Social Media is effecting human life in many aspects like health,family relations, etc. So,I'll be discussing each aspect in detail below. Firstly, I would like to describe or define what is a social media,many of them may be know that,but I would just like to mention that. WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA? Social Media is a platform,computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas,thoughts and information through the building of virtual networks and communities.  Social media originated as a way to interact with friends and family but was later adopted by businesses that wanted to take advantage of a popular new communication method to reach out to customers.

Responsibility of Media in Democracy

Media refers to the communication tools or channels through which news, music, movies, education, promotional messages, and other information is disseminated. It includes mediums like radio, television, magazines, newspapers, internet, etc. It describes the different ways in which we communicate in the society ranging from a telephone call to the news on television. The term media is used to denote a medium that is designed to reach out to a large audience such as the population of a country.

For instance, in the present times of the pandemic, media is constantly updating us about the scenario of the country as well as of the world regarding the number of active cases, the policies that government has adopted, etc. Along with the news of the pandemic, the media is also regularly updating about the other things happening in the country.

Media plays an important role to inform the public about the social, economic, and political activities happening in the world. It shows the ground reality of the society and portrays what the truth is. Media is the 4th pillar of democracy and plays a vital role in generating a democratic culture that is beyond the politics and helps increase the public consciousness. They are known as the watchdogs of the democracy as they supply the information about various candidates standing for the elections so that the people can choose their representative on those bases.

ROLE OF MEDIA IN DEMOCRACY

The Indian Constitution guarantees the fundamental right of ‘Freedom of Speech and Expression’ to every citizen, which includes ‘Freedom of Press’. For a democracy to function properly, the government and the citizens need to go hand in hand and for this purpose, media works to bridge the gap between them. The judiciary has protected the rights of the media as well as constrained it in the interest of justice as well as the fundamental rights of the others. Media exposes loopholes in the democratic society which helps the government to fill those vacuums and make the system more responsive, accountable and democratic friendly. Media has also helped to shape the democratic society by emphasizing issues such as child birth and care, domestic violence, and sexual harassment, which would have been private. It also helps in molding the public opinion and bringing social change in the society by highlighting issues such corruption in the government or the non functioning of the government. It is also a means for educating people, especially those in the rural areas, by circulating information without any bias.

RESPONSIBILITY OF THE MEDIA

  1. The media has the power to reach the government and expose their real picture to the world so that transparency can be maintained in the government.
  2. A challenging role for the media is to reveal any piece of information or truth to the public in such a way that no particular group of people are agitated from it.
  3. It also has the responsibility to help the citizens nourish and enjoy their rights and also to check that they exercise those rights in a lawful manner.
  4. Media can organise debates to challenge the loopholes in the functioning of the government and also appreciating the good work of the government.
  5. They can also build a sense of patriotism in the citizens who without the fear of any politician can work for the betterment of the nation.
  6. Media should never present any information by deliberately twisting it to create a hype in the people.
  7. It should also not get involved in creating fake news, or promoting a party or a brand just for the sake of money.
  8. Presenting real and important issues should be the main motive of the media, rather than indulging in presenting issues that are of no importance to the general public.

Doctrine of Notional Extension under the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty. The problem arises when these elements do not coincide together. But a workmen if injured just near the work premises or just before joining the work or in the way to work problem arises. To address this kind of problem and giving some kind of relief to the workmen the theory of notional extension evolved. “As a rule, the employment of a workman does not commence until he has reached the place of employment and does not continue when he has left the place of employment, the journey to and from the place of employment being excluded. It is now well-settled, however, that this is subject to the theory of notional extension of the employer’s premises so as to include an area which the workman passes and repasses in going to and in leaving the actual place of work. There may be some reasonable extension in bot

Peace - A Way Of Life

To be peaceful is the sign of a conqueror.  We have often heard people saying 'follow the path of peace and you will be happy', 'preach peace' and many other phrases emphasising on a way of living- Peace. But what is it really about?  With reference of the holy Bible, peace is defined with notions like  totality or completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, security and well being.  The definition of peace changes with mindsets of people. For one, it is a sense of accomplishment, non- violence for another, salvation to a few and a lot more to others. But what peace exactly is? And how can we attain it? Peace is acceptance. A vision of seeing things and extracting optimism out of it. Peace makes life easier. To be satisfied is what peace is. To be able to look back at your life and accept all its darks and jewels is what peace feels like. Peace is a state of mind where your soul feels calm, free from the dirt of hatred, negativity, criticism, inferiority and
