An Evening with Mr. Prem Bahadur Sherpa

This evening was truly delightful!

Project Jagaran’s recent initiative to understand the public perception of misinformation led us to an engaging encounter with Mr. Prem Bahadur Sherpa from Bagarkot, Dharan. His insights offer a unique perspective on the media’s evolution and its impact on society.

Mr. Sherpa, a vibrant and insightful individual, hails from the serene town of Bagarkot. His life experiences, spanning several decades, provide a rich backdrop to understand the transformation of media.

Our conversation traversed the changes in media over the years. Mr. Sherpa reminisced about the era when newspapers and radio were the primary sources of news, emphasizing his trust in these traditional mediums. He expressed concern over the rapid rise of social media and the accompanying surge in mis/disinformation.

Mr. Sherpa’s observations echo a common sentiment among many who have witnessed the transition from traditional to digital media. His emphasis on the reliability of traditional media sheds light on the challenges posed by the current information overload and the ease of spreading falsehoods online.

Reflecting on Mr. Sherpa’s insights, it’s evident that the responsibility of discerning truth from fiction has become more complex in the digital age. His perspective underscores the need for media literacy and critical thinking in today’s rapidly changing information environment.

Our meeting with Mr. Sherpa was not just a journey through the history of media but also a reminder of the ongoing battle against misinformation. His wisdom and experience enrich our understanding and fortify Project Jagaran’s commitment to fostering an informed and discerning public.
