Bhubaneswar: Different disciplines shine under different lights. Their best contributions are not made with the same tools. The beauty of an academic institute is its intellectual diversity where creativity and innovation play a major role, said experts here on Friday.
Speaking at a seminar on ‘Academic Excellence: Celebrating Creativity and Innovation’ on the occasion of Annual Prize Distribution Ceremony of Institute of Media Studies (IMS) on its campus, eminent senior journalist Pradosh Patnaik said the world has witnessed a phenomenal and unprecedented explosion in communication technology and media. And journalism and mass communication as a stream of study becomes so important and enviable. Different new dimensions have strengthened the journalism profession today, he said and asked the students to be focused on their career.
