Noida: An incredible, renowned and important National Award after the name of father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi was constituted by the Asian Education Group in association with International Journalism Centre and International Chamber of Media and Entertainment Industry.
“At no other time any honour has been comprised for Journalism after the name of Mahatma Gandhi. The thought behind this honour is to felicitate each one of those individuals who have invested a long time in the field of news coverage and their work merits citing for the research and education”, said Dr. Sandeep Marwah (President of the award committee).
Aside from being a national leader and social reformer, Gandhi was an extraordinary communicator. More than any other individual, he perceived that correspondence is the best device to shape opinion and assemble public support.
Gandhi, in a journalistic vocation spreading over about four decades, edited six journals. In 1933 Gandhi began Harijan, Harijanbandhu, Harijansevak in English, Gujarati and Hindi, respectively. These papers were the vehicles of his campaign against untouchability and poverty in rural zones. These papers published no advertisements and still gained wide circulation.
