Being one of the few advanced countries in the fields of satellite communication and media, India has achieved tremendous progress in the field of information, thereby earning global appreciation.
The opportunity for journalists is endless and, at the same time, the job has become more challenging as the new world is flooded with a wide array of media tools coupled with enormous penetrative powers. Journalists specialise in diverse areas, such as politics, finance and economics, investigation, culture and sports for newspapers and periodicals.
