Transformation – Role of Media” organized by the Media Wing of Brahma Kumaris Organisation’s Rajyoga

Prof. Acharyulu said that inspite of modern day media’s deliberate tilt towards sensational, titillating and negative
news, dedicated columns, audio visual space and time slots are increasingly being ear-marked for target audience
by even mainstream print and electronic media of different kinds and categories.
He further said that while Pulitzer Award Winning Photo of a naked and semi-naked children running away from
bombardment could change Nixon’s mind to stop Vietnam war in 1972, another Pulitzer Award winning photo of
a girl child scrambling for food (near a Refugee camp in a drug addict Sudan) and a vulture in waiting for eating the girl child depicted the pathetic picture of tussel between human values and media professional values.
He said that at this juncture conflicts of values and interest, what comes to our rescue are innate wisdom in action
that are righteousness, good conduct, honesty and integrity of character especially in life and profession of
journalists through regular practice and promotion of spiritual values, Rajyoga meditation, simple and healthy
lifestyle. Blessing the inaugural session with her words of wisdom of Rajyogini Dadi Ratan Mohini, Jt. Chief of

practice of divine meditation; Prof. Sanjeev Bhanavat, H.O.D., Mass Communication, Rajasthan University called

, cultural and linguist challenges posed by modern corporate media.
Chairman, Media Wing & Multi-media, Chief of Brahma Kumaris, Rajyogi B.K. Karuna in his welcome address
earlier urged media not to become subservient by external forces of worldly powers and privileges, but to be
solely guided by their inner instincts, intuition and conscience with the help of Brahmakumaris’ teachings on
