Media and Social Transformation in India - A Study

Dr. J. Ramanjaneyulu

Abstract: Media play a major role in informing the public and thereby shaping social transformation and through it a change in national agenda. They enhance literary levels of the society and enhance the economic development of the people. The technological revolution of the last two decades has its impact on the generation, processing, dissemination and consumption of news. Every democratic setup in the social transformation has an inseparable part that is the press, which has now expanded to include electronic media and new media. The legislative, executive, judiciary are considered to be three pillars of democracy and press is another equally important pillar to lend its valuable support to the social transformation and hence it is regarded as fourth estate. Also under the Constitution of India, freedom of the media is part of the freedom of speech guaranteed by Article 19 (1) (a). However, no freedom can be absolute, and reasonable restrictions can be placed on it. One of the basic tasks of the media is to provide truthful and objective information to the people that will enable them to form rational opinions, which is a sine quanon in a democracy. A process of 'social transformation' changes the invented media fundamentally. Society inventions by discovering new possibilities of communication; it adopts and formats new media.
