Multicuturalism and role of the media-a complex subject. the media though sets agenda, but until the society changes it perception about the way things are done by different people the media role in change cant be effective. Angela Merkel had given clear testimonies and would continue to exist because of us in the media belong to and part of that complex society where one will consistently override the other. the chnage will begin right from the way we train our children-"marry from this family", dont do this or that because its the culture of this inferior society. this can be done away with only if the so rich will be willing to share their wealth with the poor, not employing them as gate men, cleaners, bodyguards, houseboys and women, not sexually exploiting the poor but beautiful women, not exploiting nations resources and make the people there vulnerable to begging etc.

I am living in Europe since long and I still don't understand the meaning of the word" Democracy" and Racism,,,,,,media should try to work more independently sothat the real meaning could be approached more directly.,,,,media knows that politician only deliver false promises and don't like to have critics at all.I shall come back in two days about my views about muticulturalism.

I think that media and politics together play a role in forming perceptions about other cultures. Unfortunately, media is sometimes misused to serve politics. That's the main problem that's causing many of us to think that the differences between the East and the West are huge and just can't be bridged.

The Protection of Children Is not Only a Parental, but Social and Governmental Responsibility

I was happy to see that Google is reminding us of Universal Children's Day as one can see here below from the famous Google Doodle. Yet, one has to focus on the UN Resolution 836 (IX) and which are the fundamental values of that resolution which has to be observed not only by parents, teachers, governments but by entire societies. Therefore, also children that are stateless or living in war areas, have those rights and are entitled to protection of the locals and the international community. …See More
