In general, "media" refers to various means of communication. For example, television, radio, and the newspaper are different types of media. The term can also be used as a collective noun for the press or news reporting agencies. Media is source of information or communication. Media includes sources like print media and electronics media. It denotes an item specifically designed to reach a large audience. It plays a vital role in creating and spreading awareness.
Power of media can transform the whole society especially in the developing countries. I think the most important use of media is to educate the people about the basic human rights. The dilemma of the developing countries is that people are not fully aware of their basic rights and if they know, they don't know about what to do and where to go. They don't know their collective strength. Even they don't know how to protest and what is the importance of protests.
