This is a mail that i recieved from a student friend of mine who is interning right now in a renowned television news channel.
well teacher, as i said you on phone that now i’m inside media industry quite unfittingly and learning all the ins and out of this organisation. i stand here like a spectator rather a professional learner watching the functioning of this new organisation. we would learn in books that journalism has been weighed down by sensationalism but i had never understood the meaning before. since now i got this chance to assist the salesman to sell his product in this new DUKAAN( read bureau office) of media industry, i began to understand the meaning of business. the news has become product and the delivery should be done at time to the Whole sale market. the market has its right whether to submit it before consumer or restrict it for further processing. the retailer offices(bureau office) in every city send their product after processing(editing) to whole sale market. retailer are paid for the product(stories) being sold to consumer. metropol has big share in this market as they have bigger consumer . but small town are also cashing in by providing snacks. right now i’m just a new kid for this new economy where these business tycoons think that the kid has no sense for their processed product(news) so let him learn. and i’m learning…….
so in that way our institute has a faulty syllabus we should be taught more industry related things than inviting intellectual and talking some alien things with students….
I havent given a reply to the mail as yet.
