The Indian Media: Illusion, Delusion and Reality looks at half a century of Indian media and its evolution and how it has dealt with the critical issues facing all of us, from secularism to development, from defense and foreign affairs to human rights and the position of women. This collection of essays comprises the considered views of individual authors, many from within the profession, of how the media has opted to deal with and in some cases, willfully shut out - issues and sectors within Indian society today. Does the media reflect awareness of the divide between India and 'Bharat' and how pro - active is it? How far has substance yielded to style? What are the implications of ownership conglomerates, of the advent of TV, of the rise of regional media? All these, amongst other questions, are discussed.
