Aam Aadmi and Media

Barkha Dutt flew to Cairo to air the views of Egyptian protesters.
  • Why was she not interested in airing the viewers of the Delhi protesters? 
  • Have you ever seen a worker, a coolie or a tiller on the panels in the air-conditioned studios of the channels?
  • Why is Pronoy Roy not interested in knowing a poor Vidarbha farmer’s expectations about the next budget? After all he is also an Indian citizen with aspirations.
The poor constitute a majority of India’s population. Shame on the prisoners of corporate money for whom their livelihood issues are non-issues!

Barkha Dutt is not the lone culprit. Even the comman man does not show interest in local issues and problems.

We could see such charactors everywhere in this country. They will not bother about the day to day problems of their own household. But, they would give expert opinions for the solution of national problems.

They will not care for their parents. But they shed tears for the farmers of Maharashtra.

They will not pay any attention to the blocking sewage in their neighbourhood. But they will agitate for global warming and climate change.

They will not show any affection to their subordinates. But they will make lofty comments over the declining sex ratio.

And the list could go on and on.
