How is technology changing the publishing landscape?

Technology has been disrupting every sector, and when it comes to publishing, it is no different! There has been a significant shift in the entire publishing landscape with the introduction of new technology. With change comes challenges, but to adapt and evolve into something better or become obsolete is a choice that remains.

If you talk about the publishing scenario a decade ago, desktops or internet were hardly accessible by all. But considering the current scenario, things have changed drastically. Even in the remotest corners, people have access to the internet, devices like cell phone, tablets etc. Life has become much more convenient with ease of access. The far-reaching and interactive nature of the internet represents new possibilities in how industries are organised in relation to production and consumption.

Prior to this change, newspapers were a dominant source of media. But with changing times and evolution of digital devices, it can be counted as just one of the many options. In case of books, journals or magazine publishing, you have e-books besides social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, G+ etc to make your content available to a large audience.

Salman Khan in Jail- Who Gives A BUCK!

Salman Khan

Some recent events (you know which ones), make it evident that our loyalty and trust, when it comes to worshiping our Gods or Godmen or Cricket, remains unparallel.

We live in a culture of hooliganism, mobs and judgmentalism, where righteousness entails to be the way of life.

EXCEPT, when it comes to celebrities!

Be it movie stars, religious figures, sports personalities, politicians and anybody and everybody who we could look upto. Bhakti is the essence of Indian culture and we oh- so- proudly carry the tag everywhere. The tendency of ‘celebrity worship syndrome’ in our country is euphoric.
