Post Truth!

Mr. Vipul Solanki

Department of Communication Skills, MEFGI, Rajkot 

As you are aware, Oxford dictionary has declared 'post-truth' as the word of year. Some intellects believe that we have entered in the age of post truth where in the truth is no more relevant. The emotional appeal or personal interest is conquering the truth/fact. The old age morals are breaking and the new age standards are begin established. "Prejudices are being converted into truths." "The truth has replaced believably." On the other hand, we have Gandhiji as our ideal whose whole emphasis is on truth. How do we see the change if there is any change? The discussion in this video (Sarokar: Post Truth) may help to understand it at some extent.

We can have discussion on it.
