Direction(9-18): Read the following paragraph and answer: Edmunde Burke called the press the Fourth Estate of the realm. I think

he did not use this title for the Press thoughtlessly as social ruling group or class. The three Estates or Realms (in England) Lords

Spiritual (i.e., the Bishops in the House of Lords), the ‘temporal, (i.e. other Lords) and Commons, i. e., the common people). The

Press has been rightly called the Fourth Estate as it also. constitutes a ruling group or class like the Lords and Commons. It cannot

be denied in a free country that the Press exercises good deal of influence in shaping public opinion and pointing out the

weaknesses or def ects of society or of Government, and ‘in general bringing to light all those good or bad things in society which

would have otherwise remained unnoticed. The power is not limited or put under any check. The Press, instead of, being controlled

by anyone controls life and thought of a nation: Hence the Press constitutes an Estate by itself.

Obviously. thus power which the Press in an ’ country wields depends upon the number of newspaper readers. The opinions . and

comments of newspapers can influence. the life of a nation only when they are read, by People. Reading in turn, requires that the

general mass of people should be educated. Thus, the spread of education determines the extent of the newspapers. Where

readers are few; newspapers must necessarily be few. Their influence, in that case can extend only to a small minority of

population. In a country like India, the percentage of literacy is very low and the standard of journalism is n9t very high. So P ress

has to play the role of a teacher here.

In May 1966, the World Health Organisation was authorised to initiate a global campaign to eradicate smallpox. The goal was to

eradicate the disease in one decade. Because similar projects for malaria and yellow fever had failed, few believed that smallpox

could actually be eradicated but eleven years after the initial organisation of the campaign, no cases were reported in the field.

The strategy was not only to provide mass vaccinations, but also to isolate patients with active smallpox in order to contain the

spread of the disease and to break the chain of human transmission. Rewards for reporting smallpox assisted in motivating the

public to aid health workers. One by one, each smallpox victim was sought out, removed from contact with others and treated. At

the same time, the entire village where the

victim had lived was vaccinated.

Today smallpox is no longer a threat to humanity. Routine vaccinations have been stopped worldwide.
