He introduced students to journalism covering various aspects of print, broadcast and web media and said “We call media as the fourth pillar of our democracy. One cannot neglect the role of media in strengthening our democratic structure.” He also told students, “Command over local languages is an advantage for reporters. The habit of reading, learning new things and observation make the reporter perfect in the field. Good writing skill can be mastered by reviewing one’s writing, correcting mistakes. Nose for news is an important skill which every reporter needs to adopt to climb the ladder of success and fame. If a reporter strictly follows media ethics, automatically he becomes the voice of society. ”
