Let’s work together for a better society
Journalists mean… what they are? The propaganda about how to live is untimely. But they are the least likely to realize that they are all human beings. They have families. Leaders who think there are problems and focus on their problems are few. In the early days of the journalism profession, the optimistic atmosphere is now no more than a magnifying glass. Everything is running and running. The plight of the captives in the hands of the proprietors. Confusion that rights cannot be achieved by law. Those who want to get into journalism and uplift the society are ultimately looking for ways to live their lives and not fight for their rights.
There are countless national and international organizations that advocate for rights. But there is nothing on the national level that is for the welfare of journalists. The National Active Reporters Association is exactly what emerged under such circumstances. Most of the lectures are lectured to stimulate journalists. Of course their goal is separation. Nara Union separates the ambition. The main goal of Nara Union is to recognize and respect the collective efforts of members, not just for the welfare of those in the journalism profession, but also for the different fields of professional journalism.
“With people we… people with us” Under the slogan, Nara Union has achieved many successes. Any community needs to work on predetermined goals. Otherwise, the community would be questioned for survival. The Nara Union has been subjected to many insults in its achievement. The rivalry of the Nara Union, which was formed with a new aim, another rivalry, especially the welfare slogan, was that of the rival gangs and the bombers. Today, Nara Union has expanded its services across the country by taking the caricatures as a challenge.
The aim of the journalists’ welfare is to protect their rights and to move on issues that are set forth in the National Active Reporters Association. Until Independence in 1947, an overwhelming majority of the country’s journalist community was an active participant in the freedom struggle and suffered the same fate as the other freedom-fighters. After Independence, however, the anti-Establishment traditions of the community compelled it to tread a path different from that of the ruling politicians. With the advice and suggestions of senior journalists, Nara Union is moving towards further expansion. Unfortunately, however, a key demands for delinking the ownership of newspapers from other industries remains unfulfilled because of various disturbing developments in the 1970s in both the national body politic and the journalist movement. While the nation faced the Emergency and the beginnings of the coalition era, the Some of the national associations of the past served with almost similar aims suffered a vertical split with the departure of a section of journalists.
As stated earlier, the goal of the emergence of the Nara Union is separation. Only the welfare of journalists is leading the agenda. These developments came handy to the vested interests who continued to weaken the organisation and its militant unity until a stage came where its leadership was usurped by certain self-serving elements. The militant sections of the community had to wage a long struggle against these usurpers but were compelled in late 1980s to sacrifice the name of the organisation to safeguard the community’s common interests and militant traditions.
The N.A.R.A., thus, is the natural successor to the militant movement of the country’s working journalists and is determined to ensure the continuation of its militant traditions. With the emergence of the union, Nara has claimed many successes in her account of the birth of the flower. She hopes to organize various social service initiatives, including financial assistance to journalists in distress. The N.A.R.A. is the one of the representative organisation of journalists in India. It has its affiliates in almost all the States and Union Territories.
The N.A.R.A. is a democratic organisation and is run in accordance with its unique and all-encompassing Constitution, which requires the organisation to hold a national conference after every two years, which is attended by delegates representing all its members from various States. The delegates include National Council members, who are elected by all members of the affiliated State unions according to a formula for representation to ensure that no section of journalists remains unrepresented. The National Council constitutes the main deliberative body of the N.A.R.A. during the period between two national conferences.
The national conference also elects a National Executive Committee. District Committees function at the behest of State Committees and State Committees as per the decisions of the National Committee. The National Executive Committee looks after the day to day affairs and the funds of the Union. The organisation has one President, two Vice Presidents, one Secretary General, four Secretaries, one Treasurer and 13 elected members of the National Executive Committee (NEC). The NEC looks after day to day affairs and the funds of the Union.
The N.A.R.A. will continue to fight for safeguarding the Freedom of the Press, defeating attacks on Journalists and Free Speech; and work for the welfare of journalists. The N.A.R.A. has a large pool of talented young journalists, who will continue to uphold the cause and values for which the N.A.R.A. stands. Our second success is that many admire Nara Union’s pursuit of specific goals. On the one hand, welfare, on the other hand, has become an inspiration to many, while working for the rights of journalists.
