The way Nepal Disaster should have been covered • Might have focused on providing a real news rather than manipulating it with other exaggerating factors. • If Indian reporters reaches the affected area first, then at least they would have carried first-aid material and some food supplies.
  11. 11. The way Nepal Disaster should have covered • First and Foremost, the moral ethics of journalism and what should be reported, what not should be understood well, and only trained Journalist who had previously reported such like panic situation should be sent for Reporting. • Indian media should have also showed the help from other nation on Nepal earthquake.
