The purpose of mass communication is to educate, inform and enlighten the common man. This is easily achieved today through various media like newspapers, magazines, television, radio, cinema etc. The media is as important as food to an average individual’s life these days.

The media is becoming increasingly detachable to people’s lives with technology playing its part in tremendous growth, creativeness, innovativeness, vision and overall improvement of this sector. A major reason for this is the fact that the news today is a representative of the common man’s problems and his/her day to day challenges.

The western Indian state of Maharashtra is flooded with large number of supreme quality institutes and colleges pertaining to this field. Due to the prevalence of Mumbai- which is an entertainment hub, Maharashtra is home to a number of big media companies and organisations.

The media is constantly coming up with ways to cover events and news related to not just entities like the Government, industries, celebrities and the likes but also those related to social issues, sports, music, cinema and other types of entertainment. As a matter of fact, the media has evolved into a platform for people to make their grievances public and demand justice.

Varying genres are consistently being explored by the media of different countries, India being one of them. The media makes a great impact on the minds of young and old Indians and inspires them in various ways. For instance, advertising which is also a essential means of communication today, constantly educates people about what to purchase, how exactly to spend their hard earned money and enlighten them about various other grave issues.
