So many points, so little time! : Nov 15-21

1. So now the Congress MP's want BCCI to revoke the life long ban on Azharuddin! First of all, what was the need to suddenly bring up this topic? Is it because Azhar wants to get into an executive post, thereby mint more money, in the 2011 BCCI elections? Why are Congress MP's so concerned about the ban on this man? He was banned for throwing away matches at will, and now we just have to show mercy and lift the ban, so that he can make more money? Don't the MP's have better things to care about?

2. Imagine the following situation is any country. The government announces a particular policy on an agricultural product. Farmers are unhappy with the policy and protest against it. The Prime Minister of the country calls a meeting of senior ministers to discuss the issue. That group would inevitably include the Agricultural minister of the country. But not in India. Farmers held a huge protest in New Delhi this week, and the Agricultrual minister of the country, Mr. Sharad Pawar was nowhere to be seen. The PM
met with Home Minister, Finance Minister and Law Minister but not the Agricultural minister! The Agricultural minister also is the President of BCCI. Perhaps he was busy sorting out issues there. And yet no one in the media dare question this blatant absence by the minister. Because idhar sab kuch chalta hai :(

3. There is something very seriously wrong with Shiv Sena these days. The other day Bal Thackrey writes an editorial asking Sachin to just play cricket and not talk about politics. This was in response to Sachin's comment saying he is an Indian first, Maharastrian next. Quite expectedly, there was widespread anger from readers all over. Next, the Shiv Sena goes a step further and attacks the IBN-Lokmat office in Mumbai. How long do the goons of Shiv Sena think they can get away with such cheap and vulgar acts of violence? What really are they gaining by attacking offices of media? Despicable and deplorable are just small words to describe these mad acts. Plain disgusting. On a different note, I observed that while CNN-IBN was continously covering this story, the other news channels gave it a cursory mention! While the people unequivocally condemn any such acts of violence, the media houses shriek about freedom of press only when their houses are attacked. What stopped Sagarika Ghose from not going bonkers when other media houses were attacked in the past?

4. Jagan Mohan Reddy asked Rosaih why his father's promise of 9 hours power supply to farmers is not being implemented. Rosaih said that there are fund crunch issues and it might take a while before it is implemented. Then he says, why not scrap the Power GO no. 20 and bring back money from the private owners of power. CM calmy says, that GO was okayed by YSR himself. Howzzatt ?!

5. Rumours flew around that India submitted 7th Dossier to Pakistan regarding the Mumbai attacks. If true, then..well, yaawwnnn.

While I dont support the violence against media, I wonder 'to whom does media fear nowadays'. Everyone fears the media and media is the super power!! Can Media report anything they want even if it is not news and assume no one would dare to ado nything to them. We need laws to control media and unfortunately news is not news anymore. Its all views and paid news. As you said, Yaha sab kuch chalta hai, and that is what happened to IBN.
