Abstract
India is known as one of the most successful democracies in the world indeed, and no doubt the credit goes to its public opinion safeguarded and represented by the media. The earliest record on the freedom of press/media can be traced to the Rig Veda where it finds its expression as “Aano Bhadra kartavo vishwatah” meaning- Let noble thoughts come from all directions. In the history of public reasoning in India, a considerable credit goes to the Buddhists, who had a great commitment to discussions as a means of social progress. This commitment produced among other results, some of the earliest open general meetings in the world. The so-called Buddhist councils which aimed at settling disputes between different points of view.
