The "More Equal" One

As I watch NDTV/CNN-IBN & Other So called "Better Channels" in the mess of News channels on My TV, one things that comes to my mind. Is it their owner's personal agenda that the channels carry? Are the views aired on the channels concocted?

Lets look at the Example one by one.

1. Discussion on Varun Gandhi- Ravish Kumar to a BJP Spokesperson "Just Answer the question- Why dont u pronounce VG Guilty? After all he has given hate speech!! Spokesperson- "Are u/me the one who would pronounce VG Guilty? We say the tape is doctored.. Why should i pronounce him guilty? Has the court pronounced him guilty?" And here was when our dear News Reader started to blow his lid off BJP. When someone asked why don't we also take cognizance of Congress & Other Muslim Leaders Making such inflammatory speeches, his answer was "Our concern here is Varun Gandhi and no one else"!!

Analysis- We all know the lineage of Pronoy Roy. A man who married Brinda Karat's Sister and has severe leanings with Congress and Left. Do I doubt his credibility? Yes. For all he has achieved in Media. His reports are biased to the core. And he has a bunch of Irresponsible and arrogant Journalists led by Goodness Gracious Barkha Dutt who put the security of People in Jeopardy during 26/11 attacks in lieu of her coverage. And After that she had the balls to come into columns and try and defend her act by saying "We never invaded in the privacy"? Ms. Dutt.. Before lecturing us on Democracy, first try and be a responsible citizen...
For Details

2. Discussion on Mayaben Kodnani-

"CNN IBN Reporter- Sir.. Now that Maya Kodnani has been proved guilty! Would you please remover her from govt? BJP Spokesman -" But where has been proved guilty?" Reporter - "Today the court gave such strong Remarks against her! Why are u still not accepting?" Spokesperson - "Why are u putting words in my mouth.. I have told my views that she has been asked to resign pertaining judicial process.. Why should i pronounce her guilty.. Have congress leaders been asked to be guilty for 1984 Riots"?
Reporter - "Why are u digging out old dead cases?" Spokesman " For that matter isnt gujrat being dug out?" Reporter " See... U got defensive"

Analysis- We know Raghav Behl's Credentials. He is supposed to be india's beiggest power broker of Indian Media. The fact that INC appointed him to investigate Godhra Train burning incident and his report was criticized by the Court for being factually incorrect brings to light his credentials.
While I do agree that Gujarat riots have been a bad phase, the constant rhetoric of media post 2002 has been an amazing story in itself. Through selective thinking process, they have chosen to forget 1984, bhagalpur and other riots. But they chose to remember every act by a person who has done something amazing in the state of Gujarat. I have been to the state and I can say very openly, that despite of being a growth oriented state from beginning, Modi has changed the attitude of Administration. For all we say about him, the admin is corruption free and one of the most efficient in India. And they themselves attribute it to Modi. And for all the elitist Media can cry, people vote for him, because its u who have made a hero out of him. And its u who have made a hero out of Varun Gandhi

The gist of my thought is to question the credibility of Media. They should be telling me the facts. Not distort them. They shouldnt be putting words in my mouth. They way they do right now. For they are not gods.. But probably one of the most corrupt, arrogant and irresponsible vertical of the democracy.

Finally.. Me..

The ultra super, self professed intellectual, who probably stands at his quarter life crisis situation has accepted the virtue that his mind needs to be read by others and that, He by no virtue on earth is superior than others. The Holier than thou attitude of his was probably a way to fancy others so that no one knows how rotten he is from inside. Quite similar to the idea of Not writing blogs, so that others wont figure out that he too is capable of writing quite a rotten form of English with Millions of Mistakes in one sentence. But today.. Captain O Captain- I surrender.

Hence, I define this blog-

What it is-
It is a blog of a person who is-

1. A management graduate- Hence you shall expect a lot of gas and self professed knowledge. A box full of Jargons half of which he himself would not know and would try to argue out with you that "It has the Right Fit in the sentence"

2. A Finance Professional- Expect a lot of "Chindipan" and number gyaan from me.

3. A Politician and a Critic of Politician From inside- Just like Brecht's Theory of Alienation.. I exist as one and i criticize the one.

4. A highly confused Man- Who doesn't know and claims that he knows..

5. A Lesser Mortal- I am just like you.. But far far superior.. ( I said i have a holier than thou attitude)

6. A Big Thinker, A big Talker and A big Dreamer- Thats a deadly combination.

Once upon a time, My roomie in B-School had a bet with his friend. If I am woken up at midnight and given ten random words and asked to give random gyaan on each for 1 Min. it would be the best talk ever.. I still have the video.. And dude.. I am goddamn the best Gyaani (:-P)

What I am Not

1. A person with Identity Crisis- I have loads of identities and all of them are pretty strong. A politician, a theater artist. A writer.. A Corporate Consultant. A brother.. A lover.. A friend.. Cant count..

2. A writer- Its just a misnomer.. So don't cry when u get bored.

3. A Cry Baby- I dont cry on every small Thing that goes wrong around me.

4. God- I dont and i should not be held responsible for everything

What this Blog is

1. My frustration

2. My Gyaan

3. My Mis- Gyaan

4. My Aspiration

5. My loneliness

6. Everything that it appears to be

What this Gyaan Is not

1. A general Knowledge Page- Google uncle is still the best

2. A page for venting ur frustrations- Mine is enough for this poor little HTML Code to handle

3. Unsolicited Advices will not be entertained- Everyone around me has enough for me.. New ones will create more troubles.

Why Johney Walker- Keep Walking- You shall find out.

And Enough of Leading. I shall walk with others now.. Its interesting.

So this blog essentially has one rule- Like my 1 Min Gyaan sessions-

Tell me a topic- And you will have a blog around it. Now please- If u intend to Copy it and post it as ur gyaan, be it in ur B-school/Non B-School assignments or in ur office mails/Forwards, U are free to do that. But i dont guarantee any authenticity neither will I allow my Shoulders for Crying if you flunk ur papers due to the facts /Mis Facts published here.

With this- I shall open the forum
