In this selection of Dr. Aroon Tikekar's occasional addresses and articles, he unravels with unambiguous clarity the malaise that has struck the society and media. He censures media for its doubletalk, its hysterical demeanor and denounces media persons' hobnobbing with the high and mighty. He specifies causes for its growing conflict with judiciary. He faults the political and cultural forces for turning the Marathi society insular and retrograde. The book provides a rock-steady guide to classical journalism.
