The other day I was interacting with a group of graduate students of mass communication and media studies and certain questions posed by a few of them made me uncomfortable. I wish to share my experience with you all Samaritans. The questions which made me most uncomfortable in answering are as follows- What is deference in between science writing, popular science writing, science communication and science journalism? Is it not that science writing or popular science writing as it was addressed only a decade ago has now attained the terminologies/catch phrases like science communication, science journalism? Is this not the practice of putting old wine in new bottles? And then why not ‘science commentary’ as ‘Times of India’ branded one of its reputed science columnists as ‘science commentator’ recently? Friends, I any how answered these questions but neither I nor the students were satisfied. And that’s why the very questions are put before you experts for the amicable solution. Mike sir, are you also listening?
