Media Democracy

Media Democracy

Law, Society
One key tenet of liberal democracy is the fourth pillar of the Indian Constitution. Because of its emerging function as the ‘public watchdog,’ it monitors the running of the nation by exposing checks and balances thus contributing to a healthy democracy. A free, objective, skilled media is an indispensable element of any democratic society. Mass media has played and continues to play a very important role in the socio-political lives of its citizens. The Inter-American Court of Human Rights succinctly states a principle that is now universally acknowledged in international law: the exercise of freedom of expression in a democracy has little meaning if it can only be exercised on an individual level. Freedom of expression is not only about what you are allowed to tell your neighbor -

Violence against women and children is an appalling human rights violation, it is not inevitable, We must end this! Domestic violence is a public health concern since time immemorial, in this pandemic era, it has adverse effects on the physical and mental health of women. Prefatory evidence denotes that domestic violence during the COVID-19 has devilishly increased globally. The UN Women statistics reveal that women and girls were and still are fighting ‘a shadow pandemic inside their homes. Domestic violence in India was considerably persisting across all socio-economic strata. Findings reveal that sources of motivation in domestic violence during the lockdown were due to alcohol and unemployment. The blue indicator depicts the number of cases filed under section 498A of the IPC or ‘

The world is at war with an unseen virus, contemporaneously the world witnesses India battle forms of deadly colored virus! A rare country where a mere assessment in the form of ‘higher secondary school examination’ supersedes survival of students; as our future generation remains most vulnerable, unprotected, and lethal to the colored virus. Over the past two years, schools, universities, institutions, and offices both government and private globally adopted the virtual world and still continues to.  India too embraced online education, as classrooms shifted to homes.  Disparity remains apparent - urban homes had eyeful parents, snoozing students and rural homes had no internet facility, smartphones, or even electricity.  This dramatic change caused a digital divide in the education

Save the Covid Orphans !!

The second alarming wave wreaks havoc in India leaving multitudes of infants and children in India orphaned, some have lost their parents even at birth. COVID-19 is brutally cruel to infants and children who are in turmoil after losing their parents and carers. A significant number of the COVID Orphans have lost both their parents/carers and have no one to look after them. Surviving parent has become incapable to take care of their own infants and children either due to their hospitalization and/or financial and/or psychological constraints. “Reluctant relatives reveal a fickle and/or a fragile mental state!” Overflowing calls for adoption of these abandoned COVID orphans are being flooded on social media. However such routes can squarely be detrimental or even dangerous to the welfare of

Our world is a changing place; it is constantly developing new characteristics in culture, visual aspects and history. As it changes, many views are lost and may never be found again. Freedoms and rights are being tested, and sometimes lost. The world as we know is changing rapidly for the worse because – hate and violence are on a social high as people are inflicting attacks on each other fuelled by hate, groups of people are being discriminated against and people are being labelled for what they are, not who they are. Hearing about an attack on a group of people or their place of dwelling are common event and are rarely shocking anymore. These attacks appear on many levels and in many forms. These can then escalate to large scale attacks, rampages, killing sprees and wars. Labellin

The need for Gender Justice!

India is at war with its girls and women! The gang rape of a young doctor on a bus, the gang rape of an 8 year old girl in a temple by many men including a policeman (who later washed the clothes and destroyed evidence) repeated rapes of a minor and so on…are some gruesome examples of the recent past. Rape and sexual assault against remain particularly horrific and outrageous in India. The National Crimes Records Bureau in India reveals that 42% of girls in the country have been sexually abused. India can be arguably accused of the largest-scale human rights violation on Earth with a persistent degradation of the vast majority of its 650million girls and women. India’s women are traumatized and the oppression starts innocuously: it occurs within families where girls are being locked up

Micro Expressions : What do they have to do in interviews ?

While at a job interview, you might think that answering the questions will get you the job, it is rarely true! Your non-verbal cues have an important role in your success. The non-verbal cues are sometimes the best indicator to find the emotional state of the person. The interviewer will be observing your nonverbal communication throughout the interview! There are seven basic micro-expressions: happiness, shock, contempt, anger, disgust, fear and sadness. Micro-expressions often leak down even if the person wants to hide his feeling! He will not be aware of the situation that is leaking out. These are some basic rules that one should follow during a job interview: Dos 1. Be sure that you make eye contact with the interviewer throughout the interview as it will make an impressi...

POCSO Act and some grim realities

The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 (POCSO) was celebrated to a large extent and remains a welcoming step. It attempts to curb child sexual abuse but at least did we realize its bareness and its defectiveness.  It is imperative to identify and either replace or amend its shortcomings with a more effective law or an amendment[s] as statistics stands as witness. The National Crime Record Bureau's “Crime in India" reports reveal that new cases registered under POCSO have significantly increased by 4.5% in crimes against children resulting in 1,48,185 crimes against children in India.  The highest numbers of child rapes were recorded in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu.  Uttar Pradesh reported the highest number of crimes against girl children under the P

Predators have no iota of fright; as the reprimands remain enormously diminutive for child sexual abuse… The alarming statistics of the National Crime Records Bureau in India records that ‘a child is sexually abused every 15 minutes.’ 37% of the Indian population constitute children under the age of 18 and are predominantly entities of illiteracy, malnutrition, deprivation of health care. More than 53% of children have reported being prey’s of ‘child fondle private parts, making a child exhibit private part, nude photographs, etc.. 20% remain to be causalities of severe verbal and sexual abuse, neglect, maltreatment and thus it is evident that child protection in India remains either dysfunctional or mute.

Is migration a threat to peace and security?

Society
Migration marshals multiculturalism, it can be considered as a pride of cultural diversity but in some states multiculturalism is undesirable. Based on democracy, peace, and security, migration has advantages and disadvantages in both the country of origin and the receiving state. Migration can be a threat to social security and the state’s welfare system; particularly refugees and asylum seekers. Economic deprivation, political persecution, ethnic cleansing, etc., are some of the grounds for migration. The common notion is that migrants globally pose a threat to society; migration is now a forerunner of the security agenda, particularly in Europe and North America. The IOM World Migration Report revealed that the estimated number of international migrants was 150million in 2000 - w
