About the Conference
Every problem in the world has a definite solution. There can be no smoke without fire. Similarly, there can be no problem without a corresponding solution to it.
Every problem has its own solution hidden in it. What is needed is our solution-minded attitude and approach to find it. Solution centric mindset is the need of the hour too. It is key to awaken and sustain our determination, focus and motivation to face, fight and finish problems and challenges in life. Solution-based intent, intuition and insights are essential for all people and professionals in today’s problem-ridden society. It is all the more essential, especially for persons in the media profession.
Because such positive, proactive and optimistic attitudes and actions are the indispensable impetus and important tools which are supposed to be present in mass media professionals today, for troubleshooting in the larger public interest. And also because today’s conflicts ridden democratic society reposes high hope and trust in the Press for truthful dissemination, deep delineation, unbiased reporting and early solution of people’s day to day problems.
Since its inception, the very purpose of journalism and mass communication has been to serve people, uncover the real reason for various problems and suggest sustainable solutions to existing and emerging socio-economic, political, cultural, religious, moral, ethical and geophysical barriers and challenges.
Mass media is supposed not merely to constantly question and highlight the contentious issues, alleged lapses, malpractices, misconducts or constitutional transgressions. They are also expected to come out with creative ideas and constructive suggestions for the resolution of the vexed contentions and basic problems affecting people, society and the whole universe.
True, journalists are not social activists or reformers. But as concerned citizens and responsible watch groups of civil society, they can’t afford to stand as mute spectators in the name of media neutrality.
They need to play the pivotal role of media catalysts by continued reporting and exposing the violations of democratic values, constitutional norms, social harmony, public good, human rights and duties, till their solutions are reached.
To discuss and delineate these core issues concerning today’s media and its challenging work environment, the Media Wing of Brahma Kumaris organization is holding and hosting a National Conference on “Solution Based Media Towards Prosperous Bharat”, at its Shantivan Campus, Abu Road, Rajasthan from 29 August to 2 September 2022.
This Conference constitutes part of the organisation’s year-long All India Campaign on the said theme. This Media Campaign was launched from Brahma Kumaris HQ, Abu in January 2022, as a part of the organisation’s celebration of Desh Ki Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. This Media Campaign / Conference is also being held under the organisation’s Canopy Theme: “Spiritual Empowerment for Kindness & Compassion” for the Year 2022-23.
Over 1500 media professionals representing different media segments, i.e., print, electronic, film, promotional & social media from all over India will be participating in the Conference.
The Conference is being held in a clean, serene, eco-friendly and peaceful environment of the Brahma Kumaris’ Shantivan Campus, Abu Road, situated at the serene foot-hills of Mount Abu in the Aravali Range of Mountains. It is well equipped with auditoriums along with comfortable lodging, boarding, transport and medical facilities.
