Manipal: Dr Subhash Chandra interacts with TAPMI Students on ‘Has the news media lost its credibility?’ and ‘Gratitude’

Manipal: Dr Subhash Chandra, Chairman, Essel Group and ZEE, Monday addressed the students of T A Pai Management University (TAPMI), Manipal for the next episodes of India’s popular youth show – Dr Subhash Chandra (DSC) Show. The DSC Show has successfully completed over 40 episodes travelling to various cities across India, including Mumbai, New Delhi, Noida, Kolkata, Jaipur, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Ghaziabad, Pune, Jalandhar, Chandigarh and now Manipal.


Speaking on the topic ‘Has media lost its credibility?’, Dr Chandra stated, “News media is a tool which in a large democracy like ours creates public opinion so that the other pillars of the society like the executive, the legislature, the judiciary and even business, do not use the democracy for their own gains. Today, so much information is available on the internet which helps people to decipher the difference between right and wrong. Social media is keeping the mass media in check and helping the news media to stay honest.”


Interacting with the students on the topic of ‘Gratitude’, Dr Chandra emphasized, “The expression of gratitude to the environment makes life beautiful. When we do good work, we like our reflection in the mirror in the morning. This sense of gratitude also makes us feel more positive, better and younger.”

Sharing insights on the newly launched DSC Club, Dr Chandra said, “We have started the DSC Club to identify talents of each individual through a scientific method which will help in career guidance. The DSC Club aims to create a talent pool in different parts of the country and become a bridge between potential entrepreneurs and financial institutions. We want to identify the change agents in the country who will become a part of the editorial team of an e-newspaper for their own city, assembly or constituency.”


Dr Subhash Chandra (DSC) show is aired every week on Saturday at 10 pm on Zee News and 7pm on Zee Business and on Sundays at 11 am on both Zee News & Zee Business. This show is also aired on other channels of Zee Media Corporation Limited.
