Re: INDIA: Movement of Professionals Against Corruption and for Transparency
I think you are absolutely right. It is a collective responsibility that we have. A peculiar lassitude and inertia is being witnessed in our country for the last two decades or so. We have become insensitive to the sufferings of our own countrymen. Ten people being killed is nothing, there must be at least hundred to hit the headlines. The mainstream press tended always to sensationalize matters and gllefully reported etnic violence in the most imprudent and impolitic ways. In a multi cultural and pluralistic ethos such as ours one has to be tactful in reporting on matters pertaining to communal or ethnic clashes.The media was, and still is very tactless and egregiously 'divisive', on reporting on such matters.
