As the golden light of dawn pierces the pitch black darkness of the night and brings the whole world before us all its forms become sweet before our eyes so does the media bring the interior of the four walls of the house under the generous sky of the world like the voice of the world. It brings people confined to the confines of daily life to the open realm of world humanity and world citizenship. In today’s world, the media has become an essential element of daily life. But is this form of news media today in the past will it be the same in the future, is the past journalism and the present the same, will today’s Bangladesh see such a newspaper in the future? Will the newspaper printed in the paper of the next day exist at all, or will the newspaper become mobile and computer dependent, will the place of the newspaper printed in the paper be in a museum like the telegraph machine? Before looking for answers to these questions, one can look back at the past. Because, the future is formed on the basis of present and present by taking shelter of past.
Newspaper development is related to the invention of the printing press, but there is information that handwritten newspapers were in vogue in our country. It is undeniable that Gutenberg’s discoveries of the fifteenth century opened a new horizon in the field of information exchange, and that today’s era of press or laser printers has come at the hands of the printing press of that era. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that until the invention of the printing press, knowledge or information was limited, relying on handwritten books, manuscripts and manuscripts. The world of knowledge and learning was stuck in the hands of a few people. People were thirsty for news and the only way to know what was known at home and abroad was through folklore.
There was limited access to information between individuals and groups, there was no way to get information from a large number of people, and the biggest problem was that now the print media or newspapers give clear, accurate and consistent information and add photographs to prove it. He had a desperate lack of guarantees to break the conflict of the eyeballs. As a result, the events and rumors were combined by adding the color of imagination or the sweetness of the mind with the words heard by the people. The printed newspaper therefore plays a huge role in the field of objectivity and accuracy, so the news becomes an authentic record or documentary document of every event. It is not in the interest of the hegemonic individual group or party that it does not go astray – of course it does, but there is more opportunity to verify the printed information. Newspapers, on the other hand, are much more reliable today for the truth and information of the people – which is not possible with the help of sophisticated electronic media. And newspapers are not the only ones published in the country, innumerable magazines are published from different countries of the world.
Today’s media is the vigilant watchdog of democracy, in the court of the Supreme Court, he supports the oppressed people. Wherever human rights are violated, the dignity of democracy is violated or the sanctity of democracy is tarnished for any reason, the fearless voices of the media become louder. Therefore, the media today is always the guardian of the protection of the sacred democratic rights of the people, the court of the great man, the court of the people’s god, the formulation of any economic plan adopted for the public interest and its success or failure.
The present century is called the century of the Information Society. At the root of everything is going to the doorsteps of huge data sources and using the flow of information for the good of the world. The media and journalists of the future will have to check and sort the news keeping in view this. As digital technology develops pluralism, pluralism and information and rational thinking, integrates culture with education and builds a balanced, joyful thinking civilized human society around the world, make the world livable, and the media of the future to work towards that goal. Will. And in order to do that, we have to pay special attention to improving the quality of the news media, especially in publishing / disseminating objective reports. We need to be very careful in the coming days so that the opinions published / disseminated in the media are able to reflect the hopes and aspirations of the people. Catastrophe can occur due to non-publication / dissemination of objective reports. The war in Iraq was so big just to spread the word. Ordinary people take the information based story of the media as true. In many cases, news published / disseminated on the basis of untrue information can cause a catastrophe. Incidents like Nasirnagar in Brahmanbaria are proof of that.
We can now take advantage of information technology with both hands. As soon as you open the website, you can see a lot of information floating in the sky. We also want the ability to sort through that floating information, where we are very weak. Numerous young people are coming to journalism nowadays, but they are not talking about advice, encouragement, awareness or planned training to acquire professional skills and qualifications. They are found guilty, the method of rectification is not called. Today’s journalists have to take the responsibility of preparing the journalists of tomorrow. Interested young people do not have to hand over an ID card. Appropriate training and remuneration must be guaranteed. Otherwise future journalism may go astray. Finally, the editor of ‘Dhumketu’ is a rebellious poet, I will say based on the words of our national poet, so that the journalists of the future do not get tired of war, can fight, Bangladesh becomes an ideal place for journalists with free thinking and planned thinking. According to the aspiration of the teenage poet Sukant, “Let the world be livable for the child born tonight.”
