a partial role while highlighting or giving publicity to political parties. I recently recollect, Convener of Aam Aadmi Party,local unit telling me how reluctantly the leading press media give publicity to his clean political party because of pressure. Press and Media Group should ensure a level playing field and highlight the press release given by them. Finally it is the readers who will judge, but the articles should reach the readers. That's my request.
