Abstract:
Heritage is cherished and nourished due to its social, economic, political, cultural and identity values. Due to these value additions, often heritage is contested. Many times that contestation leads to social unrest, violence, death and destruction and even legal hassles also. A sustainable cultural resource management could act as a deterrent to such problems. Therefore, one of the major objectives of cultural resource management is the public awareness about heritage. Media could achieve that objective in its various forms. However, that is not the only objective of the media. Media can influence and sway public opinion, pressurize public authorities to speak and act responsibly and also sensitize people for activism on myriads of public interest issues including heritage. Heritage and media are comprehensive disciplines. Although a lot of research works have been done in both the disciplines, i.e. heritage and media independently, academic works on their inter-relationships are very few. The present study makes a humble effort to explore that inter-relationship in the context of one of the contested built heritages of Delhi. The research will be mostly based on the primary sources, i.e. content analysis of the reviewed built heritage stories in the print media of Delhi.
