Having seen extreme hardship, Chetan Bhairam, have been spending his maximum time of education development in rural areas. “Till now, I have attended 250+ varieties of social conferences as a speaker and will continue doing so. During my college life worked for National Social Services, been into part of various social movements. Satisfied with the work as I am doing for social cause, encouraging to general public to work for humanity. Nowadays media is just like a weapon, my team is supporting me a lot to highlight the right issues of general public. We can run a media company with confidence even if we have zero budget (no profit/no gain)without supporting any political party, without fear. Being a journalist, we have to support deserving people & motivate what they do. Problems in village nobody is focusing on, maximum media companies are working for TRP, but there are only few honest journalist exists. Journalism is not all about spreading negative news & propagating wrong message in the society, neither dominating” he adds.

Message by the passionate and honest man, Chetan Bhairam :

“Journalism is all about research, whereas journalist are scientist, they can shape the world with positive writing. Honesty & passion may redefine your character, sometimes money is not important in life, helping others to grow make you feel satisfied. Every small contribution for others without having any expectation, is the key of happiness”
