Aligarh, October 30: The Cultural Education Centre (CEC), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has long wooed eminent visitors for interesting discussions, seminars and symposiums. Mr Krishna Kant (Senior correspondent, The Wire) and Ms Aliza Bakht, freelance journalist mesmerised the audience with their remarkable insight, excellent content and side-splitting humour with a brainstorming session on ?Art of Storytelling? in the latest of CEC?s programmes.
Students from various streams attended the session at the CEC Smart-Classroom in which Mr Kant and Ms Bhakt discussed how journalism is leading to changes and developments and why it is crucial for journalists to ensure that they do not shirk their responsibility to their readers and viewers and keep reporting stories that serve the public interest.
?A journalist, true by nature cannot indulge in writing fake stories,? said Mr Kant highlighting the impact of media. He added that the journalists must guard against attempts at self-censorship and speak up about the dangers to the free press.
Meanwhile, Ms Bakht discussed her experiences of working as a journalist in difficult situations. ?It is not easy to cope up with the daily stresses while working as a journalist, but we stand resolute,? she said.
Ms Tarushika Sarvesh (Assistant Professor, Centre for Women?s Studies) proposed the vote of thanks after the question and answers session.
