A Media Person Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar
If you were to listen to the introspective soliloquy of an honest media person, what would you find? â€œThe media is supposed to be not merely factual but it has to be realistic. Reality is that which transcends what merely happens or merely appears. Reality is the direction of future events. Realistic means; having the vision of this blossoming future amidst what is apparent, confusing, depressing or maddening! Media has to express explicitly and convincingly; itâ€™s profound and clear vision of this blossoming of the billions and realization of their sublime aspirations all around the world. I am aware of this. But it is not easy to do what you want to do. You are usually dragged by your instincts, passions,
temptations, vested interests, pressures and so on. We media persons are most likely to get enamored by the glamour and glitter to which we are always exposed and therefore are likely to get mislead by it! In turn we are likely to mislead the others! We media people are also exposed to and are likely to be affected by the daily petty politics of power and its frenzy. In fact we media people seem to be caught in the unending pressures of the glamour, glitter, petty politics; of opportunism and power, nuisance value, cynicism, personal temptations and so on. We seem to lose the vision of blossoming of our own and that of the mankind, in the course of our job! We seem to get degenerated in that sense!
But it is important to note that everyone including us, the media people who are shrouded by the forces of degeneration; have a definite and realistic hope! This realistic hope comes from NAMASMARAN, which is remembering your true self. NAMASMARAN can protect us; the media persons just as everyone else; from the disturbing and stupefying illusions and delusions created by rapidly changing environment inside and outside!
