In today’s age of communication revolution, the media industry is growing by leaps and bounds. This high-end growth also gets reflected in the issues that are ‘chosen’ for media coverage and the way in which this happens. The growing urban-rural divide is evident in media reporting. Even at the urban level, most often, issues that affect the lowest common denominator in society are ignored. Power equations and commercial interests have taken over the commitment of the media. In the rural scenario, poverty and illiteracy dominate the media Ideally, Rural and development journalism should help to create awareness about problems plaguing the society. Equally diligent efforts need to be made to publicise developmental work, so that others may know about it and in the best case scenario, draw inspiration from it.
