The Humanities Association of the College conducted a panel discussion on Mass Media and Indian Freedom Struggle here on Tuesday.
Eleven students presented papers explaining the role of the media during the epochal period of India’s history. Media, mostly understood as the press, elucidated the role played by the media, specially in the first half of the 20th century. Press was the only form of immediate communication, most of them opined. The war of independence was fought not with guns or bombs, but with the press, others quoted some authors.
Mr Denis Fernandes, Mr Aditya, and Fr Richard Rego were judged. Fr Richard Rego summed up the participants’ opinion on the independence struggle of India. Media play a crucial role in informing the people, he said. While appreciating the efforts of the Humanities association in giving an opportunity to the students to explore the role of media during India’s freedom struggle and widen their own minds, he congratulated the students for good presentations. Panel discussions should lead us to read widely and make our own conclusion and present them logically, he exorted the students.
Ms Rose Veera, president of the Association, welcomed the jury and the participants.
