What is the “media” in India? Here is what the latest survey data tells us

Even a couple of decades ago owning a TV set was considered to be a status symbol in India. Not anymore. 25 years after economic reforms, more people watch TV than those who read newspapers or listen to the radio. More than 70% women and men watch TV at least once a week. The numbers are much lower for both newspapers and radio. These figures come from the fourth round of the National Family Health Survey (NFHS), which was conducted in 2015–16.

What a Shortcode is

Hugo loves Markdown because of its simple content format, but there are times when Markdown falls short. Often, content authors are forced to add raw HTML (e.g., video <iframes>) to Markdown content. We think this contradicts the beautiful simplicity of Markdown’s syntax.

Hugo created shortcodes to circumvent these limitations.

A shortcode is a simple snippet inside a content file that Hugo will render using a predefined template. Note that shortcodes will not work in template files. If you need the type of drop-in functionality that shortcodes provide but in a template, you most likely want a [partial template][partials] instead.

In addition to cleaner Markdown, shortcodes can be updated any time to reflect new classes, techniques, or standards. At the point of site generation, Hugo shortcodes will easily merge in your changes. You avoid a possibly complicated search and replace operation.
