Deciphering the language of television

October 8, 2011, saw the unveiling of the book titled ‘Television Ki Bhasha’ (Language of Television) by no less than eight leading editors of the country. The book has been written by Harish Chandra Barnwal, senior journalist and Executive Producer at IBN7.

Chief guest at the book launch function was Rajiv Shukla, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs. Also present on the occasion were IBN Network Editor-in-Chief Rajdeep Sardesai; Qamar Wahid Naqvi, News Director, Aaj Tak; Vinod Kapdi, Managing Editor, India TV; IBN7 Managing Editor Ashutosh; Satish K Singh, Editor, Zee News; Ajit Anjum, Managing Editor News24, Shravan Garg, Group Editor, Dainik Bhaskar; and Chandan Mitra, Editor and Managing Director, Pioneer. The leading editors also expressed their views on Barnwal’s book.

Speaking at the launch, Rajiv Shukla said that this book would benefit journalism students and professional journalists alike. He added that while the number of media institutes across the country had gone up, not enough good books on media were available. He felt that Barnwal’s book would help bridge this gap.

Rajdesai added here that this book had helped him improve his Hindi as he wasn’t too proficient in the language. Praising the book, Aaj Tak’s Naqvi said that it was an honest attempt by Barnwal and added that it would help all media professionals.
