  • Dr. T. Padmanabhan, Chinju S


Indian society has broadly experienced the characteristics of new media, it enabled new ways of the communication process, and its convergence with people’ deliberation on cultural, social and political life encompasses Indian polity based on a harmonious and an ersatz dynamism. Later, new media cut across the frontiers, and a crescendo of socio-political mobilization and movement participation reverberated in the dynamics of Indian polity.  Indeed, the year 2011 and after, India witnessed some massive demonstrations and protests such as anti-corruption, against genocide, and women’s empowerment by the people irrespective of class and divisions covering the entire nation on peaceful and democratic measures. Predominantly, the movement against corruption made an influence on the change of Indian polity. Unquestionably, the mainstream media played a crucial role in this massive movement. On the other hand, the nature of Facebook platforms influenced the masses, particularly in their thinking and self-managerial process. It was used as an effective communication tool during the demonstrations and aided for rigorous movement participation and mass mobilization in offline plus online in India. Further, the movements at the summit had experienced constructively, which the concept of the old theories of resource mobilization and political process approaches. Hence, the researcher examined the combination of these two theories, along with the empirical evidence and secondary data through an ex-post-facto’ factorial research design.
