Marup, an Ethnic Minority Newspaper of Tripura: A Journey to Ethnic Society Revivalism
Marup is a Manipuri Â weekly newspaper published from Agartala and widely read among Â the Manipuri people residing in Assam, Tripura and Bangladesh. Some of the functions of ethnic minority media are to preserve minority peopleâ€™s cultural identity and language; bring community cohesion and act as a mouthpiece for the minority to the government or the authority. The study has found Â that Marup Â possess the characteristics Â of a literary-cultural newspaper, rather than focusing its contents on socio-political issues which a mainstream newspaper usually does. This newspaper is redefining the normative structure of an ethnic minority media in the midst of a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic state of Tripura, India.
