Media vs Media

Filed under: Miscellaneous — Tags: , , , , , — nitin @ 3:56 am

A vibrant media is a sign of a progressing democracy.It reflects the true picture of the state and helps people identify and relate with day to day problems and progress of the state.However, it’s a sad tale for Indian media which not only blows things out of proportion, but also acts as a catalyst for spreading wide spread hatred and disturbing the peace of the nation.

Sensitive issues are made “Masala episodes”. Too much and tooo many examples can be cited for this truth and allegation ūüôā . At times, I desire to cut throat of some of these reporter’s or hang or smother the 24*7 news channel Director’s to death for their cheap language and disgusting news .¬† My anger and frustration is well justified and it must be the same for many others.The latest fucking point which I will narrate is related to RAJ vs Rahul episode.

This is something observed for the first time where(for me at least) Indian media gets divided on language and region.The “North Indian channels” are portraying “Raj Thackeray” as the mother of all problems and raising questions over the encounter of the so called” Innocent terrorist”. Rahul, the guy who terrified the Mumbai BEST passenger’s with his lovely country made revolver is no more alive and
political parties are battling it out for his cause of death. They¬† are making aggravated comments and Bihar is getting heated up.The guy wanted to have a conversation with RAJ and therefore he hijacked the BEST bus and fired 3 rounds of bullet ,¬† which cannot be justified on any account.The police reaction can be justified and more information will be out when CID officials will try to peek their nose in other state matters¬† .Mr Nitish Kumar claims that he was not terrorist and he had a clean record.I ask “where was that fucking time to go to his history ? Should the Police have waited for someone to become his victim? and any man with a gun is not a saint. This act gives strong message and¬† lesson to all those who create law and order problems. RR Patil has backed the Mumbai Police and therefore, there is mounting tension betweens leaders from the north and west of India.

The Story from AAj TAK..( the most hated channel): They have flashed TV screens with details of Nitish Kumar, Lalu and Paswan’s converstation with the PM of India.Inummerable questions are raised over Mumbai police’s execution of Rahul. RR Patil¬† has responded to the north Indian ministers with a wacky reply.But this is not shown or heard for common public on these channels.

The Story from Marathi/Mumbai channels:(Sahara TV, Zee marathi):These channels are showing the story from the Mumbai police perspective.It’s focussing on how and why Mumbai Police carried out this operation.Some MNS activist were interviewed. MNS side of the story is told and the overall look and feel is exactly opposite to the one shown on channels like NDTV,Aaj Tak.

To conclude, these channels are biased and no one is trying to show both the sides of the coin.The exact nature of truth or the real picture is missing from both these channels.They are bind by their ideologies and pressure. However , I found that AAj TAK and NDTV are the giving the wrong picture and trying to run a parallel case for Rahul’s case.They are trying to prove his innocence and targeting the Mumbai police. If Media trials becomes the fashion and it does happens, then why the fuck we need court rooms and judiciary ? . It’s time for every citizen of India to analyze the news channels and don’t go by the flow of the hour.They all have hidden agenda and dirty politics behind every news read.Trying to view the news from every angle is the job left to us. For the common man , if the news is crude like “crude oil”¬† it may act as a catalyst for hatred and discomfort. “Distillation” of news is the need of the hour.

John – Bipasha and Indian Media

Filed under: celebrities, India, my views, News — Tags: , , — nitin @ 8:01 pm

Today,I had everytime to browse through news channels and get  some dose of news and current happenings in india and around the globe..

I kept on browsing¬†channels ….finally landed on some sensational story on¬† John and Bipasha..

Nowadays our news channels have no other thing to show other than¬†blowing off¬†celebrities personal life…

They host a complete show on how the relationship was -is-would be¬† in the near future¬† among the lovely¬†couple .Every attempt is made for adding¬† masala to indian idiot box ..because the notion is There is a considerable audience for such stuffs…it sells…”
There was some press conference in which Bipasha was made to reveal abt her relationship status with John Abraham..

For hell sake why should she reveal it?
What is the interest of public in such personal affairs..?

Why dont our media keep out of sensationalizing evey news at hand.Such news could very well find its place in¬†film magazines ..why on TV, the media is begging ..asking Bips to reveal abt her relationship..Don’t they have any personal life?Atleast don’t force someone to reveal about their personal life…its none of our buisness!

Why am i feeling so frustated? Because one can only understand the pain when ..you consider yourself in their shoes.Also its damn illlogical…

I think ..we need vigilent media for our corrupt democracy which does it part my carrying out Sting operations and similar stuffs..but at the same time ,keeping out of blowing off personal affairs.

Bips has rightly said”Its¬† nothing to be disclosed to the media..You can make watever stories you want to make abt me.”

This is called organised personal torture…

Sunita william’s Syndrome

Filed under: India, My Experience, my views, News — Tags: , , , — nitin @ 8:14 am

Me and my roomie were having a conversation one morning,just casual.Then we heard in the radio abt sunit’a safe landling and her thanking to all the indians..who were lighting candles,doing “pooja”,praying and maybe sacrificing some animal just for her safe return.¬†

I asked my friend “why is there so much hype arnd her”, after all she’s an American and we have no contribution in her success, we are not in any way responsible for her achievment except the fact that she is of indian origin”.

I never heard of her.I didnt knew if she existed and no one else.she has an indian name “sunita” thats it.she even has an American accent.
what have we(indians) contributed to her success?
why the news channels,media and people of indian try to grab every opportunity to show how grt we are,by showing how she was an indian .we shudn’t take her success in our belt.

The news channels had shown sunita’s home,her dog..her relatives ..what school she went ..what toothpaste she used ..and wat not..etc..why the hell??

As if she went from india …went from ISRO (Indian Space Research organisation)…gaining all the knowledge from Indian Universities..
she’s just indian by her origin.Don’t count her achievment as our achievment..We should not take any credit …bcos there is remotely any thing india has done or contributed to her success.

What have we done for our women to reach the heights acheived by sunita in America.Our 24 hrs news channels are again a pain in the ass.First they blow the thing out of proportion and again realising the mistake made..open a debate as to why are we wooing her.Utterly shameful and stupid act by the Indian media.

Bcos of some Such news channels and some crazy indians who are blindly glorifying Sunita success story , shows how we are behave like a third grade colonised defeated people and also our inferiority complex;which is certainly not the case.

I congratulate Sunita for her marvellous feat of achievment.Still its the Americans who should take her victory as their country’s victory.America is a country where she got the opportunity to excel.America is the country where our students run’s for Higher Education.

India has and had tremendous potential and no doubts regarding that.We are what we are…regardless of what the west does or will do.We have our own achievments which doesn’t need any pat from Uncle SAM.
So we shud stop looking for our achievments outside india unless it is genuine.
