Re: Gail Omvedt comparing coverage of Mumbai terror attack with Orissa
I like your stand of viewing everything 'apparently' from a distance. But , the objectivity seems lost. You said the media were lazy in Mumbai. Are you sure of your statement ? the media was over active, in fact hyperactive and hysterical. They were craving for any scoop in that scenario, and even if it helped the Terrorists, they did not bother and broadcast bits and pieces of whatever relevance.
You said the media spares space to brahminical forces ( I want a discussion on brahmanical and brahminical forces). It is the political drilling that grinds the citizen that has also taken hold of you. Here's a simple test. Take the newspaers for a week at a stretch in the last year. Go through every section. What do you find ?
You will find Sonia smiling on at least two pages. Lalu with Holi powders on and applying on his wife will adorn another. Ram Vilas Paswan will be in another. Arjun singh, Deve Gowda, karunanidhi, Mulayam , Mayavati, Ambika Soni, TR Balu, etc. . (Oh have I forgot Manmohan ? He seems too irrelevant in this scenario. ).Count a brahmin among them.
