Media Mimansa offers rich contents on University Education

Media Mimansa (Volume II, Issue 1, July-September 2008)) of Bhopal-based Makhanlal Chaturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita Avam Sanchar Vishwavidyalay, deserves kudos for providing us a glimpse of the contemporary higher education scenario in India. The Editor and Vice Chancellor, Shri Achyutanand Mishra has taken pains to bring together veterans in academia to write about "University: Then and Now", the theme on which he had organised a seminar in Bhopal in June.
I am in a position to appreciate the efforts undertaken by him and his team because I have experienced in the recent past how difficult it is to involve so many scholars, from different parts of the country, for a seminar and later to bring out a comprehensive issue on the same theme. The editorial team has succeeded in bringing out the articles in Hindi and English, with a layout that is pleasing to the eye and easier to revert to specific topics that might be needed for reference later
The Media Mimansa is still in its infancy, yet it holds a promise for quality well-researched papers and articles of interest to academia in general, and communication educators in particular. I am confident about it because this issue has rich contents that enlighten the readers about the higher education in India, from 800 BC to the present era.
I do wish that the editorial team decides to put this and subsequent issues online so that anyone anywhere can access the journal anytime.

Price: Rs 30.
