Referring to the happiness that a poet attains from reciting poetry, he told that happiness can be attained only by working according to one's basic inclination. The happiness of a poet by his poetry and a painter by his painting is invaluable. Shri Chouhan said that the initiative to support students in choosing a career comes from the core of his heart. He wishes to see the youth move fast in the right direction. He said that meaningless education is a waste. The objective of education is to provide knowledge, culture and skill. Employment-oriented education is also must. Expressing happiness over the fact that 1 lakh 12 thousand 625 children have secured more than 70 percent marks by appearing in the Board of Secondary Education this year, Shri Chouhan said that until last year students securing more than 75 percent marks were being given benefits under Mukhya Mantri Medhavi Vidyarthi Protsahan Yojana. On the demand of children, this score limit has been reduced to 70 percent. He told that the state government is paying the fees of the bright students under the scheme. Last year the state government has paid the fees of more than 750 medical students. Up to Rs 40 lakh medical fees is being paid by the state government. He said that he will not allow the dreams of the children to shatter. For this schemes right from distribution of free books, uniforms, cycles to fee payment of higher education have been implemented.

As many as 60 thousand 592 students present at various places took part in the programme. Students asked direct questions to the Chief Minister. Shri Chouhan resolved their issues patiently. Instructions for full support to Kumari Aditi Thakur Class Xth pass Model School student Kumari Aditi Thakur told CM Shri Chouhan about the difficulties her family had to face after her father's death. The Chief Minister held a separate discussion with her and consoled her. He instructed officials to extend all possible assistance to Aditi. Yashasvini Bhabor of Jhabua district expressed the need for an e-library for preparation of competitive examinations. The Chief Minister told that a fully equipped library building is coming up soon in Jhabua. On information about lack of Engineering College building by Falguni Nahar of the district Shri Chouhan said that the building has been approved. Once it is built several of its branches will also become functional. Expressing his desire to take admission in J.N.U. Delhi University, Rohit Shrivastava of Bhind district enquired about information on the mode of fee payment. The Chief Minister informed him that state government will bear the fees of the education of children from families with annual income up to Rs 6 lakhs whether they get admission in J.N.U. or Delhi University. On student Lalit Patel's problem of distance between his residence and the college being too much, the Chief Minister said that there is arrangement of transport expense up to a fixed limit for students coming from villages to the city to study. Replying to student Mohan Soni's query on how the CM chose his career, the Chief Minister replied that he could not carry out dissection during his Biology class.

Only one who is sensitive towards others, is affected by others' pain and has the desire to remove people's difficulties can acquire success in politics. This sensitivity is the reason why Shri Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister from a chaiwala. He himself became the chief minister despite belonging to an ordinary family. Shri Chouhan also mentioned about his own struggle in political life. He removed the doubt expressed by student Sohan Singh of fee payment of B.C.A. course under Mukhya Mantri Medhavi Protsahan Yojana.

Educational Delivery: Changing Left, Right & Centre Prof Ujjwal K Chowdhury

Education technology and its delivery are going through a revolutionary change today. In the digital age, chalk and talk is history. On one hand, with depleting attention span of learners, new learning pedagogy is needed. And on the other, integrating digital tools into education, from school to University, is must.
Brick & Mortar:
This has been the usual learning in the classroom taught by teachers who speak the last word on the subject, coupled with learning in the library from hard copy books, and evaluating through examinations written in examination halls. And this one line has formed the core of brick and mortar education for decades now. Not that it has completely gone obsolete, but much has changed and shall change. We need teachers as role models and a human touch, for clarifications and for inspiration. A good teacher motivates a learner to be open to even tough subjects. Also brick and mortar gives us peers, brings in a sense of collaboration and teamwork, makes us more social, and gives our first circle of friends much of which remains till death.
Click & Portal:
The West first brought the concept of online learning. Entire courses came to be presented online through the blend of text, pdfs, audio (podcasts) and video, and finally blended where all of these are converged to make the learning experience diverse to the sense organs and pleasing to internalize. Indeed it has been a step forward and there emerged an entire range of edu- tech companies catering to this. New range of e-learning tools and resources, e-tutors, self-learning through Khan Academy videos for school education and Coursera videos and courses for higher education have now emerged. However, such an approach, when taken to its logical conclusion and in its entirety, makes education mechanical, bereft of role models, inspiration, peer group and teamwork. Many critics have noted that such an approach leads to geeks and robotic minds.
Experiential Learning:
Ancient Gurukul System in our civilization has eulogised learning by doing with a Guru in front as an inspiring role model and learners staying together in ashramas or Gurukuls for collective learning and a spirit of fraternal competition. Even in the post industrial world, many with basic education went directly into the factory system, into workshops and offices and picked up skills on the job, learning by doing. While experiential learning makes a strong case of hands-on ready-to- use skills being imparted only through this pedagogy, the major limitation of this is while it answers to 'How' questions of skills, it does not delve deep into 'Why' questions of any issue.
Experiential Brick & Portal Learning:
As we proceed into a Knowledge Economy, education is increasingly moving towards the right futuristic model in its delivery: Experiential Brick & Portal Learning (EBPL). Education to be diverse in scope, humane in approach, technical in skills, and internalized in its impact must combine the best elements of all the three noted above seamlessly and without mutual conflict. While classrooms bring in teachers and peers. No more is the 'teacher the ultimate interpreter of knowledge', 'but compassionate mentor who is the first stimulus for the learner'. The learner has to follow it up with self-learning, skills and applications on his own, particularly in the domain of higher education.
On Campus Practices:
A leading management college has started using whatsapp as a tool to enhance attendance. It makes 2 minutes video with a touch of humour and creativity on the major theme of the sessions and sends it to students a night before to enhance interest of the learners. Flip classroom methodology has been started by several management and engineering institutes where power-point presentation on the subject of discussion is given in advance along with online and offline reading resources. The class begins with a quiz to assess the level of information and understanding of the learners on the subject, then moves into clarifications and case-studies. Many universities have institutionalized a mixed evaluation process of integrating project work with online research and offline written examination. And this process is obviously a continuous evaluation. This is in sharp contrast to one-time year-end or twice a year written exams which determined grades and marks of learners for all their lives. EBPL is an imaginative way of engaged and empowered learning and multi- pronged evaluation to test all of these: comprehension, retention, imagination and application.
Finnish Innovation Labs in Education:
Education system of Finland is considered to be the finest in the world. In the Finnish Innovation Labs in education, specially at higher education level, there is no formal teaching, but a collective learning by doing where a theme is introduced, ground rules are set, the learners in groups explore it themselves through self-study, cases, survey or research on ground, and coming together and sharing results at every level, discarding those that do not stand strong. The entire edifice is founded on one core belief-learning by doing-that inherently values trust and responsibility. Further, the same belief-effective learning can happen when it is self-directed and self-regulated-got firmly imprinted in my mind. Learning rather than numerical outcome 'should become the key component. Hence, there are no marks, only grades; and rewards are more in the form of joy of discovery, bonding, and field-work.

Media at Crossroads: When Small is Big

The small handheld screen is taking the bigger tele-screen by the horns. From news to entertainment, short video to music video, the any-time consumption of video online is increasing fast, more so in times of low internet costs on handsets, in this post Jio era. Digital is being reborn in India almost every day with 845 million cell phone users, half of them being active on internet and social media with smart-phones, and 6 on 10 internet users being a regular daily user majority upto 7 hours a day. Transition to the digital world ahead will be more through Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality ad Virtual Reality, which will add visual and conceptual diversity. But this may also create stories and visuals which do not actually exist and pass them off as news. Therein lies the pitfall as well.
Revenue & Distribution Challenges:
News media is at crossroads on many counts. The basic problem facing the news media, specially the TV, today is the disproportionate expense on distribution and carriage fees of channels (which is approximately 45% of the consumer end revenue of the channels). Hence, there is decidedly low investment in content and the variety of the same. Almost all channels then resort to studio talks rather than much of field-work. Size of the television news business is around Rs.3000 crores, which is 5% of the gross 60,000 crores advertising revenue in India, and hence the frontiers are still open on revenue side. Even in digital news, profit sighting and traffic rise are rare and far in between, though has happened in some portals, like In spite of the news portals like and already earning profits, Indian consumer is still not ready for the subscription and Paywall route to revenue generation in digital news. The situation for general entertainment channels (GEC) is a tad better and the consumption of serials and reality shows is far more on TV than on the handset. But there is a perceptible change herein too. Snacking of small parts of reality shows on the digital medium is rampant now and often such short videos go viral. Also, appointment viewing of television programs is on decline as urban consumers specially need anytime viewing due to a hectic short-on- time lifestyle. Digital with its anytime viewing option is hence a major way forward, being aided with large and cheap datapacks on phones and home wifi.
TV Integration with the Digital Medium: has emerged to be the 20th largest news portal of the world and by far the largest of any TV news organization in India, with its Web First slogan and series of initiatives. Since online audience is not equal to broadcast audience, it is creating specific skills within its integrated newsroom. India Today takes it to Mobile First perspective where the content (pics, language and video) are even tailored to mobile medium sensitivity. Alongside, television and its digital avatars are both caught up in the debate between speed news (face focus) and enterprise content (full story with various perspectives). Original curated personalized content is must in the digital medium, and hence the adaptation of journalists to digital content generation techniques becomes crucial. Un-cynical and tech-savvy younger work-force is often more suited for this. Bias versus Neutrality: It is a good news that journalism in myriad forms is being consumed more and democracy is being served better with reach of news becoming stronger and wider, though in a clutter of news-platforms, credibility is going to be the discerning factor. The worrying factor at times is that by-lines are increasingly known less for the news they speak but for stands they take. There is the rise of branded anchors, living in their bubbles and echo-chambers, and TV often presents less news, and much more views. Sometimes the extreme stands of anchors are doing almost an irreparable damage to journalism, as seen in Kasganj case recently. Alternatively, social media, consumed much on smartphones, has created some pressures on TV to stand firm. Portals like altnews and boomchecker have created pressures on TV journalists to get their stories right. News anchors can have their biases in views, but post-truths or fake news cannot be presented as facts. The artificially created conflicts through studio guests and #journalism are signs of decay in healthy news presentation, though these serve the twin purposes of reducing costs and strengthening biases and stereotypes.
Media Self-correction:
Media mediates social change, and media self-corrects with time. People do go back to credible news. After the coming in Donald Trump to power in USA, New York Times and CNN have become more popular. Indian news media should be thinking about what they are doing to themselves for TRPs, viewership and being in the good books of powers that be. Often even TRPs do not reflect the reality on ground. Hence, social media again acts as a deterrent to the aberrations of the TV. A bigger challenge, while audiences are coming to TV for re-iteration or reaffirmation of their already existing world view, they take to digital media for breaking news. This will only grow further, but revenue is still abysmally low in the digital which is the cause of real worry. With higher revenues on the digital medium, there will be more corrections in the overall contours of news-dissemination in India.
NewsRoom 2020: Crystal-gazing:
The new definition of DTH is Direct to Handset. So mobile journalism (MOJO) and skills of MOJO journalists are the order of tomorrow. The future is of further integrated newsroom along with staff doubling up on TV and digital fronts, selfie-stick reporters shooting themselves and publishing simultaneously will be the new normal. In brief, multi-skilled convergent techno-savvy mobile journalists with a great network and way with languages shall be the most sought after animal in the world of news of tomorrow. Also, technology penetration will emerge as the game-changer ahead. Broadband penetration across 600 districts and gradually 6.3 lacs villages will make the medium influencing the message. Social media will fill in where the mainstream media fail and with broadband going to every corner this will be further accelerated. Also, Specialized Content, as in business or ecology or defence, for specific niche audiences will also find market and revenue talking to their right audiences. Indeed, journalists can take you to the spot of an event through VR and add layers to it through AR. Facts and fiction distinction may to an extent get obliterated. This is more so as video capable devices are on the rise, and are expected to grow more than twice between 2016 and 2020. Even today, daily online video watchers are 33% of the total internet users in India. And among these viewers, women outnumber men and Hindi outnumbers all other languages taken together. Come 2020: Content still remains the king, though contexts and platforms shall change.

The worst of times are the best for journalists : Dr. Ashish Joshi
Our Correspondent, 29 July. 2017
A series of orientation sessions have been lined up to mark the new academic session of Jagran lakecity University(JLU). School of Media & Communication conducted its orientation programme on 28/07/17, for the new students. Eminent media professional Dr. Ashish Joshi, Editor-in- chief and CEO Lok Sabha Television, Ms Aruna Raje patil, National Film Awardee and Renowned Filmmaker and Shri Vinay Singhal, Co-founder & CEO, WittyFeed has been roped to enlighten our students with his ideas, industry practices and experiences. The programme formally commenced by Saraswati Vandana followed by lamp lighting . Prof. Anoop Swaroop, Vice Chancellor JLU, motivated the new students by making them understand the importance of the role they play in society, he laid emphasis on penchant for the profession and perfection. Prof. Vivek Khare, Dean (Student Welfare), JLU briefed the students about the rules and regulations of the University and requested the students to abide by the institutional rules and norms. Prof. Diwakar Shukla, Director, School of Media & Communication emphasized a need to maintain balance between the profession and passion of journalism He advised students to discover their true self during these years of learning. He formally announced the commencement of BA (hon.) Advertising and PR. from this academic session. The worst of times are the best for journalists as they present a chance to do good journalism and re-establish the fundamental principles of news reporting, said Aashish Joshi, Editor-in- chief and CEO Lok Sabha Television. Giving few anecdotal references, he addressed that it was the best of times because technology is all pervasive and all inclusive. There is a rare interactivity and synergy and information is easily and abundantly available. He pointed out that there are so many platforms for journalists to put out their stories and for the stories to be picked up and delivered. Ashish said that it was called the worst of times because of what was called the 'post-truth' era. Fake news is being disseminated to distract and to be mischievous and is adding to the pressure on newsrooms which is leading them to bypass critical processes of verification, resulting in them making mistakes. Paradoxically, he said, that this presents a great opportunity to go back to the basic principles of journalism of establishing the truth and writing stories that were rooted in facts. He called upon the students to stay the course and remember that the best lies are closes to the truth and that they must follow the cardinal rules of journalism. The fundamental duty of a report is to the reader and therefore, young journalists must learn to challenge, interrogate and scrutinise all that comes their way. Ms. Aruna Raje Patil, a renowned Filmmaker makes a great point about filmmaking when she talks about how earning a degree can be a little deceptive because, well, a piece of paper doesn't make someone a filmmaker. She emphasized on the fact that students should not only learn technical side of filmmaking, but also start finding stories in the unsaid. She reckoned that the market is full of opportunities and avenues but, the only condition underlined is that "one should be really good with the skills". Vinay Singhal, Co-founder and CEO of WittyFeed motivated students to do entrepreneurship. He said, "I urged the students to understand the power of a phrase 'never give up'. If you don't give up, you will definitely make it someday. He in fluxed enthusiasm among the students by making the address entirely interactive where, some interesting dialogues happened between the speaker and the students. The anchoring of the orientation session was conducted by Ms.Shivani Thapliyal, Assistant Professor, SoMC. The session ended with vote of thanks by Dr.Jayanta panda, Associate Professor. SoMC, who extended gratitude to the management, dignitaries and various people who contributed to make the event a success.
