Mentioning Bharat Ratan Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam 's quote from his first book, Prof Kuthiala termed it very important for journalists. Dr. Kalam mentioned that it is necessary to be negative sometimes. But if a journalist is negative all the time, he must write at least one positive news every day.

He said that due to increasing readership, newspapers have started giving more space to letter to editor in editorial column.

He told students that, regional newspapers are much liked by readers in comparison to English dailies. Print media students ought to have knowledge of several other mediums.
