Hindi Journalism Day 2024: Media is the fourth pillar of democracy and journalism ensures that we are well informed about the current happenings of the state. Journalists work day and night to ensure that we get the news of everything happening as soon as possible, at our doorstep. A newspaper, a TV channel and in the present times, social media, hold the power to make or change an opinion. Journalism is extremely powerful and helps us to grow our perspective on certain things. Hindi journalism or vernacular journalism has enabled people to know about current affairs in the language they are comfortable in. This has led to dissemination of information at every doorstep of the country.
