Communication can roughly de described as the exchange of information between two or more agents though a medium using a predetermined code. Of course we are oversimplifying things, aren’t we? If you care to stop by and think critically, a thousand questions pop up which, if let go unfettered, will capsize the vessel of conventional wisdom without warning. This, by no means, is unique: most definitions/descriptions in social sciences do not stand up to a rigorous critical examination. This, to be sure, is neither a defect not a cause of embarrassment. If definitions are defied, the subject is to too vast and deep and complex.

As time marches on the nature of communications undergoes sea changes that nobody can predict. You may not be able to visualize a world without telephones or the internet. But in relation to the history of the worlds, these gizmos are still toddling! Has any one been able to predict the giant leaps in information and communication technology that practically define the present world? The answer is an emphatic no. Not long ago, we lived without the facilities we wallow in today. These gadgets, understandably, redefine the very process and nature of communication. One example that suggests itself is television, and though in a lesser degree, radio. Until recently, some of us would not include telivisual discourses in the rubric of communication, bracketing it as a one-way traffic. Will this objection hold water in an age where we can actually strike up conversations with persons on the blinking mini screen? How about internet chat? This is the bottom line: don’t get stuck in predefined categories and ideas. As a most vital component in teaching and research, the new avenues and openings in communications are of great interest to us. To start you off, we are giving five questions. They are general in nature and light in content.
