how to process on_message callback?

how do I interpret the kite.on_message callback? What is it exactly and what is it useful for? I tried checking on this forum and it indicates that this is some 'raw data' returned by the server whenever there is a tick or order processed by the websocket, but it's not clear to me how I would use this in live trading.

So can I safely ignore on_message and trade just based on the on_ticks and on_order_update callbacks?

@sujith @rakeshr @MAG @Matti @tonystark et al - any thoughts?

I tried capturing on_message data in redis but got some weird values. am I just not processing the format correctly?
One example is below:
