The Role of Media and the Power of Information for generation "Z" Zomi e-Citizens

[By Tg. Sianpu]

I strongly believe that “information” is power. It is a power not to be abused but rather to spread out and shared to the unreached people of the world. The right to know and the right to freedom of expression as well as the right to freedom of information should be exercised to every human kind regardless of one’s racial, religious and ideological background.
One of the reasons that draw me strongly to believe in it is to be a voice for the voiceless, and ear for the unheard suffering people of Asian countries like Burma. I personally have seen and been during 1988 revolution as well as Saffron revolution in 2008 in Myanmar. What I’ve seen with my naked eyes are not recorded in neither digital form nor by paper.

It is has been my passion at the same time my dedication to reveal the secret dark side and untold stories of abuses, human rights violations, persecutions and discrimination all kinds of discrimination to minorities. The things I’ve seen and, the experiences I’ve gone through would not be recorded anywhere because of lack of resource and most of it, because of my lack of skill in recording, writing. Therefore, to reveal the truth and to exercise the rights of a human being for the less fortunate people and outskirt areas of the world who will feel relief by my thoughtful contribution and reflection of what it was, what it is and what it can become for a life-changing world.
