This 1000-word paper asks you to critically think through a message that is communicated to us through media (print, audio recording, film, TV, digital media, etc.). You will want to argue why this message is – or has been – culturally influential.

The Paper (50% of the mark):

The following outline demonstrates what’s most important to include in this kind of paper. This can be used as a model for outlining/organizing your own paper:

1. Your introduction should do the following:

a. Describe your message: What kind of message is it (song, film, speech, TV broadcast, etc.)? What medium has transmitted this message?

b. Who created this message? Who is the “sender” of it?

c. When did audiences (“receivers”) first encounter it? Was it automatically popular or did it become popular/legendary later?

2. Importantly, the introduction needs to state a claim for why this is an influential media message. This is normally written in one sentence at the end of the introduction and is often called a thesis statement.

3. The body (or majority) of your paper should offer several premises that suggest the importance of this message. These premises, which support your claim, will be backed up by evidence (researched sources).

4. Some things to consider in the body of the paper when thinking about WHY this message is powerful:

a. Is this an “old” or historic media message that still receives attention today? If so, how does it still circulate in contemporary culture?

b. Is this a message that has crossed over into a different medium (say, a book that is now a film or TV show)?

c. Does this message have global/international appeal or interpretations?

d. Has this message been used for multiple purposes (i.e., has it had commercial value if it was not initially a commercial message)?

e. [Insert your own idea here!]

5. The conclusion should end with a strong summary of why this media message has been a powerful one. Well-structured conclusions restate the initial claim in some way and reconfirm why the points made in the body support the claim successfully. Finally, there should be an overall, deeper understanding shown than in the introduction.

The message that is being discussed is “Quit India” speech given by Mahatma Gandhi which was given on 8th August,1942 to launch a freedom movement against British and force them to leave the country. The speech was a powerful message for British to show non-corporation by Indian in the war and their demand of leaving the nation. (Gandhi,1942) This was also given to motivate Indians to fight for their desire of freedom without participating in violence. The major mode of media available to masses was print and radio
oadcast. Though many of the printing press were shut down by the British there were independent newspapers published by numerous printing press who were motivated to print to fight against the British imperialism. Though the movement was launched by Mahatma Gandhi and Vinoba Bhave, but the speech was given by him in Bombay Session of All-India Congress Committee at Gowalia Tank Maidan. The speech became popular as soon as it reached the ears of people as it resulted to immediate violence propagated by multiple a
est of leaders in various part of country. In the present scenario it is considered as legendary as it one of the major movements that
oke British confidence of continuing their control on Indian people and forced them to think about leaving the colonial state. The message as soon as it came to be known to people of India created a domino effect and followers all over the country started becoming part of the Quit India and Civil Disobedience movement which instigated the fight of independence all over the country.
