Press is more than a media of information. The news may be coloured with views and the comments upon the news generally would challenge our options. That is why press plays an important role in democratic country. It can make or break the governments. It can calm down the people or play up their passions, it can help the party in power to strengthen its Position or make the opposition to get the upper hand. Press not only leaves its impact on political life but also affects our social and economic life. It can help in tracing out the criminals. It can give expression to the grievance of the people and it can help the people to attain heir ends. 

In a democratic society the main task of the pool is to watch the democratic character of the political organization. There are many dangers to thedemocratic set up. The people in power try to encroach upon the rights of the common man. The people may not be able to enjoy their rights because of the interference of some. The press puts a check upon these types of tendencies by pin pointing the lapses of the party in power. The press can change the opinions of the people and the party becomes unpopular.

Short Essay on the “Role of Media” in Our Daily Lifeby Aliva ManjariToday our life is full of mass media. Our day begins with a newspaper delivered to us with our morning cup of tea. Some of us switch on to radio or TV while getting ready for the day and try to absorb the latest developments since the newspaper went to bed (sent for printing) last night.Both on radio and TV advertisements are sandwiched between news items and songs as the case may be. These advertisements try to influence our minds about what we should eat, drink, wear or buy in general.They even caution us against diseases like AIDS, remind us about polio drops, inform us about forthcoming films and motivate our thinking in a subtle manner. Before leaving home for the day some of us check and reply our e-mails like we used to see our mail boxes.Some of us even log on to our favorite sites for news and information. After getting ready the moment we hit the road we are bombarded by hoardings, banners, stickers, and bill boards cajoling and coaxing us to do this and not to do that.Those of us who travel by car immediately tune in to the FM and get a fresh dose of information education and entertainment. In our college or workplace we are fed lot more information through books, CDs, notes and lectures. After the class or office we may decide to go for a film and get into a make believe world around us. A running TV channel greets us on returning home and we are so tired that we just collapse into a sofa or bed to see whatever is being shown.If we don’t like one channel we surf and see another. Before going to bed we once again visit a website or chat on the ICQ with a friend. This is how press or media is controlling our life and mind.
