(1) Cricket began to be played all over India, to a greater or smaller extent.

(2) The economy of movies is changing.

Answer 1: In 1983, the Indian team won the World Cup for cricket, under the captainship of Kapil Dev. It was a historic victory. Cricket instantly won great popularity across the country. In the same year, Sunil Gavaskar broke the earlier record of maximum centuries in test cricket. In 1985, India won the ‘Benson and Hedges’ World Championship of cricket. As a result, cricket came to be played in all States to a lesser or greater extent, but at the cost of indigenous Indian games.

Answer 2: In the field of entertainment, the place of Hindi movies is incomparable. Hindi movies now compete with ‘global’ movies as they have reached every nook and corner of the world. We see a reflection of politics, social events, industry and technology in the movies. Movies which were 3-4 hours long are now of only one or one and a half hours. Moreover, the concept of one screen and one cinema hall has given way to multiplexes. The days of a movie running for 100 weeks in one cinema hall are over. Now one movie runs in thousands of cinema halls in India and abroad simultaneously. This development has changed the economy of movies.

(1) Why is it necessary to keep alive the dialects of Indian languages?

(2) Elaborate upon the changing form of newspapers.

(3) Which changes have taken place in the medium of television?

Answer 1: It is necessary to keep alive the dialects of Indian languages in order to preserve and respect our diversity. Each Indian language is unique in itself and represents a community. Nevertheless, Hindi, which has reached everywhere through the medium of Hindi movies, has served to unite the country by language.

Answer 2: During the early post-independence period, newspapers had multiple objectives. In this period, the newspapers were expected to not only give the news of daily events, but also give impetus to industry and commerce by printing advertisements. Newspapers functioned with the following objectives: shape public opinion, direct it towards constructive work, at times lead the latter, carry on the task of public education, keep a watch over the government machinery, etc. Earlier, newspapers were black and white. With the changing times, colour printing became common.

Earlier, newspapers were thought to be the mouthpieces of the taluka or district. Now they have to face tough competition from the State level newspaper chains. But on the whole, newspapers are now becoming more active. Their scope has enlarged to include raising funds for drought-affected and flood-affected people, helping meritorious students from lower-income groups to go for higher education and organizing or sponsoring cultural programmes.

Answer 3: Television came to India during the post-independence period. Earlier it was black and white and now it is coloured. It used to telecast educational programmes, news bulletins, detailed reporting of the tours of the President and the Prime Minister. In 1991, CNN channel showed to the entire world a live visual reporting of the Iraq war. In 1998, STAR (Satellite Television Asia Region) a private media house entered India, and the uninteresting, monotonous and propagandist news telecasts of the early period underwent a sea change. The language, the technique of presentation, studios equipped with the latest technology and the use of OB (outdoor broadcasting) vans have expanded the scope of Indian T.V. channels still further, and brought in transparency and variety.
