Every noon during lunch we end up sitting in front of the television and for the whole duration of 15-20 minutes break , television keeps flashing breaking news with the same visuals.
If you could pause for a moment and analysis the kind of news we are seeing. You may conclude ,there is no substance but only sensationalised screams and screeches.
Any debate is nothing to do with addressing a problem but only correlating it to the past events and exchanging series of accusations.
Yes we understand the curse of capitalism and KPI of TRPs and combination of these two ,makes news distasteful.
I sometimes wonder, is there so much of chaos out there or becomes more chaotic within ourselves and in world as we watch the news.
If one had to count the events of stress, then there is refugee crisis, Syria crisis, Afghan crisis, bombs explosions in some part of world, shooting instances in US, rape instances in India and other countless instances, where human life is not spared.
Now I understand the effect of information overload, best were the days without satellite channels and Internet.
A colleague of mine said , the best news channel is Doordarshan, they report and not create.
Are today’s new channels the newest Porn of our era?
