Newspapers Serve the Nation

Press is called the fourth estate. Newspapers play a great part in the life of a nation. In the Democratic country they play the role of Guardian of the people’s rights. They raise voice against the cruelties committed on the people.

The newspapers splash vital information all over the globe. The newspapers splash the current events and thus increase knowledge of the people. The newspapers offer comments and provide data with regard to prominent events. Discussions on various issues enlighten the people. In this way, besides increasing knowledge, the newspapers do not lag behind even in providing amusement.

The newspapers splash recreational news. These papers provide new outlets in that field. Poems, topics of the day, theatre world and many other features provide joy to the people.

There are various periodicals i.e. weeklies, monthlies, etc. that splash such news and thus these papers serve the entertainment world in one way or the other. Cartoons, satires and jokes are splashed to delight the readers.

The newspapers also splash advertisements. Thus they boost business prospects of various concerns. Most of the revenue of the newspapers comes through such advertisements and these newspapers add to our knowledge and information and provide employment to thousands of workers. Furthermore, advertisements with regard to employment opportunities, marriages etc. are splashed through the papers. Hence many people find suitable matches and get employment in this way.

The newspapers form a vital link between the people and the government. No government can run successfully without the help of the people. The newspapers provide this vital link. The government receives the support of the people and the people represent their grievances through the newspapers. Thus the newspapers are very important from this point of view.

The newspapers play a yeoman’s role in mobilizing public opinion. They mirror the public opinion of the day and provide suggestion for resolution of various social and economic problems of the country.

Let us have a glance at the role of the newspapers in the modern world. The revolution in former Soviet Union owes a lot to the newspapers. No movement can succeed that doesn’t have a support of the newspapers. Newspapers represent various shades of the public opinion including that of the clarification from the government. This is the reason why no government can ignore their opinion and suggestion.

Newspapers have become a profitable industry in modern India. We find newspapers of all the main languages including English in the country. Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, and Malayalam newspapers are read in the specific regions of the country.

A free Press can serve a nation well. Press must be strictly impartial and it should not present views of a biased pattern. A responsible Press can serve the nation well and therefore such a press is the crying need of the hour. In India there are now independent news-agencies. They function without any sort of interference from the side of the government.

In every democracy the people and the government need the co-operation of each other. A free nation must have a free Press.

The newspapers are a source of information to the public. Therefore, there should be no censorship on the Press at all. If the Press becomes a tool in the hands of government, then there is no way out for the nation and it cannot survive at all. In Germany, the Press became a tool in the hands of the government. Therefore, the freedom of the nation came to an end and the Nazi regime had its sway.

Therefore, it is necessary for every democracy to give entire freedom to the Press. The Press can serve a nation well when it is free from all pressure.
