“When a puppy bites a gentleman, it truly is no news, but when a gentleman bites a dog its news.”
In Bollywood, whosoever bites is breaking news. Be it Rakhi Sawant’s tantrums on Valentines Working day or April fools day, a tattoo on either Amrita Arora’s butt or Saif Ali Khan’s hand, Mallika Sherawat’s limited, revealing dresses or Aishwarya Jodha Rai’s royal jewellery, information channels and website page 3 sections of newspapers have devoted majority of there manpower, time and room to Bollywood gossips.
I have developed up studying Hindi newspapers like Amar Ujala, Dainik Jagran and Rajasthan Patrika. There were times, when I utilized to fight for reading through Sunday’s coloured version of these regional newspapers. Out of 4 web pages i.e. one particular complete leaf of the newspaper, only one-fourth was devoted to this sort of gossips and rest three-fourth was for intellectual or socio-spiritual articles, brief tales and sequence by budding or proven writers, poetries, and kids’ segment including Chacha Chaudhary cartoon collection, jokes, puzzles and a lot of a lot more video games. It was ample entertainment for my harmless brain. It was the identical for Tv set Channels or Channel rather. Wednesday’s and Friday’s Chitrahar and the Sunday night motion picture was all we used to know of Bollywood. Of course, there had been Filmfare and Filmikaliyan as properly but DD presented us with a great deal to talk for the total week.
Celebrity fashion news ‘s in which present working day information channels and papers are capitalizing. We try to know about the insights of celebrities’ personal lives. We want to be like them and to an extent follow them, at times blindly. Now we do not talk, we will not share our views and feelings there is no vent for our urge to categorical. It is just one particular-way traffic. We have turn into a garbage for all the reporting garbage. We are just listening. It’s a good routine, no doubt, but what about expression? But when we hear 24×7, silly information on Amitabh Bhachan’s superstitious ritual of marrying Aishwarya Rai with a Banyan tree in buy to preserve his son from her Manglik influence, it’s way too significantly to digest.
India is a region which still is in its nascent phase of improvement. It truly is a transition period and also considerably is taking place too rapidly. There is Kalahandi below and Colaba as effectively. These areas differ like light and darkness. India can pay for this but Bharat are unable to. Bharat nonetheless wants krishi darshan, fauji bhaiyon ke liye, Iodine namak, university chalien hum and jachha-baccha tika-karan karykram. We need to improve the living circumstances of much more than half of our inhabitants and to this mass, Bollywood is nowhere, even in their distant dreams. They want an average good quality life and Bollywood gossips are of no excellent to them.
The media has to understand its social tasks- there is considerably far more than sting functions and Bollywood. There are many channels absolutely devoted to Bollywood news. So the so-referred to as information channels need to adhere to the hardcore news. The recent pattern is an insult to journalism and reporting. Quit this!February 24, 2019
