Today, there is no dearth of newspaper and magazines in the market still we are coming to you with Poorva Star, a fortnightly magazine with the determination and forte, “We know the value of truth.” So the well deserved question is inevitable-WHY? To answer this question we would like to say, politics and media are the two major sources of mass dialogue among the citizens of any a democratic setup.
During the freedom movement both the pillars of democracy made supreme sacrifice while working under the mission of freedom. This situation more or less prevailed till 1985. Through this mission media successfully fought the government censorship and tackled Jagganath Mishra’s Press Bill. However, in later days, the reliability of media and politics was marred by the commercialization. We were not even able to protect the status of Fourth Estate of democracy with all morality and ethics. Today, we have reached the level where the image of media has become so murkier, this is the same dark side of media which was being exposed from the field of politics and administration. Nowadays, we are getting the news of media persons being arrested and being jailed with the charges of alleged corruption.
In addition to this, due to cut throat competition and commercialization media started losing its National Identity and started adopting regional face. This created iron curtain for regional news and reader from one region do not have access towards the news of another region. This has fatal impact on the national unity and nationalistic feeling.
In such situation, the publication of Poorva Star is a small effort which in the direction of Nationalistic & positive feeling which will set aside the existing evils of media. We are fully aware that media is suffering from the syndrome of bloating its own trumpet and liaisoning and we may have to pay a price for that.
Still, we are ready to pay that price and we are com0ing to you with the determination of building and developing the integrity and overall development. This is the reason we have adopted the ‘tagline’, “We Know the Value of Truth.” For this, we need the support of your love, goodwill and co-operation.
