Thusthe only way of functioning orderly is to maintain a clear balance between the two pillars of democracywhich its people trust the most Ladies and Gentlemento a large extentyesterdays journalism is todays history Just sotodays journalism will be the dominant part of tomorrows history Thus you journalists owe a larger responsibility and accountability not only to the present generation but the future as well Journalism is the principal means of making the picture of the world in any citizens head something more than a caricature of the real thing Thus journalism is a great powerwhich plays a major part What has been said about the press is applicable to all modes of journalism The impact of journalism is so extensive that it plays a central role in the process of nation-building It is true that initially journalists largely confined themselves to expressing opinionsbut soon turned to reporting the newson which opinion is basedin a manner that was fair and impartial Journalists who have the power to mould public opinion and motivate society should be pioneers of change and development Thereforejournalists should be conscious to see that journalism does not become a destructive force I strongly suspect that the negative impact of news coverage in the past decade has done a great deal to build the mood of despair and helplessness that exists among too many people Always rememberyou form peoples interest You frame the mind of the people Thereforea free press is as important as a responsible press too It is the power to make the fresh winds of truth blow through your minds It is in this that reporting has its greatness Ladies and Gentlemenjournalists must be at the forefront in informing and educating the people on major socio-culturalpolitical and economic issues and developments so that they can make informed choices and decisions Justice Venkataramaiahin one of the early judgments on freedom of expressionpointed out four social purposes to serve while exercising the freedom of the press: onehelp an individual to attain self-fulfillment; twoassist in the discovery of truth; threestrengthen the capacity of an individual in participating in decision-making; and fourprovide a mechanism by which it would be possible to maintain a reasonable balance between society and social change All members of society should be able to form their own belief and communicate freely to others In sumthe fundamental principle involved here is the right to know Journalists must be guided by the above four purposes to be served every time they exercise their freedom of press I studied in a Tamil-medium school; newspapers were the only tutor I could afford in those days for improving my English Im truly indebted to the press for whatever little English I can speak today Soyou have a great power at your disposal that can change politicseducate the massescreate awareness and alter anything and everythingwhich you desire This power is bestowed

cultures and a shining example of unity in diversity So is reflected in the press and media It is true that media is the mirror of society and reflects the contemporary needs and aspirations But equallyit is also a trendsetter and has its own impact on all the above Recognising its pivotal roleyou must always be mindful of every act you commit Journalists freedom is the heart of the freedom of the press and the exercise of this freedom depends largely on the editor I would like to remind you that having the enormous power in your handsyou could illuminate the future of not only your own country but that of the whole world The press in India is fast-growing ahead of its counterparts in several Western and developed countries Here comes the responsibility on the shoulders of journalists to ensure that while marching on the road to growthit preserves its values and heritage that have given our country a unique place in the world As per the World Press Trends released in 2011 by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA)of the 10 highest circulation newspapers in the worldfive are from Japantwo from Indiaand one each from ChinaGermany and the United Kingdom I hope and look forward to the day when our country takes a prominent position in the world of journalism I also take this opportunity to thank the journalists’ fraternity in India for the positive role you continue to play in societyespecially in promoting and defending the ideals of freedom and just governance I have no doubt that media has a multidimensional role to play in the promotion of societys values and virtues as well as in the dispensation of justice Howeverwith the advent of 24-hour satellite news channelsthe internet and blogsetcthe task before todays media persons is more demanding Never allow the market forces to determine the news Rememberjournalisms first obligation is to the truth and its first loyalty is to the citizens These awards celebrate the

delivering her statement at the plenary Session of WTO’s 10th Ministerial Conference in Nairobi (Source: PTI) Top News The Tenth WTO Ministerial Conference which concluded in Nairobi on Friday has been congratulated by the organisation that represents 162 member nations for securing a “historic agreement” on several trade initiatives and commitments The rich countries view it as a breakthrough after 15 years of the Doha round with six ministerial-level decisions on agriculture cotton and other issues including a commitment to abolish export subsidies for farm exports public stockholding for food security purposes a special safeguard mechanism for developing countries measures related to cotton and preferential treatment for least developed countries in the area of services For India which has held out on the reaffirmation of the declaration and decisions adopted at the Doha meeting in 2001 the outcome may well be disappointing as reflected in Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s comments in the aftermath At stake was the right to provide subsidies to farmers in a country where 85 per cent of farmers have holdings of less than five acres and that too given the backdrop of rural distress after successive years of drought At the Nairobi conference members of developed countries have committed to removing export subsidies immediately except for a handful of agricultural products while developing countries will do it by 2018 with flexibility to cover marketing and transport costs for agriculture exports until the end of 2023 These relate to livelihood issues in an economy like India even as some of the experiments with the Direct Benefits Transfer scheme as in Uttar Pradesh show that it can gradually eliminate inefficiencies Indeed it would be desirable to hasten the speed of this change but questions of political feasibility will also have to be taken into account Equally important or more so from the country’s viewpoint was the issue of a special safeguard mechanism or SSM that allows India to raise tariffs to protect the interests of local farmers against surges in imports The ministerial decision on SSM for developing countries recognises that they will have the right to temporarily increase tariffs in the face of import surges while committing members to engage constructively in finding a permanent solution on public stockholding for food security That should offer comfort given that food security is an article of faith for the Indian polity The perceived setbacks apart India has stakes in a multilateral trading
