Frontpage news

Maoist incident at Dantewada happened on 6th April 2010. Sania Mirza & Shoaib Malik drama was going on at around that time, and was given full national importance even after their marriage on 12th April 2010. In the mean time, Lalit Modi / Sashi Tharoor / Sunanda Pushkar / IPL took centrestage.

Is that how it's going to be? It will take only a few days to remove an incident like Dantewada from public eyes by replacing them with gossips and money laundering + glamor + power abuse news? Wonder if 84 people were killed (that's the last count of Dantewada that I got) by foreign terrorists, what the reaction of the media (and public) would have been!

I have a theory actually...

A normal person in India usually works for about 10 hours + a 2hr travel time...1/2 a day is gone..plus the heat dust...sometimes family takes its toll in the senses...and the he\she watches TV for pure entertainment...News as we all knew has changed to pure entertainment...

I hate to say this but the irony of life is...death ends it all and it still goes on!

At least three full pages of the newspaper is dedicated to the IPL drama now-a-days. Yesterday's paper had a detailed account of how Sherlyn Chopra and Chris Gayle were dancing at a post-match party!In the process,the more important issues troubling India are overlooked...
