What is truth -

They are both electromagnetic waves with the same properties. The only difference from what we normally detects with radios, TVs etc is the frequency. Light waves have very high frequency. Our eyes, cameras, photodetectors etc is  "receivers" detecting these high frequencies of light waves - as radios detect waves of lower frequencies.
