Golden Jubilee Eminent Citizen Award of the Rotary Club of Madras North was conferred on N. Ram, chairman, The Hindu Group of Publications at golden jubilee celebrations held on Sunday.

Rotarian Suresh Krishn, managing director, Isha Homes, was conferred with the Most Valuable Rotarian of the Club award. Barry Rassin, Rotary International president, Basker Chockalingam, Rotary International director, and others addressed.

In his address at the celebrations, Ram stated that corruption has affected news media and journalism as well. Unless those in the field recognise this, we will only be pointing fingers at others and will not be able to clean up the profession of journalism.

He said: "Defence and promotion of fundamental right of freedom of speech and expression must be taken up by all citizens as a top national priority. Having said that it goes without saying that freedom comes with social responsibility and this applies to the press and other news media as much as it does to every citizen."
