IIMC alumnus injured in Mumbai terror attack

Sourav Mishra, a Reuters reporter, was with friends at the Cafe Leopold (in South Mumbai) when gunmen opened fire around 9:30 p.m. He has received injuries and is in St. George's Hospital.
 
"I heard some gunshots around 9:30. I was with my friends. Something hit me. I ran away and fell on the road. Then somebody picked me up. I have injuries below my shoulder," Mishra said from a hospital bed he was sharing with three other people.  (Source: Reuters News)
 
 
UPDATE: Sourav is from the 2002-03 English Journalism batch of IIMC, Dhenkanal. I spoke to him this morning. The doctors have removed the bullet and he is out of danger. Friends are with him and they are thinking of shifting him to another hospital in Navi Mumbai.
 
He is rechable over phone, but let's not bother him at this moment. Anyone concerned about his condition can call Abhishek Shanker (09920318300) or me (09818786430) for updates. I am based in Delhi, but in regular touch with our friends attending him. Let's pray for his speedy recovery.

ROARR '08, THE IIMC FEST

The fest was a huge success! Those who missed it really missed a lot. The success  was the result of a lot of hard work, togetherness and love for the institute. Most of the current batch students put in their 200% to make this dream of ours a reality. We've been trying to organize this fest for the past two months; it's so hard to believe it is over.
 
A very big thank you to all the faculty and staff members for cooperating with us. All the alumni who visited us, I hope you've had a good time. I hope that this tradition of IIMC fest that we've started is followed by our successors, and we get to see ROARR reach a greater height when we come back as alumni next year.

For photos and news on the fest, please keep an eye on Delhi Times. There is an article in the Nov 25 edition already.

etc.

We are eagerly waiting towards materialising this dream of ours. Any
help or suggestion is most welcome.

Justice for Soumya - Please join Us !

From: Aditya Raj Kaul [mailto:kauladityaraj@gmail.com]
Subject: Justice for Soumya - Please join Us !

Forwarded Message by Achint Anand, Headlines Today

******************************************************************

All of you are aware of the tragic passing away of our colleague Soumya Viswanathan.

A promising young Producer, Soumya was loved by her seniors and peers, and revered by her juniors. Soumya was murdered while driving back home from work after completing an unusually long shift at work, having stayed back to help with her channel Headlines Today's coverage of the blasts in Gujarat and Maharashtra on the 29th of September, 2008.

She was killed by a bullet to her head in the wee hours of Tuesday, the 30th of September.

We are waiting for the police to find the person (or people) who committed this dastardly act. We are waiting for answers, as we struggle to come to terms with our dear friend's unfair death.

But while we wait, we want to help the investigation. We want to do what we can to do the only thing we can for Soumya – find the murderer, who is still walking free.

To that end, we want to launch a campaign – Justice for Soumya, of the sort we have participated in on numerous occasions for the likes of Aarushi Talwar, Jessica Lal, Nitish Katara, Priyadarshini Mattoo and others.

This note is to invite you to join the campaign. This is to request you to lend your voice, lend whatever power you have, to help us in our campaign.

Come. Bring your friends. Bring whoever you think can help us.

VENUE: The Press Club of India, Raisina Road, New Delhi


DATE: 4th October 2008 (Saturday)

TIME: 1.00pm

  • Helping to bring aid themes to life through informal blogs and chatty explainers
  • Keeping the AlertNet website updated during Asian hours
  • Routine tasks such as updating online crisis briefings and publishing photo galleries
  • Developing relationships with regional aid workers, government agencies, humanitarian experts and journalists
  • Making those relationships work in the interests of the emergency news provision.  

 

This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated journalist to make a real difference in a dynamic team that aims to put Reuters principles of speed, accuracy and objectivity at the disposal of the relief community.

 

The successful candidate will be given a contract for 12 months with a view to renewal.

 

Job specifications – required skills, knowledge and experience

 

  • Strong communication skills, solid news judgement and a demonstrable interest in humanitarian issues essential

सौम्या का हत्यारा कौन..?

मित्रों,
 
सौम्या विश्वनाथन नहीं रहीं. ईमका के ग्रुप मेल पर कभी-कभार जूनियरों का उत्साह बढ़ाने वाले उनके मेल ही यादों के नाम पर मेरे पास हैं.
 
पता नहीं, किन हालातों में उनकी हत्या की गई लेकिन पुलिस की लापरवाही का इससे बड़ा प्रमाण और क्या हो सकता है कि पोस्टमार्टम से पहले तक उसे पता ही नहीं चला कि सौम्या जी को गोली मारी गई है.
 
जिस समाचार संगठन में वो काम करती थीं, उसने दूसरे समाचार संगठनों के साथियों को बुलाकर हत्या का सच सामने लाने की कोशिश करने की बजाय उस खबर को तब तक दबाए रखने की कोशिश की जब तक कि दूसरे चैनल ने उसे "ब्रेक" नहीं कर दिया.
 
सौम्या जी नहीं लौट सकतीं. लेकिन सच सामने लाने के पेशे से जुड़े लोगों के सामने वो एक सवाल तो छोड़ ही गई हैं कि अगर वो किसी कॉल सेंटर की कर्मचारी होतीं या किसी दूसरे पेशे से जुड़ी होतीं तो क्या खबरों की दुनिया उनकी हत्या को इतने हल्के से ही लेता. ये सिर्फ दुखद और सदमा नहीं है, अफसोसजनक भी है.
 
ईश्वर आपकी आत्मा को शांति दे और पुलिस को इतनी बुद्धि दे कि वो आपके हत्यारों को पकड़ सके.

Did Bihar flood move you into helping?

When Kosi river in Indian state of Bihar breached its dam and started inundating vast plain tracts of inhabited areas, it caught not only the natives of Bihar and its government sleeping, but most of us across India. Pre-occupied as we normally are with our daily rut and the bombardment of tons of stuff that vies for our attention constantly, this ongoing story has skipped the attention of a large number of people somehow. That includes many a mass media organisations, and us, who have not done enough as citizens of India, or even as human beings. 

The flood has been catastrophic, the kind this generation has probably not seen and there are enough scenes/tales of misery that could have moved us, but somehow didn't. I do not come from Bihar nor have I ever visited that state, but these scenes of misery and the government's failure to help people on a war-level means that the role of each individual becomes much larger than it should. 

A lot of people who want to help and reach out to the victims also have a big dilemma. People like us have complete distrust in the system of government-led relief funds, as also most private organisations (many of which may actually not be reaching the money and material collected to the deserved candidates). Let's face it: Nobody wants to throw away their hard-earned money. 

Therefore, identifying such an organisation was a major task. After some due-dilgence, I finally zeroed down on Goonj, a Delhi-based NGO, which collects old clothes and other material and distributes it among the needy people pan-India. 

Run by two mass communication professionals ( IIMC alumni andex  journalist Anshu Gupta and hisex IIMCian  wife) for about a decade now, Goonj has done very credible work. Goonj is mobilising support for Bihar flood victims. What gives me confidence in them is that Anshu himself is camping in Saharsa for the past eight days and coordinating all relief possible to the needy.

Mind you, there are stories of complete havoc that he narrated, including many a people forced to go hungry for days on end. As Kosi water has started to recede and flow along its new course, people are coming out from places which shielded them. Natual disasters like flood and eathquake leave a trail of disease and absolute misery. 

Let us go all out and help in whichever manner we can. Anshu has given me a list of material that he feels is required the most (read the list below this message). If any of the material is collected by us in decent quantity, I would not mind collecting it myself and delivering to his Sarita Vihar office. In addition to this, monetary donations can be made either in cheques payable directly to `Goonj', or cash. 

Please remember, it is not about helping natives of any single state, but human victims of a natural disaster. With that aim in mind, please do not hold back.

Anshu's mobile number is +91 98681 46978 and his local person is Ruchika 98108 97376. The  website is http://www.goonj.info/biharfloods08.php 
Feel free to directly contact them. 

There is another group that I have come across and they seem to be doing a lot of good work, again DIRECTLY. Read about them at: http://biharfloodrelief2008.blogspot.com/ 

Additionally, newspapers like Indian Express and Hindustan Times are running relief funds which can be looked at. I have decided to contribute to Goonj.

List of essential items: buckets, cooking utensils, tarpaulin, stoves, lanterns, clothes, milk powder, dry ration like chana dal, rice and kala chana, and anti diarrhoeal and anti-fever drugs.

Thanks and regards
Neeraj

Survey on Media and Global Divide

Please allow me to introduce myself.
 
I am Sweta, an IIMC alumnae, working as a Lecturer in New Delhi. I teach television journalism. As a part of a research, I am collecting information for a poster presentation on the issue of 'Media and Global Divide'.
 
In this process I am conducting a simple survey (10 questions) of media academicians, practitioners and policy makers to understand the purpose and pattern of international news.
 
I would really appreciate if you could  take out a few minutes from your busy schedule to respond to the questionnaire (link below) by clicking on the options. It should not take more than 10-15 mins. But it will be a great help for me. Those who may have already responded can ignore this mail.
 
The abstract of the paper is pasted at the bottom:
Shall eagerly wait for your response.
 
Thanks
Sweta Singh
swetasingh2000@gmail.com
...................................................................................................... 
 
 
 
Abstract:
 
The paper analyses international news content disseminated by Indian News channels and its perception by the foreign policy makers, academicians and journalists in this era of globalisation. A sustained observation of the news content shows that the five main news agencies of the world continue to dominate news flow contents to these news channels. This hegemony contributes to the global divide in media.

Increase in international news content through multiple round the clock television news channels in India does not reflect diversity in content but only multiplies the limited perception of the world strengthening the North-South divide against the objectives of the New World Information and Communication Order (NWICO).
 
Many Voices One World, a report by the International Commission for the study of communication problems highlighted that the Third World Countries suffered from colonial hangover and due to historical reasons the flow of information and communication suited the interests of a few dominant countries of the world.
 
India led the third world nations to form the non-aligned news agencies pool (NANAP) with the primary objective of creating and disseminating information content that was critical for the development of these countries.
 
The fast changing media landscape in India with over 300 television channels and over a hundred news channels is witness to globalisation of information. In these circumstances the importance of television news is fundamental as it is the window to the world for most Indians. It creates the picture that we carry in our minds. If news is anything presented by the news medium then there is a need for a systematic understanding of what makes news, why and for whom?
 
While satellite and digital communication systems allow all possibilities to all countries in exchanging information, a sustained observation shows that   this has not been possible and the conventional patterns of news flow still exist. The five major news agencies of the world continue to take editorial stand for most of the international content that flows through these television news channels to reach the masses.  What is disturbing is the silence over the 'other' perspective.
 
Surveys, panel and focus group discussions are used along with analysis of the international news content of India's three national news channels which get posted on their online websites. A weeks prime time news content is studied to establish the imbalance in the coverage and treatment of international news.

No room for boys in IIMC...

Ajit Dubey reports in MidDAY



India's premier mass communication institute, the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) is contemplating to allot the newly constructed hostel meant for boys to girls.

The hostel was sanctioned by the controlling authority of the IIMC, about four years ago for boys, as they have to live in expensive rented accommodations in the areas like Munirka, Ber Sarai and Katwaria Sarai near the institute.

Problem child?

IIMC, which is all set to gain the status of "International Media University", already offers hostel facility to the girls. The management fears that girls may face "problems" due to the boys hostel in campus.

A Head of Department (HOD) of the institute said, "The management thinks that the 'coexistence' of both the genders may lead to unhealthy relationships between them and allotting the new hostel to boys would mean fuelling the disorder."

Another IIMC professor said, "This is an absolute nonsense. The youngest student in IIMC would be of more than 21 years and if adults want to get intimate, they can do it without living close to each other."

An official from the institute added that the management should take a cue from the Jawaharlal Nehru University, next to the IIMC, where boys and girls have common hostels.

When MiD DAY tried to contact the IIMC management, they refused to comment on the issue saying that they have not taken the final decision on the issue. Stuti Kakkar, director of the institute was not available for comment.




Friends, What you Say....

Please send me back your comments. We will forward it to IIMC management and Ministry of Information & Broadcasting as a petition.

IIMC to become an International Media University

Minister of Information & Broadcasting, Shri P. R. Dasmunsi has said that 'I am very happy to announce that we have decided to upgrade the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) as an International Media University. The Planning Commission has already approved the proposal and my Ministry is working to make this Institute into a world class media education, training and research University, by an Act of Parliament. This will fulfill the growing demand of the media industry to provide more trained and qualified professionals. He was delivering the convocation address at IIMC here today.'

On this occasion, Director, IIMC, presented the report. Smt. Stuti Kacker, Director, informed the august gathering that Post Graduate Diploma Course in Hindi Journalism, Post Graduate Course in Journalism in English, Post Graduate Diploma in Advertising & Public Relations, Post Graduate Diploma Course in Radio and TV Journalism and Diploma Course in Development Journalism were concluded successfully. The Director also conferred diplomas to these students.

The Minister presented awards to the students of the Post Graduate Diploma Courses. On this occasion, Additional Secretary, Shri Uday Kumar Varma, Media Heads, the faculty of the IIMC and distinguished guests were present.

Here is the full text of the convocation address by Shri P. R. Dasmunsi, Minister of Information & Broadcasting:

"Director of IIMC and Joint Secretary of the Ministry Shrimati Stuti Kacker, distinguished guests, faculty members, employees, my dear graduating students of IIMC and ladies and gentlemen.

• It is really a matter of pride and privilege for me to again address the young post graduates students of journalism- print and electronic media, advertising and PR courses of IIMC on the momentous occasion of the 41st Convocation of this premier institute. Convocation in the life of an Institute is an important milestone. It gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect- from where we started, where we are today and where we aspire to be tomorrow.

• As you all know this great institute was established in 1965 by the then Information and Broadcasting Minister Shrimati Indira Gandhi who later became Prime Minister of India. She was aware of the empowering power of information. She conceptualized this institute to provide trained information and media professionals to communicate change and development among our people. In the last four decades this vision has grown and IIMC is serving the nation by training hundreds of journalists, media and information professionals and development communicators.

• Today I would use this opportunity to pay my heartfelt tributes to our great leader late Indira Gandhi and all other renowned personalities and faculty members who were associated with this vision called IIMC.

• The Convocation is also an occasion to look forward, as time has come to think big. As you all know the Indian media industry is growing at much faster pace than our economy. It is one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy. A recent industry report states that in the last four years, the Indian media and entertainment industry recorded a cumulative growth of 19 percent on an overall basis. The report also predicts the industry is estimated to grow at compound annual growth rate of 18 percent in the next five years.

• This growth rate is almost unparalleled in the world. But to maintain and enhance this growth rate, the industry requires a large number of trained media professionals otherwise shortage of skilled and qualified professionals will hurt the growth rate of the industry.

• I sincerely feel that IIMC can play a greater role in providing good, creative and trained professionals to the industry in adequate numbers. Therefore IIMC needs to enhance capacity, start new and specialised courses and training programmes geared to the manpower needs of the industry. Our government is also giving top priority to the education sector. In fact the Prime Minister has rightly termed the 11th Five Year Plan as "Education Plan".

• I am very happy to announce that we have decided to upgrade the IIMC as an International Media University. The Planning Commission has already approved the proposal and my Ministry is working to make this Institute into a world class media education, training and research University, by an Act of Parliament. This will fulfill the growing demand of the media industry to provide more trained and qualified professionals.

• But as an international media university, the role and responsibilities of IIMC are also going to increase tremendously. As Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru said and I quote "A university stands for humanism, for tolerance, for progress, for adventure of ideas and for the search of truth. It stands for the onward march of the human race towards ever higher objectives. If the universities discharge their duty adequately, then it is well with the nation and the people. But if the temple of learning becomes a home of narrow bigotry and petty objectives, how then will the nation prosper or people grow in stature".

• I hope that as a University, the IIMC will remember these words. I also hope that the IIMC will continue to provide journalists and media professionals who are not only truthful, ethical, fair, credible but also sensitive to the feelings of the people and society involved with nation building in a constructive manner.

• I strongly believe in free media but freedom demands responsibility. The Indian press had played a leading role in our freedom struggle and many of our freedom fighters were also great journalists. Overall, I appreciate the role of Indian media in nation building and strengthening the roots of democracy in the country.

• But unfortunately, the growing competition among media companies, if I may say so unhealthy competition is threatening all journalistic norms and values. It is certainly a matter of serious concern, as my ministry is receiving many complaints from the general public and concerned citizen groups. There are numerous instances of media excesses and media trials, fake sting operations, criminal tress-passing of privacy, glamourisation of criminals and mafia dons, promotion of hatred among communities and inflaming of raw emotions. This is a very dangerous trend not only for media but for democracy and all humanity.

• Before I conclude, I would like to say that, never in the past, has there been so much hope and expectation from India than at present. For young adults like you, the road ahead is long but the journey promises to be exciting. Have a constructive attitude and think in terms of solutions, not in terms of problems. Face each challenge not with "why you can't" but "how you can" and do remember that great opportunities come to those who make the most of small ones. Remember you carry a heavy responsibility in creating an informed and empowered citizenry.

• I offer my best wishes to all those who are receiving diploma today. As you move ahead in life, may you realize your dreams. Think of the future with hope and expectation but with your feet firmly planted on the ground. Carry with you the courage of your convictions and the determination to succeed. I congratulate you all on this occasion and wish you great success in life."

Success is not final, failure is not fatal !!

Many of us sweat even today when we think of our board exams but the IIMC Entrance Test is not a kind of test for which you have to run through every corner of your textbook or to mug up the class-notes and all sorts of definitions and quotations to fill up lengthy sheets.
 
So take a Chill Pill.
 
It's just a test of your creativity and your awareness about the current national and international problems and scenario and your linguistic skills.


A final Khuraq for you all-

"A person who doubts himself is like a man who would enlist in the ranks of his enemies and bear arms against himself. He makes his failure certain by himself being the first person to be convinced of it."
 
 
So have a good sleep tonight, have faith in yourself and give it Your best.
 
IIMCAA wishes good luck to all those appearing !!
