P Sainath on media

2008, 10mins 05s

This talk with P Sainath is good to recollect in light of the current Katju vs. Media debates.

Palagummi Sainath (1957-), the 2007 winner of the Ramon Magsaysay award for journalism, literature, and creative communications arts, is an award winning Indian development journalist – a term he himself avoids, instead preferring to call himself a ‘rural reporter’ or simply ‘reporter’ – and photojournalist focusing on social problems, rural affairs, poverty and the aftermaths of Globalization in India. This talk with him is directed by the Shillong Workshop, edited by Deepa Bhatia and Amit Patel, and produced by Neelima Mathur, Pramod Mathur and Iikka Vehkalahti.
