‘Media situation not much changed’

May 04: President of the Bhutan Chapter of Third World Media Network (TWMN), also editor of and Bhutan News Service T. P. Mishra has strongly called on the international communities including the rights and media groups to mount pressure on concerned authorities for the establishment of media freedom in Bhutan.

Presenting a 20-minute paper on the theme “The status of press freedom, the media and citizens in Bhutan after democratization”, today on last day of the two-day regional conference for South Asia in commemoration of World Press Freedom Day 2009 in Kathmandu, Mishra also highlighted the plight of exiled Bhutanese journalists.

“Not much has been changed in media sector even though Bhutan says it has already stepped into democratization process”, reads the paper, adding that the existing Bhutanese media houses have not been able to give space for the suppressed voices of rural areas, and in particular of Nepali-ethnic group in Southern region of the country.

Mishra also raised the ‘identity issue’ of exiled Bhutanese journalists. Terming the existence of media inside Bhutanese refugee camps in Nepal as one of the best instances, Mishra also said there is a need for the similar existence of media bodies inside refugee camps around the world to highlight their plight.

The conference, organized jointly by the Federation of Nepali Journalists and UNESCO, also made a declaration on media freedom in South Asia, which demanded that state authorities in the countries of the participants of the conference explicitly denounce the acts of lawlessness against the media and institute appropriate sanctions against those responsible.

“We call upon the enforcement authorities in our countries to bring to justice those responsible for acts of violence against journalists and media organizations”, reads the declaration, adding- “We pledge our commitment to working together as a cohesive network to support each other in our common aspiration to improve and assert press freedom and the rights of journalists in the South Asia region.”

Senior journalists and media freedom activists from South Asian countries including Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri-Lanka, Maldives and Afghanistan attended the seminar.

KATHMANDU, March 31 - Minister for Information and Communications Krishna Bahadur Mahara said on Tuesday that the Nepal government will take fresh initiatives to return Bhutanese refugees to their homeland.
“The government has not taken strong enough initiatives for the return of refugees to their homeland,” said Mahara at a book-launch in Kathmandu on Tuesday.

Exiled Bhutanese leader Tek Nath Rijal expressed concern over Nepal government's apathy toward the plight of Bhutanese refugees. “Refugees are being settled in third countries, but Nepal government has not taken any recent initiative for refugees seeking to go back to Bhutan,” said Rijal. According to him, third country resettlement and repatriation should go side by side.

Spotlight on: Media Helping Media


When lack of time and money began preventing senior British editor David Brewer from accomplishing everything he wanted with his media development projects around the world, he turned to a place where time and space don’t exist.

“It’s about cost, capacity and accessibility,” he said via e-mail. “It was clear that there was a need for training resources to be made available, free-of-charge, written to address the client’s training need. It was also a matter of helping them train their own staff.”

Media Helping Media, a 7-year-old website full of resources for developing media outlets, began as a basic forum. Today it is a rich hub of resources geared to aid media in post-conflict areas.

Four deep sections of static modules are available: media management, editorial ethics, journalism training and investigative reporting. The site also hosts issues-themed articles from around the world. It also boasts a new forum section.

Everything is published is under a Creative Commons 3.0 license, so content on the site may be redistributed with attribution for noncommercial use.

Brewer pays for it all out of his own pocket.

There are 22 modules in the section on journalism training, making it the biggest category. These chapters include information about creating journalistic content with words, sounds or images.

Many of the modules were created upon request. Brewer said he writes most of the modules while travelling, often in airports or on planes.

“Recently, a journalist from the border tribal region in Pakistan wrote asking whether there were any training modules about interviewing politicians … so I decided to write a module entitled ‘Interviewing Politicians for TV and Radio’,” he said. “A few weeks ago another journalist from Africa asked for a module about how an online news story should develop, so I wrote ‘Updating an Online News Item’. Others are contributed by colleagues, such as the piece about the public interest, entitled ‘The highest purpose in journalism’.”

Brewer got his start in newspapers before moving over to radio. He worked seven years with Radio Merseyside in Liverpool before continuing on to the BBC for another radio gig. He served nine years as political editor for BBC Regional Political Unit. In 1997, he was selected to launch BBC News Online. He launched Europe, Middle East and Africa in 2000.

It’s possible to follow him on Twitter.

In 2002 Brewer started Media Ideas International, a business under which he does consulting work and runs Media Helping Media. He operates the site by himself on the free, open-source software Joomla.

One of his proudest Media Helping Media moments came when he was solicited to help write a chapter for a handbook for journalists in exile. TP Mishra, a local journalist who had been using Brewer’s training resources for three years in his work in the Bhutanese refugee camps in Nepal, approached the Briton for help. Brewer helped Mishra with the training necessary to write the book.

“TP is the editor of The Bhutan Reporter and says that MHM was the inspiration for him to achieve what he has achieved,” Brewer said over e-mail. “I also enjoy writing training modules that are well received and which I then find out are being used as the foundation modules for in-country training courses run by local journalists for local journalists. That is extremely satisfying.”

There are several challenges Media Helping Media seeks to help news outlets meet:

Reaching financial sustainability en route to editorial independence
Setting out a compelling content proposition (digging where others don’t) to informs the public debate via issue-led journalism
Introducing editorial values of balance, impartiality and objectivity
Creating converged, multiplatform news offerings that deliver content to whatever devices the audience may wish to turn to in order to access information
Identifying the audience, both the current audience, the target audience and the potential audience
Building a sales and marketing strategy that matches the content proposition, the target audience and the market.
Building capacity, to train their own staff and take on to train others in the region.

‘Too early to say Bhutan has press freedom’

Kathmandu, May 03, 2009: A Bhutanese journalist working with a weekly newspaper published from Thimphu said it would be too early to say that Bhutan has press freedom even after the country adopted constitution and changed its politics from absolute monarchy to parliamentary democracy last year.

In his presentation made at the regional conference in Kathmandu organized jointly by Panos South Asia, UNESCO and Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ) marking the international press freedom day, reporter or Bhutan Observer Nedrup Zangpo also outlined the difficulties Bhutanese media have been facing for sustenance.

Lack of advertisement, low rate of circulation and lack of adequate media professionals are some of the hurdles he pointed out of the Bhutanese media. He said, the government promoted its mouthpiece Kuensel as daily paper recently and most advertisement from the government are given only to Kuensel. The private companies rarely come up for advertisement, leading to collateral hindrances for sustainability to budding media industry of this youngest democracy.

In his presentation entitled ‘A scenario of media law in Bhutan’, he further said all journalists working with Bhutanese media inside the country have very little or no information about professional journalism and its ethics.
Zangpo also said the politicians and bureaucracy have not changed their behavior with media though political system has changed which he cited as lack of knowledge on them regarding the importance of media for national development. He said they have been questioned ‘why’, whenever journalists write opinion pieces in newspapers. “Bureaucrats are not used to in accepting critical stories,” he said.

He criticized the code conduct prepared by the government, saying it has been imposed without consent of the journalists. The code was prepared by the previous non-democratic government and has not been reviewed since then.

However, Zongpo mention that with the change in politics and emergence of Bhutan Observer and Bhutan Times, two dailies, Bhutanese media have been doing good on their part despite hurdles and challenges.

Zangpo quoted politicians during the recent discussion between media and parliamentarians in the initiative of Center for Media and Democracy, saying “We need happy stories as we say Gross National Happiness”.

Two papers of Bhutanese media are scheduled to be presented at the conference from Bhutan by T. P. Mishra (editor) and Vidhyapati Mishra (manager) of Bhutan News Service and

Journalists decorated with awards

Kuensel’s reporter Phuntsho Choden won award for best investigative reporting award. Though the budding media industry and journalism beginners are yet to get better at reporting beat and soft news, it is unclear on what basis the government categorized reports as investigative reporting.

Choden’s reporting on the short supply and poor quality of school textbooks was termed the best investigative reporting.

Kuensel won three more awards: The Dark Side of Night Hunting, a feature by Tashi Dema, recognized as the most prominent social issue and Tenzin Dorji was given the best photographer.

Observer’s Dzongkha editorial team won the best Dzongkha edition of the year beside its cartoonist Chimmi R Namgyel receiving best newspaper cartoon award for Zero Tolerance.

Bhutan Times got three more awards, including the Best Newspaper design. Its editor Gopilal Acharya was awarded for best business report for his article, Heartbreak House. Karma Singye Dorji from the same paper, who happened to be one of the three judges, received best political report for his article One Year of Democracy.

Radio Valley (RV)’s Suja Show, by Ugyen Wangmo, was declared the most entertaining program while Mang Ghi Damkha or Music on Demand’s Pema Wangchuk was the best radio host of the year.

Two other radio stations, Centennial Radio and Kuzoo FM knocked out of the scene.

Government owned Bhutan Broadcasting Service (BBS) took three: Dawa as the best TV anchor and Damcho Wangchuk as most informative radio program for his coverage of the police-youth partnership program. And Neten Dorjee’s documentary on King Jigme Wangchuck was awarded the best television program of the year.

Temzing Lamsang, who was more critical of the government policies and corruptions in public offices, was given not a single award despite his few well written articles.

Two other judges were secretary of the ministry of information and communications and former Kuensel editor Kinley Dorji Kay Kirby Dorji, a former journalist with Los Angeles Times.

Thimphu, May 19, 2009: One of the private radio stations in Thimphu join hands with a Swiss to start a 24 hour live streaming online.

The country’s first streaming internet radio station,, is webcasting from the capital and is available for broadband internet users only.

The station, opened by a visiting Swiss consultant, Hans J Keller, and run in conjunction with private FM Radio Valley, webcasts Buddhist teachings and Bhutanese music to anyone connected to broadband internet, government mouth piece Kuensel said.

According to its press release, the internet radio station “will be the first to promote Bhutan’s culture and many of the causes associated with its spiritual roots and sense of human justice and dignity.” The station aims to achieve this by webcasting programs, ranging from Buddhist teachings by prominent rinpoches and scholars, to featuring visiting tourists on talk shows.


Keller, who founded the station, said that, since there was no such stations in Bhutan, the time was right to establish one. “It’s a public service to Bhutan,” he said. Its target audience will mostly be Bhutanese and people interested in Bhutan who reside abroad.

पुस्तक समिछा: निर्वासन पत्रकारिताका भोगाइ

राजाराम गौतम
केही दिनअघि विश्व प्रेस स्वतन्त्रता दिवस -मे ३) को अवसरमा नेपाल पत्रकार महासंघद्वारा आयोजित कार्यक्रममा भुटानको निजी अखबार भुटान अब्जर्भरका सम्पादक नेड्रुप जाङ्पोले आफ्नो देशमा प्रेस स्वतन्त्रता नभएको स्वीकारे ।

उनले भने भुटानी प्रशासक र नेताले आलोचनालाई अझै पनि सहज रूपमा लिन नसकेको बताएका थिए । सरकारी तथ्यांकमा करिब साढे सात लाख जनसंख्या भएको उक्त देशमा तीनवटा अखबार छन् -सरकारी मुखपत्र क्युन्सेल र दुई निजी क्षेत्रका भुटान अब्जर्भर र भुटान टाइम्स) । क्युन्सेल लाई सरकारी विज्ञापन उपलब्ध छ, तर निजी अखबार स्थापनाको केही वर्षभित्रै संकटमा परेका छन् । तर योभन्दा पनि मुख्य कुरो ती युवा सम्पादकले भनेझैं सत्ता र शक्तिमा भएका व्यक्ति तथा जनप्रतिनिधिको आलोचना गर्न नपाउने अवस्थामा छन्, भुटानी अखबार ।

भुटानभित्र स्वतन्त्र पत्रकारिताको अवस्था दयनीय भए पनि प्रवासको पत्रकारिता केही हदसम्म राम्रो देखिन्छ । पटक-पटकको संकटका बाबजुद मासिक अखबार द भुटान रिपोर्टर निस्किरहेकै छ । नेपालका शिविरदेखि पश्चिमा राष्ट्रसम्म फैलिएका शरणार्थी बारेका खबर अनलाइनमार्फत प्रकाशित भइरहेका छन् । एफएमबाट समेत शरणार्थी सरोकार प्रसारण भइरहेको छ । यसको श्रेय जान्छ, केही जुझारु भुटानी शरणार्थी युवालाई जसले आफ्नो गाँस काटेर भए पनि सूचनाको दीयोलाई निभ्न दिएका छैनन् । यिनै मध्येका एक ठाकुरप्रसाद मिश्रले आफ्नै बलबुतामा हालै एक पुस्तक प्रकाशित गरेका छन्, बिकमिङ अ जर्नालिस्ट इन एक्जाइल । शरणार्थीको संघर्षको कथा आफंैमा मर्मस्पर्शी हुन्छ । त्यसमाथि निर्वासनको पत्रकारिता साधनस्रोतको कमी, कानुनी उल्झनजस्ता विषयले थिचिएको हुन्छ । तर जस्तै अवस्थामा भए पनि मान्छेलाई सूचनाको दरकार हुन्छ । मिश्रले आफ्नो पुस्तकमार्फत यिनै कुरा उजिल्याएका छन् ।

एक सय अठ्ठाइस पृष्ठको पुस्तकको आवरणमा लेखकको हिँडिरेको अवस्थाको तस्वीर छ, जसमा उनी सम्पादक रहेको भुटान रिपोर्टरको चाङ वितरणका लागि प्रेसबाट बोकेर डेरातिर लैजाँदैछन् । अमेरिकी पत्रकार लौरा एलिजावेथ पौलले खिचेको तस्वीरले शरणार्थी पत्रकारिताको यथार्थ झल्काउँछ । पन्ना पल्टाउँदै जाँदा थाहा हुन्छ, पुस्तकका लेखक र सम्पादक मिश्रले अरूको पनि सहयोग लिएका रहेछन् । अन्य सातजना पत्रकारिता र लेखनसम्बद्ध व्यक्तिको नाम उनले सहलेखकका रूपमा राखेका छन् । तिनमा भुटानी शरणार्थी -आरपी सुब्बा, नन्द गौतम, आईपी अधिकारी) देखि बेलायती -डेभिड ब्यु्रअर) र भारतीय पत्रकार -सुवीर भौमिक) सम्म छन् ।

पुस्तक चार भागमा विभाजित छ । पहिलो अध्यायमा पत्रकारिता के हो, यसका सिद्धान्त के छन्, पत्रकार बन्न के कस्ता गुण हुनुपर्छ जस्ता आधारभूत जानकारी छन् । पहिलो अध्यायकै दोस्रो लेख 'क्यानन्स अफ जर्नालिजम'मा आचारसंहिताका कुरा छन् । डेभिडले लेखेको 'बिकमिङ अ जर्नालिस्ट' शीर्षक लेखमा ती पाका पत्रकारले सञ्चारका विभिन्न विधा -रेडियो, टीभी, छापा) मा काम गर्दाका आफ्ना अनुभवसँगै पत्रकारिताका पक्षबारे सविस्तार लेखेका छन् । दोस्रो र तेस्रो अध्याय क्रमशः भुटानभित्र पत्रकारिता र आमसञ्चारको अवस्था र शरणार्थी शिविरको पत्रकारितामाथि केन्दि्रत छ । भुटानभित्र र शरणार्थी शिविरबारे माथि नै उल्लेख गरिसकियो । कुरा तिनै हुन् । पुस्तकमा हाल भुटानमा जेलजीवन बिताइरहेका शरणार्थी पत्रकार शान्तिराम आचार्यको मुद्दासमेत उठाइएको छ ।

पुस्तकको अर्को उल्लेख्य पक्ष हो, तीन पत्रकारहरूले लेखेको आफ्नो करिअर भोगाइ सम्बन्धी लेख । जस्तो- 'जर्नालिजम ः राइजिङ अबोभ द आइडेन्टिटी ब्यारिअर' शीर्षक लेखमा बीबीसीका पूर्वोत्तर भारत संवाददाता सुवीर भौमिकले त्रिपुरा राज्यमा सुरुवाती दिनमा रिपोर्टर हुँदाको अनुभव बाँडेका छन् । उनी त्रिपुरामा सन् १९८० को दसकमा भएको दंगामा आदिवासी र बंगाली आप्रवासी बीचको भीडन्तको प्रसंग कोटयाउँछन् । आदिवासी समुदायका न कुनै अखबार थिए न पत्रकार नै । बंगाली बहुल मिडियाले आफ्नै जातिको पीडामात्र वर्णन गर्दा आदिवासीको मुद्दा ओझेलमा परेको भौमिकको भनाइ छ । त्यसो हँुदा पत्रकारिताको एक महत्त्वपूर्ण कडी सन्तुलन गुम्न पुग्छ । पत्रकारले परिचयको तगारोबाट माथि उठ्नुपर्ने उनको निष्कर्ष छ । नेपालमा पनि 'आइडेन्टिटी पोलिटिक्स'ले पछिल्लो समय ठाउँ पाइरहेका बेला भौमिकको निक्र्योल हाम्रालागि पनि सान्दर्भिक हुनसक्छ ।
