Indian Media, Giving News Is Your Job, Not Influencing Public Opinion

Media.jpg

This is not something I have not already written about on my blog, or this topic is not even something that we, as viewers are unaware of. Then why am I bringing it up again? Because no matter how much we are aware of what the Indian Media is up to, the presstitutes make sure they reach a new low every day.

I have given up on news channels long back but my Mom tries to update herself every now and then by turning to a 24/7 news channel. There is still a generation that depends on Television News to deliver information to them as unfortunately, they neither can Google news and learn about the happenings around the world nor can they check Facebook to know what people are actively participating in these days. The latest “Breaking News” is Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai’s Shilpa Shinde’s case. As soon as the production house of the show and CINTAA joined hands, the way media changed the tone of news and subtly started convincing people that the one we should blame in the case is the actress is awful. From delivering a simple, plain story of the actress quitting the show to the media openly blaming the actress was not at all expected.

This took me back to the Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal’s days. Remember, how the media all of a sudden turned its back on Congress? Congress was suddenly turned into a villain. No, do not misunderstand me. I am not a Congress supporter but my point is where was this same media when the corruption was taking place all these years? Ohh yes, I forgot, the opposition might not have bribed them at that time. They started feeding the media when the elections came near and they had the body of work to promote themselves. A greener pasture of land and two happy bribed faces? I still remember how while other channels supported BJP and Mr. Modi, there was a channel that actually visited Gujarat and showed what the state’s real condition is. The story ran for a day or two and then vanished into thin air. Going back to the Anna Hazare and Mr. Kejriwal era… There were emails being circulated in the duo’s favor. As Congress was in power at that time, Anna and Kejriwal were heroes, common men who were fighting with corruption. Media was going gaga over them. They were not lesser than Gods. And then? A twist in the tale… BJP came into the limelight out of the blue.

When Arvind Kejriwal declared his own party, suddenly the world’s most compassionate, intelligent, selfless and patriotic people became dumbass and selfish. The media found a political agenda in the movement. As soon as the other leading party got a competitor who was stronger than them, the media was bribed to once again make people believe that the ones they were considering Gods are actually brainless demons who will do nothing more than turn their paradise upside down? If they were brainless since beginning and as made to believe if Anna Hazare was influenced by Kejriwal, why did media support them since the very beginning? Worshipping the rising sun, Indian Media?

Then a few months back, Hema Malini’s accident case was doing a round in the media where the actress’ speeding Mercedes dashed into a Maruti Alto in which a four-year-old was killed. For a while, it looked like media is finally fighting for justice. The last update on the TV channels about the news was that the family will now be thrown out of the hospital as they had no money to continue further treatment. Being a BJP MP and a wealthy individual who was also an alleged culprit in the case, the lady denied helping the family. The news which the media was devotedly following abruptly stopped.

Is it that the media brings the negative side of celebrities or politicians into light just to demand money and turn the tables for them by changing the angle of the story? Is influencing viewers so easy that the media is changing sides so frequently? In case, their reporters also get the news from unreliable sources and they are as clueless about the issues that they are showing on their channels as the common man is, don’t you think they should hire better staff?

It looks like India Media has completely forgotten the Journalism ethics and will always try its best to influence public opinion. Unfortunately, public voice is no more public’s.

What if I choose to ‘Not Marry’? What if I choose to ‘Not Reproduce’? What if I choose to ‘Adopt’?

What if I choose to ‘Not Marry’? What if I choose to ‘Not Reproduce’? What if I choose to ‘Adopt’?

They say, 20s is the right age to get married. Right age? But what if I do not get a right person at the right age? What if I get the wrong person at the right age and right person in the wrong age? Wrong Age? Is there really a wrong age to marry? If not, then how can there be ‘Right Age?’

When they say, right age to marry, do they mean – Right age to Reproduce? If I marry in my late 30s or 40s, as a woman my body will not be strong enough to carry and deliver a baby. But then another question arises – Do they marry only with the sole purpose to ‘Manufacture’ Babies? If no, then what the hell do they mean when they say, ‘MARRY AT THE RIGHT AGE’?

We were once having a discussion about Marriage in office. To my comment, marry only if you get the right person, a girl who married very young said, ‘I have seen people who die alone when they get old. I don’t want to die alone’. This was her reason for getting married. Does marriage guarantee no loneliness? If yes, then why do people wait for death in old age homes? Why doesn’t each one of us die in our partner’s arms? If it’s about company, then let me tell you that there are couples who live under one roof but do not even like to see each other’s faces. Then there are also cases where accidents have killed the whole family leaving just one of the partners behind. Then why marry at the right age? Why have babies just because your body can create babies when there is no right person in your life? For security? The best thing about this modern world is – we can all stand on our own two feet and make ourselves secure. For love? I think only and only our parents love us unconditionally and if that love isn’t enough for us, then no love can ever make us feel good. For Sex? This can be the very reason atleast in India, as the society still believes that Marriage and Sex being Sacred go hand-in-hand. To shed some light on reality, we all know this is not the case anymore. Then again the question pops up – Why Marry at the Right Age? Why if you have no partner in your life at the right age, people go crazy looking for the one and settle down with almost anyone who can offer you financial security – because they are afraid after a particular age, one will have to settle down with a widower, a divorcee, an aunty or a baldy. How can such a forced relationship be sacred people? How can such a relationship bring love and emotional security? What are the chances of sustenance here?

Marry only when you find the right person. Marry only the one with whom you can connect – on intellectual and emotional level. There is no right or wrong age to find a person with whom you can enjoy, not just the highs but also the lows of life. What is the use when during the lows you think of the rishta you rejected for this person? Talking about having kids, do you really think we need to torture this earth with more population? Do you really think you want one more life to see the horrifying side of humanity where humans are killing humans? There are babies lying in orphanages and then there are babies living with the dogs on the streets, they need a home too. How about just breaking the code for a while and live a life where life would truly be beautiful? Why complicate it for no particular reason? Being married, having kids is beautiful; but let’s use some logic and live a sensible life. Let’s not just follow the generation we have been disagreeing with since we were born. We were born to change the society. Let’s not become a part of it.

The World should have ended long back

The World should have ended long back

The World should have ended long back
This is not God’s land
Human beings are slaughtered
Not even kids are spared
On the name of God?
That piece of rock never spoke
He will never speak
Till these eyes shut forever
If there is hell
It is here
It exists right here on earth
The World should have ended long back
Women,
Portrayed as a goddess
Are raped and killed
Even before they are born
Every now and then
If there is hell
It exists right here on earth
There are babies dying of hunger
Begging on the roads for a penny or two
And then there are fools
Who poop on pots made of pure gold
The World should have ended long back
This is not God’s land

Should Men be Blamed For Rape?

BtS_Web_Banner_580x270
Women, let’s fight for equality, not superiority. Let’s fight against sexual abuse, not men. Rape is not something only women face. Men too are assaulted sexually. At times, there are women abusers as well. Don’t you think it’s time we fight against this mentality? The crime as a whole?

Rape has been a part of our society since ancient times. We are just glamorizing it today. Has creating the buzz helped us anyways? No! Looks like things are worsening. Media rapes every other victim thousands of times for the eyeballs. It’s time that we stand together against the crime and not against each other. Not all men are rapists, and not all women are victims.

EMPOWERMENT OF CYNICISM AND RAPE CULTURE

self-defense350

I don’t know if there is something seriously wrong with Indian Men or Men in general? Yesterday there was this story trending on the internet where a rapist was blaming the victim for getting killed. As per his logic, the victim should not have fought back – Just allow them to rape her and then they would have let her go. To add to this… I don’t know what do I even call it – If I use a swear word, I would be insulting it. Don’t you feel so? The man has the guts to say if you start hanging the rapist, then atleast now we leave the girl alive, but we will have to kill her so that we are safe.

And today? Today I read this another news on Social Media that reads, ‘Hindus-should-rape-dead-muslim-women’. I mean what kind of society are we living in? Is there nothing left with us than sex and hatred? And why whatever the topic is – the conclusion is RAPE THE WOMAN?  Who the hell has given you the right to rape the girl you bastard? If your dick is going crazy and you can’t handle it, cut it off! If it’s too painful, the girls can chop it off for you! That’s the only way you will understand what and how it feels when someone’s torturing your private parts.

Why is this cynicism spreading so widely? Why is the Indian Man so “SEX ORIENTED?” Or is it that just the psycho lot is getting more powerful? Looks like it… What can we expect other than the “EMPOWERMENT OF CYNICISM AND RAPE CULTURE” in this country when our leaders shamelessly say, ‘Ladke Hai Galti Ho Jaati Hai”. I wonder what would the minister do when the same rapist rapes his daughter? He will get busy analyzing what his daughter was wearing that day I guess.

Sexual Harassment was something we were already facing daily. We go out for work and then there are men whose hands are always slipping – on our shoulder, on our waist, on our thighs – or whatever they feel like holding at the moment. We anyways get out of the house to satisfy their ever increasing sexual needs, isn’t it? Your dick is facing erection while traveling in the bus sir? Yea you can rub it against my shoulder (in case I am sitting and you are standing) or my waist? (in case I am standing as well) – that’s what I am travelling for. Your hands are too itchy? Ohhhh God has given me breasts so that you can squeeze them anytime anywhere.

WAIT! If this is what you think of us – the object of your desire then wait. Wait now! Sexual harassment and always thinking about safety even when at work, travelling or at home isn’t happening. I see only and only one solution now! We are already rotting in hell… Get molested, raped and then prove that we have been raped… In a way where we feel as if multiple people are raping us again and again just to check if you have really raped me…. And then wait for the verdict till we die. Why not we just finish you bastards just for attempting such things to us? We will atleast not feel YUCK about ourselves. We will be proud of killing a rapist and saving god knows how many girls who you were supposed to rape in future and feel proud about being a Man?
