    I read it once – “only dead do not communicate”. Those living communicate every moment, but many times their communication create problems. It happens with individual as well as with mass communication. Many times it is intentional. See, how politicians communicate. Today they some thing and next say they go back on it. Same is with media. An honest and effective communication is the need of the hour, in both individual and mass sector.
