The #madeofgreat family who reunited me with my mummy

Human is a social animal, they are the wisest species on earth. We are also animal but just one thing separate us from animals i.e.. humanity. We have witnessed many of the encounters where questions on humanity were raised, but I can proudly say that there are many other people still on this earth who are not less than a god for the needy people. 

Life is a journey of success, learning, falling, failure and most important helping each other. We meet numerous people during our life span who teach something to us either a little one but they all are our part of life and they are not less than a god messenger. There are many people who are inspiration for me who taught many things to me, my first mentor was my granddad who never feared to struggle and because of this he earned a great life.

I believe I would not have been here and lost from my family years ago until I met with one family.

I was very calm and obedient in my childhood, I never troubled my family member. Just like other children I too love my grandparent’s home (village), my nani (Grandma) was my best friend. So this instance occurred when I was with my mummy to attend a wedding in another village. As it was wedding in the home so there was lots of chaos and one needed to go neighbor’s home to bathe and wash clothes, so my mummy also went there. Being a 4-year-old, I also accompanied my mummy. She first bathed me and then engaged with further bathing and washing process. I was simply seated there and suddenly someone came and said that ‘your nani has come’ I become so happy and urged my mummy to leave me there but as she was busy she brushed it off. So I told my mum ‘I am going’ and stepped out from home. It was just 2-minute distance from this home to wedding home so my mummy thought I can go.

I was new there and was not familiar with the trail so mistakenly I took the wrong street and went to some other village. I still remember that I was searching here and there and was calling my mummy and nani…. But didn't find them. As I was a child soon I started to cry. People were looking at me, but no one bothered to ask me or help me. There was one big river and I was walking on the edge of a river I was about to fall in a river but then suddenly one woman catch me and consoled me. As I was crying and afraid, she took me to her home and asked my address and my parent’s name. As I said I was new there so I didn't know the address and my mummy was also new there so nobody knew her name. So I was not able to provide them any detail.

Her whole family was very sweet they provide me water and food and were constantly asking me to remember anything which can lead them to identify the home. They also have the wedding in a home and after some time I recollect and said that ‘My home also have wed ceremony’.  Soon they send people from the village to track down if any girl is missing from any home who have marriage ceremony.

I think after some hours one aunt from my home came and picked me from them and heartily thanked that family for taking care of me. When I reach home my mummy was out of her sanity and was crying a lot. When she saw me she ran and hugged me tight. After so many years, I still have a memory of that particular event.

I still get goosebumps by thinking that if that family would not have rescue me I would have drown in the river or would catched up by some goons. I still remember the blurry face of that lady and home. They were god for me and their home was the temple for me. I don’t know if I will meet that family anyway, but I always thanked them from my heart who gave me a new life and reunited me with my mummy.

Even this event occurred around 18 years ago, but it has left a huge impact on my life. I believe helping people, I believe that god is there. Our little help can rescue someone from entering the biggest problem. I still pray for that family for wellness and success. I strongly believe that ‘This world is a big family and we need to help each other.’ I have very soft corner for children and I always keep an eye on the street children, maybe some of them would have also lost the way of home just like me!!!

The Media - A fourth pillar of democracy or a Corporate hub ?

What is the definition of media? This was the first question we were asked during our first lecture in BMM (Bachelor of Mass Media) course. At that time, I give the answer that Media is a channel of communication between mass and the system (read it was just the first lecture, and I was not aware with media concept in deep). My department head agreed with my definition. Later we learned that 'Media is a fourth pillar of democracy' and 'Media is important aspect of society, Media is watchdog.' 

I was very happy to learn all these things that media is the only branch which is so much important for the development of any country. As we all know there are many types of media but here I am going to talk about News media. 

During our childhood, we have only one channel that was Doordarshan and when news comes in between our TV show we feel like to shut the TV. Although I really didn't remember the type of news content Doordarshan was showing at earlier but I did compare it with recent Doordarshan with private channel here.

So let's move to the current era, where we have news channels growing like a grass. Every other day one new news channel emerges and this number is just increasing day by day. They have the cut-throat competition to earn TRP and earn a monetary profit. 

I used to watch news very patiently after my tenth and wanted to make a career in Media industry specially in News channel. Slowly news channel starts showing some horror story, search of haunted places and many more..... Viewers who was bored with the traditional type of news were happy to see such kind of interesting or can say fake news. I think the credit of these yellow journalism goes to India TV, founded by Rajat Sharma in the year 2004. 

I still remember one news (not really a news) where, the background voice keep saying.... kya aap in bhootah tasveeron ka rahsya janana chahte hai, agar haan to remote ko hath na lagaye ..... we really didn't touch the remote and waited for 5 good minutes to know the secrets but alas! they proceed the same visuals with some different story line. We feel like we are cheated. But you know this sensationalism of  news succeed India TV and Rajat Sharma. I still find India TV a piece of garbage.

The sad thing is slowly all the other excellent news channel embrace this concept and now news media is just a piece of fun or satire so I've stopped watching the news channel. 

Media now interest to cover that news which can give them highest TRP. Just like Indrani case, really Media has given more than 50% coverage to Indrani Mukhrajea case, Where the murder of Kalburgi was piled up under these waste news. 

Apparently media is under the influence of corporates or political parties and the news reports are 100% biased. I really hate when media show news of ISIS, Really media is the sole reason of popularity of ISIS and it's motive. They should stop showing the news related to them. The recent award return scenario,  murder in Dadri was really a part of sensationalism. We don't need this type of media. 

Media is a tool who have the responsibility to present an unbiased news to the viewer who have the freedom to form an opinion. 

I can understand to run every organization one need a good sum of money and media is one of them. So gradually media is becoming a corporate hub not a fourth pillar of democracy. 

The viewer need to be sensible and rational to judge any news, because media is showing you which you don't need and which fills their pockets.
