SANKHUWASABHA, April 19: Communication services have been restored in Bhotkhola, the remote northern region of Sankhuwasabha District, after a week since they were disrupted.

What, then, are the basic tenets of writing for TV and radio news? The main objective is clarity. The sole purpose of mass communication is to communicate factual information succinctly, with no chance of misunderstanding or ambiguity.

Communication is the lifeblood of human interaction, serving as the conduit through which ideas, emotions, and conflicts flow. In the intricate web of interpersonal relationships, the mechanisms of dialogue, monologue, and soliloquy play pivotal roles in navigating and resolving conflicts. These linguistic devices, often employed in literature and drama, offer valuable insights into the dynamics of human connections and provide profound means of conflict resolution.

KIGALI – As the COVID-19 pandemic has shown, communication is a double-edged sword. It is one of the most powerful tools for changing behaviors. It can create awareness of—and compassion for—the plight of vulnerable groups, which suffer disproportionately during crises. When paired with a strong equity agenda and credible leadership, it can drive positive and inclusive action. But when it is misused—distorted by false assumptions, shortsightedness, and narrow self-interest—communication can be a dangerous weapon.
