Re: [IAC#RG] Sorry state of media in India

Respected Sirs,
I watched an interview of this Kanahiya ji on cnnibn yesterday.
Kanahiya ji had a glazed look and very ably answered each question with another question.

He kept repeating that he is from poor family and he is only a student.
To the extent he roped in the anchor and said he is fighting this 'azadi ladai'for the anchor,and anchor's azadi!!

In his release speech kanahiya seemed to be surrounded by lot of grown up faces who were laughing at every predecided pause.

Is there some age limit for these studies which are subsidized by grants from our tax money?

High time we do away with quotas and subsidies.

Let there be level playing field for all youth and let Merit decide.

Thankyou Respected Shri Diwanji for putting your point.

With Regards to All.

Very sad caption indeed ! Friends this cannot happen overnight, but just compare those days of scams after scams, public money were looted by those who pretend to be the holy cows and most honest. 
Let us give some fair time, not 65 years of our national man-hours and to the brink of destroying everything we have, in that there are a good number of media personnel, celebrity or otherwise, who could influence public opinion by incorrect and near people b

Dear All,

Irreversible damage in absence of forensics report of videos as feared by Diwan Singh ji is the bottom line.

After Patel Reservation demand this Jat Reservation death toll is of 30 lives with more then 30,000 crore of property is turned into ash. Goondas belonging to no community enjoy the free loot.

When we follow the herd unwillingly we take a weak position of comfort with silence.

This is happening again and again as a scripted soap serial and need to be stopped.

People are driven hard by a herd mentality charged up by false videos announcing `Pakistan Zindabad`.

For `stand alone` there is no choice either to remain silent supporters for self survival or stand with them in the mob of goondas or prmote the kill in the social media as no one wants to be with Pakistan even in dreams.

We need to collectively protect this old culture of peace and trust with new outlook otherwise the politicians shall re-use this serial to divert public attention and grab more profit for their masters.

Tribune planted a false story on gangrape, and for 5 days media ran back to back coverage on gangrape by jats during agitation. 
Just wonder- no victim, no evidence, no FIR- but media is going gangbang after a single community.
Though there is no principle of collective punishment in our constitution- the people of this community were continually shamed for what they never did. 

Just like the government divide the society by playing one community against another, media too do it skillfully by mass character assassination.
