Journalism and mass communication is an essential dimension of modern society. In today's difficult times when human civilization is facing an epidemic like Corona, media is playing many roles in society. On the one hand, through mass communication and journalism, information is being received from all over the world; on the other hand, the distances are also reduced through the medium of mass communication. Also, today when we are imprisoned inside homes, there is no shortage of entertainment through mass communication. In today's time, 'Sambhavna' webinar was organized by the Journalism and Mass Communication Department of Rabindranath Tagore University (RNTU), keeping in mind the imperative of mass communication and the eagerness of youth towards it. 'Sambhavna' is a series of webinars envisaged by the department where many experts related to the subject will discuss career possibilities in various genres of mass communication. The webinar was organized by the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication of Tagore University, along with the Faculty of Humanities and Liberal Arts and the Department of Training and Placement, whose first episode included M Poornima as the keynote speaker to talk on 'Journalism'. Poornima is the media advisor for NGO Child Rights and You (CRY).
