“When you laugh, you change and when you change the whole world changes around you.” Dr. Madan Kataria

World Press Freedom day

World Press Freedom Day : Every year, 3 May is a date which celebrates the fundamental principles of press freedom, to evaluate press freedom around the world, to defend the media from attacks on their independence and to pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the exercise of their profession.

World Press Freedom Day was first organised by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993 in an effort to reflect upon press freedom in the world. The day marks the anniversary of the Declaration of Windhoek, a statement of press freedom principles put together by African journalists in 1991 to promote an independent and pluralistic African press. This holiday is celebrated on May 3.
