Media Watch, Week 1

Media Watch  #1

September 02, 2018 to September 08, 2018

When it comes to transportation in Pune, news and events abound. As a city, where the vehicle population exceeds human population, the questions of urban commute, sustainability, emissions and energy not only pose a difficult challenge but are unavoidable. 

Amid all that is currently happening with respect to urban transport, who gets heard and who gets silenced, what gets visibility and what is relegated to the background, whose concerns endure and whose cease to be news worthy? Apart from the questions of what and who, it is equally a matter of how, focusing on both 'process' and 'result'.

Parisar's Media Watch is a step towards finding an answer to these questions. As part of this initiative, news and events related to Urban Transport will be curated on a weekly basis and brought to your attention. Reports where we find something to be misreported or miscommunicated, we shall mention that too. After a period of one month, we will revisit all the weekly Media Watch and try to analyse the monthly media landscape when it comes to issues related to Urban Transport. 

Join us in this weekly journey!
