positive news media

Is there a niche market for “positive” media in Nepal?

In Nepal, every news (newspaper, online, TV, radio and other media) veers towards negative. Scan the newspapers, turn on your television. You will get plenty of proof. Why? Believe me when I say, it is not because there are not positive stories, personalities or work being done now. There are plenty! but media sanitzes us by feeding us sensationalized news, negative and gossip.

Amidst all this doom and gloom (or so it seems), here is my analysis.  There is a great opportunity for an all positive news” media.  An empowering media which lists current events that are positive and have potential to inspire us .

We could do with more positive stories of:

  1. rags to riches stories of Nepali
  2. social entrepreneurs success and failures
  3. street entrepreneurs of urban centers
  4. risk-takers in different professions
  5. community activists stories
  6. Community successes
  7. discussion transcripts between youths on sociopolitical issues
  8. mentor-ship events
  9. Networking events and fund-raisers.
  10. stories of Nepali uniting with each other on community to international level
  11. adventure stories in Nepal
  12. Nepali traveling in Nepal.

  1. Sure. Appreciate that

    Whenever, wherever needed, Count me in, for any entrepreneurial function/discussion/or even forums

    Good luck. May you achieve

  2. I agree with you! Great comment. I am trying to influence the nepali media in the coming days on the lines of what you are talking about. I am sure when each of us demands positive news and stories, we will get it ! Thanks for the comment and keep writing.

  3. Yes, you are right to say that. Obviously there are bunch of negative news and columns around rather than positive ones. I think, this is what we call breaking news, or latest happening. And everyone is interested to talk about, and pay for that, at least once a day.

    But, news such as entrepreneurial development, small business review, or venture offering can be rarely seen. Why? because entrepreneurial community is not yet so strong in comparison to news media. If entrepreneurs were to build up such community, stage by stage, structured and with a good management system for the networking purpose, there could have chances to see good news from these sources. And, news from entrepreneurs means they speak from their mind backed by business experiences.

    The results: people like us, always want to know what’s really cooking in the market, what’s hot and what’s not.
