PSYCHOLOGICAL AND BEHAVIOURAL IMPACT OF DIGITAL JOURNALISM ON FILM CENSORSHIP
It was after much introspection and a series of consultations that settled on a topic for my very first research work on psychological impact. Some topics like poverty, increasing population, water scarcity, superstitions, etc. as well as some recent subjects like homosexuality did strike my mind, but seemed as obvious and already much talked about. Hence, none of these had a complete agreement from both, the mind and the soul at the same time of my mind. One thing that both settled upon was to choose a topic which has not been easily identified as a social issue, but nevertheless is a part of our everyday routines. I thought that it would only be better if I work on something that is rather immediate to us as individuals and as a part of society that we come from, yet something that was not as evident as it should have been. The topic had to be a unique one, unlike most of the other issues, which are well identified and branded at the national level. ‘Film Censorship’ was one such subject, especially in the context of the Indian Cinema. As an audience, the society has been accustomed to censorship to such an extent that they become indifferent and unaware, and do not question if/why any part of the media is missing from the movies that they are watching. So, we found this topic as the aptest one to be brought to light and as something that everyone should be aware of.
