This is no laughing matter; with regards to the media, it’s purported freedom and the massive censoring in publications. No wonder, it has not become a larger issue because everyone fears that it’s utility would be questioned.
I have ranted here enough, cried hoarse over the “interest” of media in Broadband issues. Even when they take it up (in the past few years), they have made a mess of the whole thing and situation. There is no sustained campaign. No sustained interest. Scams after scams are being generated to deflect public attention and all the while Broadband or issues related to it would be relegated to background.
I have tried, on several occasions to tie up with some media house, even write in a column free of cost, just to make the voice heard. Yet, they persist with inane shit about “controversies” with reams of newsprint being focused only on the “affairs” or the crap Page 3 shit. Serious issues about competitiveness and lack of ICT initiatives (or even a discussion on it) is beyond reach.
Why? Why? Why? Why is the country fucking hostage to overgrown old idiots in TRAI with enlarged prostates? Those idiots would be content in having a rectal massage than doing something concrete. Or for that matter the fucking cobwebbed idiots stinking and rotting in their own fucking excrete in Sanchar Bhawan (or BSNL/MTNL) totally fucking devoid of any imagination to progress further than what they have.
It’s hard to imagine the glacial pace of work; now media as the “fourth pillar of democracy” has also seriously eroded. It was always alleged but this is more of a direct proof of their involvement. The worse, well, is not yet over. Barkha Dutt is being ripped apart on Twitter, blogs and everywhere; evidently no one likes her.
