State of Communication in the Past:

Those of us who have experience of life in remote villages, far away from urban centres, are familiar with such features as poor roads which often become impassable during the rainy season,unreliable.and  irregular postal services, non-existence of telephone facilities and a very small number of individuals who can read and write. What could possibly be the communication links for such a village with the outside world? The answer would perhaps be, the radio and visits of extension workers. The radio is also not available in every household. In such a situation, it is not surprising, if  the people turn inwards and become apathetic or even fatalistic about their economic and social life. Clearly, for a developing country like ours, this is not a very happy situation. Does this situation exist even now? The scenario is undergoing change. Most of our villages have their own institutions like Panchayats.and schools which sometimes function as community centres.

A number of them may have the facility of a telephone connection and if  they are electrified, they may have a TV set at the community centre or even in a few households. Even so, the traditional forms of communication like folk music or  folk drama, and communication from person to person still dominate the communication system. These traditional media can also be utilised for economic development and social awakening.
