9/ Yogish: Media attached

Girish BSNL: 🙂🙏

Chandrakant Acharya: ಸ್ಪಂದನ ಇದೇ ಕೂಟದ ಕನ್ನಡ ಹೆಸರೇ???

Kollegala Sharma: ಗೊತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ.

Yogish: Spandana is a name of joint event. This is an error from mediaBtw, how many media were present ?

We didn’t form a new group named ‘Spandana’ . We just provided a name ONLt for the event because it was a joint event by 3 groups.

Krishnamurthy: Yes it is wrong reporting

Chandrakant Acharya: Now issues!! Even spandana has become svandana inside!!!

ಮುಂಬರುವ ಕೂಟದ ಸಮಾರಂಭದ ಪ್ರೆಸ್ ರಿಲೀಸ್ ತಯಾರಿಸಿ ಕೊಡುವುದೊಳ್ಳೆಯದು!! ಏನು ಮಾಹಿತಿ ತಲುಪಬೇಕಿದೆ, ಅದೇ ತಲುಪುತ್ತದೆ!!!

Guru Poornima: ‘Spandana’ is fine, since it was a joint event, of course press release was well planned by Dr.Sandeep…. And we had titled the event as ‘ಸ್ಪಂದನ’

Yogish: Title ‘Spandana Swayam Sewaka Sangha Rachane’ is wrong.Vijaya Karnataka can fix this error.

Guru Poornima: S I agree, yes it was self assumed by  media

Hemanth Sharma: Agree👍

Yogish: Me too agree 👍

Girish Mudigere: 👍😊🙏 Kindly avoid wishes…….huge festivals……so

Chandrakant Acharya: ಸರಿ ಸಾರ್!!!

Ashok Gowda: ಸ್ಪಂದನ ಚಿರಾಯುವಾಗಲಿ.

ಗಿರೀಶ್ ಮತ್ತು ತಂಡದ ಕಾರ್ಯ ಶ್ಲಾಘನೀಯ.

ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಮೂಡಿ ಬಂತು.

ಹಿರಿಯರಾದ ವಿನಯಣ್ಣ. ಹಾಗೂ ಚಿರಂಜೀವಿ ಸಿಂಗ್‌ರ ಉಪಸ್ಥಿತಿ ಮೆರುಗು ತಂದಿತು.

ಭಾಗವಹಿಸಿದ ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಶುಭವಾಗಲಿ.

Krishnamurthy: Sandeep Ji – please convey this error to Vijay Karnataka about this error in reporting and advise for correction thru email Please..

– Girish Mudigere: 😊👍🙏

Kalgudi Naveen: 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

Girish Mudigere: 😊👍🙏 Name nalli yenide sir…..i personally feel report is just ok….if not big applaud.Work is important

Dr Sandeep Nayak: This is total false news

Girish Mudigere: It was done excellently by Dr Sandeep sir. Lets reform core group with this group

9/4/16, 10:40 – Girish Mudigere: Lets request humbly to leave group for high volume of messages…..we can move few interested persons with less messages to DS info team

Dr Sandeep Nayak: I have no idea who the reporter is and who spoke to whom.I have sent the press release. This is bad journalism.

Rakesh Gowda: Great job sandeep sir👍

Girish Mudigere: Who wish high messages remain here ….then we merge few core members here. Yes….It was done excellently by Dr Sandeep sir

9/4/16, 10:46 – Core Guru Poornima: No media person came to us and approached….. It s self assumption …to make their work easier.. We must complain about this as it is a false message…😣

Dr Sandeep Nayak: 👍🏽

Guru Poornima: Let them republish our concept

HM Sunitha: Instead of complaining we will praise them and tell them to correct andPublish in tomorrow’s edition with our version

Guru Poornima: ‘Mistake is a mistake’as it reaches millions of population

Hemanth Sharma: Whatever diplomacy or straight, it is necessary to report mistake…

Guru Poornima: Our Teams ‘s effort is more precious

Dr Sandeep Nayak: If someone can get me the right phone number to reach, that will be good/I will talk

Guru Poornima: Pl wait Sandeep, will get you/I m trying

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Thank you

Guru Poornima: Vijaya Karnataka.vcf (file attached)

Rakesh Gowda: Janake vishya thalupodhu mukya ….badhalavane tharodhu mukya

Guru Poornima: ತಪ್ಪು ಸಂದೇಶ ತಲುಪಬಾರದು/ತಪ್ಪು ಸಂದೇಶ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸದೇ ಇರುವುದೇ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದು

Yogish: As I said earlier Vijaya Karnataka can give corrected version of the news  in tomorrow’s news paper if someone from our group give them corrected news.

No doubt Dr. Sandeep did an excellent job to organize this program from USA and then participate in person along with Anna Vinaya Chandra sir. Kudos to Dr. Sandeep, Girish, Anna and to all volunteers. 🙏


Yogish: Please fill out the survey when you get a chance. This is 100% anonymous survey. No name , phone number or email id will be asked.

Spandana – Joint Event Survey Form

. Rakesh Gowda: Who is founder of Chirayu spandana

JB Ramakrishna, V: Media attached

Krishnamurthy: Poornima – just recheck if possible that right message / reporting has gone for printing with other news dailies as well

Yogish: There are few errors in this report too. I think we did not clarify to media about our group name and concept. Our group name is ‘Develop Schools’ . Our Concept is NMMO. Anyway I stop paying much attention to media coverage.

NGO Dr Sandeep Nayak: Yeah.

Guru Poornima: In fact they are not accurate about our concept.

Kollegala Sharma: Yogish. It is not on front page and is on local page. Only interested people will notice.

Yogish: Agree, let’s not worry about the media error. We have to fix in many places. We don’t have time for that. Let’s move forward.

Guru Poornima: As media is the strongest means of communication, we can’t compromise on such blunders.😟

Kollegala Sharma: Now. Our actions will speak. One thing I gained in these three months is resources which I can tap to help my activities in the schools I am working with. If each of us have learnt this we have been empowered tremendously

Guru Poornima: But such hurdles discourages the system

Kollegala Sharma: True. That is why I had cautioned to have a single window communication. With media

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Few days back, someone in the group discussed about possible crowd-sourcing model. Can we discuss more about it, please?

Guru Poornima: Which was self assumed window!

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Which means?

Poornima: Media s information

Dr Sandeep Nayak: I tried to reach out to them with the number you provided but could not reach

Guru Poornima: Oh

Yogish: As suggested earlier a spokesperson or a PRO is required to give media coverage and also to talk to public.

Kollegala Sharma: Lets learn from this and go forward.

Guru Poornima: S true👍

Dr Sandeep Nayak: True.

Kollegala Sharma: Dr. Sandeep. Puttur event can look into this.

Guru Poornima: No media People came and introduced in fact.

Yogish: Lesson learned

  1. Media will assume something and will spread the error in their report
  2. 100% dependency on technology.

I mean 100% dependency on technology is not a good idea

Guru Poornima: Lack of professionalism too

Hemanth Sharma: Next ask them to share first what they are printing… Is it possible? Next time

Yogish: Sandeep, you are getting valuable feedback for Puttur seminar

Guru Poornima: Anyway its a lesson…. Positively👍 😀

Dr Sandeep Nayak: Officially No. Media in Puttur is easier than Bengaluru

Guru Poornima: May be due to festival

Kollegala Sharma: Chirayu is a wish. Long live Spandana. But Spandana was the name of one day event. Not organization. Spandana was thought of to spread an idea of volunteerism for development. Not for creation of an organization. Isnt it?

Girish : 🙂

9/4/16, 20:02 – Core Yogish: Initially assign more people where badge is distributed to avoid the mess. Many registered participants did not go for badge and did not report.

9/4/16, 20:03 – NGO Dr Sandeep Nayak: 👍🏽

9/4/16, 20:03 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: No. Media will publicise what they learn. It is always good to tell them what is happening instead of waiting for them to understand. Next meet we should prepare a kit /note on the aims, participants and expectations of the meetings. We should more careful if VIPs are attending. In that event a press note is a must

9/4/16, 20:04 – NGO Dr Sandeep Nayak: We had a press note sent to all media.

9/4/16, 20:04 – Core Hemanth Sharma: Then how we will ensure they understood our objectives… this mess is again going to happen then

9/4/16, 20:04 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: It should also be given at the venue.

9/4/16, 20:05 – NGO Dr Sandeep Nayak: News paper errors are not new to me though. It’s usual phenomenon.

9/4/16, 20:06 – NGO Dr Sandeep Nayak: But these reports were blunders

9/4/16, 20:06 – Core Guru Poornima: This is possible only when there is a better communication.

It is the responsiblity of the media reporters to be communicative,as press release was made well in advance .

9/4/16, 20:06 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: Yes. We need to also learn to ignore such errors😀

9/4/16, 20:06 – Core Guru Poornima: They can’t just assume and publish

9/4/16, 20:07 – Core Yogish: 3. Keep at least 10 mins for Q&A after every presentation.  Or we can simply say that there is no Q&A session in the event list  itself.

9/4/16, 20:08 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: As I said not much loss has happened. We have learnt a lesson gainef. Let us move forward and help Sandeep for his meet.

9/4/16, 20:09 – Core Yogish: I agree, press release at the venue is also important because the reporter may not aware of the press release that we sent earlier.

9/4/16, 20:09 – Core Hemanth Sharma: Ignoring is fine…that is after event… What to from our side to avoid…media is not in our control…better have to have the media where we have good relationship

9/4/16, 20:11 – Core Hemanth Sharma: Will media briefing help?

9/4/16, 20:12 – Core Guru Poornima: Rather damages

9/4/16, 20:12 – Core Yogish: Moving forward we should build good rapport with media. Let’s not fight with them, especially at our initial stages  even though it is blunder.

9/4/16, 20:12 – Core Hemanth Sharma: 👍

9/4/16, 20:12 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: My experience with media as a PR.

  1. Never schedule anything at 9.00. Poor attendance is guaranteed.
  2. If there is a VIP see to it that a press note is issued at the venue and the same may also be sent to absentee media
  3. Use simple language in press notes.
  4. Note shorter than a page will get better coverage
  5. Have one person to interact before, during and after the event. His/her contact should be available with media

9/4/16, 20:13 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: This is what media expects.

9/4/16, 20:14 – Core Guru Poornima: No person fought with them.

9/4/16, 20:14 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: There are other nittigritties with regard to video and audio media.

9/4/16, 20:14 – +91 78293 65481: <Media omitted>

9/4/16, 20:14 – Core Yogish: Agree 👍

9/4/16, 20:16 – Core Guru Poornima: It s a human tendency, to expect the actual report in public, and results after the team effort.

9/4/16, 20:18 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: Lets also remember two humans do not have the same perspective of a thing unless pointed out. Media kits are just that. To ask media to look in the same angle as we are.

9/4/16, 20:18 – Core Guru Poornima: Then y did we approach Media?

9/4/16, 20:19 – Core Guru Poornima: Nobody can work mechanically

9/4/16, 20:19 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: We need a vehicle. How we ride depends on it. Left to itself, it will run blindly in any direction.

9/4/16, 20:20 – Core Guru Poornima: With the bad roads !!!!!

9/4/16, 20:20 – MUST Kollegala Sharma: Poornima maam. Bad roads need special skills😀

9/4/16, 20:21 – Core Guru Poornima: Let us reconstruct the bad roads rather compromising

9/4/16, 20:21 – Core Guru Poornima: Skill always works with the facts



Yogish: Lesson learned

  1. Media will assume something and will spread the error in their report
  2. 100% dependency on technology is not a good idea.
  3. Keep at least 10 mins for Q&A after every presentation. Or we can simply say that there is no Q&A session in the event list itself.
  4. In the beginning assign more people where badge is distributed to avoid the mess/crowd. This is where the first impression about our program starts. This will give accurate headcount of participants too

Kindly note that these points are not  to blame anyone. We are learning the lessons to improve further.

Overall the event went very well beyond our expectation.

Kollegala Sharma: I have been working with media for more than two decades. Lets not get worked up with this report which, in any case, has no impact on our progress. Nor is it a hurdle.

Guru Poornima: 👍

Hemanth Sharma: OK we learned… Let’s make 2-3 lines media policy to deal with media we can improve it later

Kollegala Sharma: Yes.

Guru Poornima: Let us have better communication and interaction rather dealing with anybody fir that matter.

Kollegala Sharma: Alochanegalu kriyeyaagabeku.

Kollegala Sharma: ನನಗಾ?

Guru Poornima:   I totally agree ನಿಮಗೇ ವಿನಂತಿ

Rakesh Gowda: 👌@sharma sir

Guru Poornima: I m asking Rakesh to attend the meetings…please attend the the meeting and put into actions… We missed you in the event too!

Kollegala Sharma: ಭಯ. ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ ಕ್ಷೇತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ಇನ್ನೂ ಈಗಷ್ಟೆ ಕಾಲಿಟ್ಟಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಗಟ್ಟಿಯಾಗಿ ಅರ್ಥ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಂಡು, ನನ್ನ ವಿಚಾರಗಳಿಗೊಂದು ಪ್ರಾಕ್ಟಿಕಲ್ ರೂಪ ಕೊಟ್ಟು ಬರುವ ಯೋಚನೆ. ಅಷ್ಟೆ.

Guru Poornima: Sir I msgd to Rakesh 😀ನಿಮಗಲ್ಲ ಕ್ಷಮೆ ಇರಲಿ
