Time to cure the ‘Intellectual Cancer : J Nandakumar

Journalism was considered a noble service during the freedom struggle. But, now it has nosedived as mere a business activity. The readers’ right to hear the truth is negated and media turns intellectual cancer, which does nothing else but misguiding the people. The realm of media is under the grip of commercialisation hence infested by intellectual cancer. The names of some senior media people have come out in connection with the AugustaWestland Helicopter deal and the 2G scams,” said RSS Akhil Bharatiya Sah Prachar Pramukh Shri J Nandakumar while speaking at the Narad Jayanti function organised in Kochi on May 25.

Shri Nandakumar said we come across tendencies to replace good thoughts with absurd and substandard ones. Some people eulogise Mahishasura and project Durga as prostitute. Same sort of people ridicule Narada, the treasure of all knowledge and know-how. They visualise Narad as an obnoxious buffoon.  A book Dr. Ambedkar – Samoohya Viplavayathra, authored by the late Dattopant Thengadi, founder of BMS, was also released on the occasion. Veteran journalist and editor of Janmabhoomi Malayalam daily Leela Menon was felicitated. Shri MV Benny, former general secretary of Samastha Kerala Sahitya Parishad presided over the function. Senior journalist P Rajan and Justice PS Gopinathan (Retd judge of Kerala High Court) also spoke on the occasion.
