Science in Indian Media


About the Book
“Communicating science to the masses through various media is a much neglected field in India despite the fact that it is becoming a part of every walk of life. No wonder that science communication lacks the necessary infrastructure and manpower in the country. What has to be done to increase the quantum of science in the media? This book, based on an all India study and survey, is an attempt to answer this question. Changes are required at various levels, such as, content, finance, policy, infrastructure, etc. Much attention has particularly to be paid to the creation of the necessary manpower to communicate science to the masses living in not only urban but also rural areas.
The book gives an overview of the present status and future potential of science communication in the country by giving on the spot interviews with renowned science communicators; including Indian Kalinga Prize winners, media persons, public relations officers and scientists, a blueprint for more science in the media, recommendations for the future and various related studies. A handy guide to anybody interested in science communication and media in any developing country.”
