Abstract:

Nationalism is a feeling of bonding with the country. Nation cannot be confined in geographical boundaries. In India, nationalism has born as a revolt to British rule- a revolt to get political and economic freedom. In the era of British rule, media played crucial role in giving birth to the feeling of nationalism in the poverty stricken people. Media was used as tool to communicate and unite people by the nationalist leaders to fight for freedom from the foreign rule. Media played a crucial role in awakening the people to fight for the freedom. Journalists, reformers and freedom fighters recognised the strength of written word and used it as a tool to spread the word about freedom and essence of nationalism. Press, in pre-independence era was used to revolt against the wrong policies of the government and to eradicate the social evils prevailing in Indian society.
