[Tex/LaTex] Command : \noindent not working


I'm want a simple paragraph in my document with no indentation. I'm using the command \noindent at the beginning of the paragraph, But its not working. Here's the code I'm using

\paragraph{Para \\}
Blah blah blah ...

enter image description here

Can anybody tell me why its not working. I'm using 'Texworks'

The image you show is not generated by posted code, in article class \paragraph is an inline heading so produces

Para Blah blah

The word Para is not indented so it is hard to guess what effect you intended \noindent to have. Note that \paragraph is a section head and should only be used in the sequence \section, \subsection, \subsubsection, \paragraph. \noindent should rarely (arguably never) be used within the document and certainly never applied to a heading.

If you want to redefine \paragraph to be a display heading rather than inline, then

                                    {-3.25ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}%


Blah blah blah ...

but as noted above \paragraph should only follow \subsubsection
