International Conference on Diversity & Plurality in Media- Reflections of Society in Bhopal

Makhanlal. Chaturvedi National, University of Journalism and Communication, has organised an International Conference on Diversity & Plurality in Media- Reflections of Society, On December 26-27th  2011 in Bhopal.
The foundation of ancient Bhartiya (Indian) civilization is based upon the eternal concept of unity in diversity. To be diverse is the law of nature but there is an element of commonality in every creation. Integral Humanism is a social philosophy that explains the intricacies of human relationship within and outside world. Communication as an essentiality of human behavior and media as its extension has to be diverse in nature and scope.
But the organized media is structured in such a manner that it is conditioned to ignore the spectrum of the diversity and project certain activities, events, thoughts and ideologies more than the other . This does it have the capacity to be objective. Do we live with these aberrations? Or else scholars and media persons should look for alternate structural option?
Conference plans to address the issues related to Diversity and Plurality from an Asian Perspective.
