Media exposes or exploits?

Source of Information : Media

When people claim that they are being secured by a democratic system , I am still in doubt of whether monarchy would be a better option. Someone said that democrats often hesitate in voicing their opinion because of the influence of money. With the Tehelka exposing the naked truths of the Gujrat carnage, people are still trapped in a tumult atmosphere. With Modi under fire and Bajrungi under threats, looks like India is shaping up well. What made Bajrungi speak? That too at a point when the Musilms were exchanging their Eid delicacies with the Diwali sweets.Tehelka openly said that their quest for truth were not intended to arouse an war in the next elections but to revive the essence of human rights. We actually needed Tehelka to remind us of our rights . Shame.

'Practice what you preach'-Seven bollywood actors under cop scanner and actors were having a jolly time playing a match organised by the underworld.They are the stars we idealise , admire, to some extent even follow their footsteps.And since Bollywood promotes social welfare, should definately make it a point to avoid scandals because public is their strength and fear- the beginning of their lives and the end of their destiny. For the Bachans Rs. 170000 room for the bahu's birthday bash is hardly the amount required for their gardening.But I guess they had to pay off a lot of bills at the Taj because when they were questioned by the Tax Department on ofcourse non-payment of tax Big B was spell bound.Looks like Big B's all set to play black from reel to real.

P.S. Happy Diwali :)

A very good post questioning a lot of things around us!
Around 60 years ago, a feeling which was subdued by amicability was roused by the partitioning of India and Pakistan into religion-driven countries. All this while I had a feeling that India has been the better half, avoiding riots as far as possible. With the details of this Gujarat riots being exposed by Tehelka, I am starting to lose faith!
And coming to the stars, India should start emerging as an educated country where people "like" movies and stars but dont start worshipping them. Enough of star worship!!!!! Who really cares what happens to stars? How many people cared for those who were killed by the Delhi blueline buses?
It's a shame!!!!!

Is it not a known fact very few in real bollywood is out of the clutches of uderground mafia ?
So much of their black money is utilised in film industry to make it white.

In a way the common man is more responsable for making these rascals to dress them as 'Idols'.

ananth: theoritically to stop worshipping stars may have an impact on a readers mind but practically it's going to be hard.

Ananth said...

Yes Neha, but I feel it is going to be as hard as educating the majority of the population. What say you?

Neha Nair said...
