Watching News is distressful .

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?

From Jungle :- Save our Tigers.

Its sunday , I was having my brunch and watching the news in the dinning hall of the hotel. I have been seeing , news items in the television about saving our tigers and posters on the walls . Our cricket team captain  Mahinder singh Dohni  and Mr.Amitabh Bachan  are the voice of the campaign . The telecom service provider Aircel and NDTV  is also part of this very important initiative. “Saving tigers ” seems cool. This whole initiative has bought a lot of people on board ,including our Prime Minister ,Dr. Manhmohan singh as well , besides other known personalities , who have shared there concerns.Since I had been a law student , I do remember some of the acts /laws made for protection of the widelife , like this act Indian wildlife protection act of 1972 , and this must be one of the laws.  I have grown up in the urban part of India . And to my knowledge there were not even parks to play for us . And always had a hard time to get back the ball , if it landed in the wrong house . In my entire life I have been just to one  wildlife sanctuary , in a van along with lot of other people with a guard ( who had a gun). Lets save our “Tigers”, but from whom? Ofcourse the poachers,who esle? There was another news item on the news channel , somewhere in TN , the guards of the sanctuary ( where tigers are present) had spears and arrows , to save what I am not sure? Though I am not much of wildlife lover, but I do mistakenly watch discovery channel and how the wildlife is saved. The integration of technology , is essential  to save these extincting species. The animals are kept track by using GPS devices, which are inserted in them .To be honest we urban India have nothing to do with saving tigers except intellectualize about the issue and create content for the television. The real issues  is to investment in preserving the wildlife as a whole and not just the tigers.  To create funds for educating , training , sharing , integrating technology for people with whom rest the responsibilities  of these sanctuaries. If I remember a case against Mr. Pataudi ( ex- crickter) , was let free ,against whom there was a case of poaching of a black buck.t is presumably villagers and the Royals , who poach animals . I am not sure , can we educate the Royals. Lets try with villagers ( pessimistically ) . I remember  the campagin of  ” Chota parivar sukhi  parivar ” ( samll family a family) and ” Hum Do ,Humarie Do” ( We two and ours two) and yet we are the second most populated country in the world.” We bloody humans”( Indians). Last but not least I have no guns at home and neither do I know how to set up booby traps  and I stay hundreds of Kms away from wildlife.And yet to try my hands on arrow and bow .

Note:- Poaching as I know (To take or appropriate something unfairly or illegally.) like talented manpower from one organization to other for better compensation, flashy offices  and  fancy designations , of course.

 

I wish I was Lalit Modi

Damn ,Lalit Modi.

I have decided not to watch the news channel anymore. Its  all about  Lalit Modi, Lalit Modi and Lalit Modi alone.
The allegations about Modi are yet to be proved. But Modi

1. Has become a household name in last few days. The young politicans will take atleast a decade to become house hold
name. There is a lesson to be learned.

2. He has emerged as Marketing Guru . He is been on the front page of Business Magazines .

3. Everyone is talking about him , the news channel to friends.  I was having talk with few friends and the reaction was 
quite normal. If at all Mr. Modi has misused his power to amass “huge wealth” is quite normal. What an approach we have
towards the ethos? On the otherside , who is not corrupt , The politicians, the babus, the doctors ,sportsmen and  the
policewala? If at all Mr. Modi is corrupt ,then what is wrong. The corrupt politicians and criminal politicians do still contest
and still rule ,then why not Mr. Modi, then [If allegations are proved]

4. Who says its wrong to work as an cartel ? what is G-8 or G-7 or OPEC or Drug Lords or Business Corporations across
the world or Religious organizations . Who does not have conflict of interest? Be it the politicians or people who are part
of BCCI it self. Do we share the cake with strangers ,when we have plenty of friends .

5. I saw on the NDTV the IPL scam is getting more coverage then PM official visit to USA. Well then the question what
kind ofcoverage did IPL get in USA before the scam. Could Newspaper or News channels “sensationalize ”  the Pre IPL  hit
with ” so called scam”

6.The new hindi movie called ” Badmaash company”,yet to be released, the lead actor says to make money all you need is
a ” Big idea” and Lalit Modi did find one. Which one you better think?

7. Is this the song Lalit Modi singing these days.

Beparwah ho gaye hain, behaya ho gaye hain
Befikrey ho gaye hain hum (bad boy)

Hum pe yaara jach rahi hai ye ayaashi hey ayaashi
Lat si lagi hai yeh ayaashi, bandhgi hai yeh ayaashi

OR

Jahan bhi jaye ek spotlight upar ho
Sensex niche phir bhi hum upar ho
007 James Bond wali ghadi ho
USA mein dus baaran kothian padi ho

One day jacuzzi wale do teen hotel ho
Apne bhi naam ki beer ki bottle ho
One day versace ka wardrobe total ho
Foreign ki ladki par rate yaar local ho

Note:- The lyrics of the movie Badmaash Company, A Yash Raj Chopra Film. To be released.

8.Lastly the media invented new term ” IPL gate” . With key words Scam, Controversy , Overshadowed, Benami ownership,Money laundering and list goes on.My ears and eyes are on vacation until this “thing” ends.  And media needs scams or stings operations and I think god heard the media. Mr. Modi ,what if you had used your tongue more diligently then I would not have sat here and blogged about you ,putting on hold my bowl motion.

I admire Mr. Modi  despite either way may his “Yatch/private plane ” [newly acquired] sail/fly. For creating an brand IPL.

Facilitation is a noble cause. After all it is a help extented. Why is everyone  hand doka peecha of Modi. We have one or

other time used facilitation.  Flash Back, recall.

I wish I was Lalit Modi. Without any constipation of course. I already suffer with.
