Abstract: Through this research paper, the researcher wishes to highlight the role of media in creating an
awareness of the ill effects of bio-piracy on our country and how Media can help in making the
citizens alert of the situation. We need to have alert and cautious citizens to keep an eye on the
actions of these developed nations who are reaping the benefits of our age-old traditional
knowledge and taking advantage of our ignorance on the matter. Spreading awareness on the
issue can help us in making our citizens alert and aware of their social customs and traditional
knowledge and it can go a long way in curbing Bio-piracy in India. But as the saying goes, 'A
hen never knows how valuable her egg is until someone snatches it away.' The good thing about
Bio-piracy is that, because of it, today we are making an effort to go back to our roots, which we
had long back left behind or almost forgotten, in our craze for development and progress.
