Media persons are the unofficial ambassadors of communities ,their contribution towards building the society is commendable said Asif Husain ,state secretary of the JIH,Goa.He further said that journalists are assets of communities but unfortunately they are neglected ,we felt that if we want to get benefit from their talent then they have to be motivated and their services should be recognized before youngsters .
In a attempt to recognise contribution of media persons and inspire Goan students Editorial board of “Taare Zameen Par” magazine has felicitated Goan Muslim journalists on Sunday 25th December at The International Center Dona Paulo,Panjim .
