“When a dog bites a guy, it truly is no news, but when a man bites a pet its news.”
In Bollywood, whosoever bites is breaking news. Be it Rakhi Sawant’s tantrums on Valentines Day or April fools working day, a tattoo on possibly Amrita Arora’s butt or Saif Ali Khan’s hand, Mallika Sherawat’s quick, revealing attire or Aishwarya Jodha Rai’s royal jewelry, news channels and website page three sections of newspapers have devoted majority of there manpower, time and area to Bollywood gossips.
I have grown up reading Hindi newspapers like Amar Ujala, Dainik Jagran and Rajasthan Patrika. There ended up days, when I utilised to struggle for looking through Sunday’s colored version of these regional newspapers. Out of four pages i.e. a single total leaf of the newspaper, only a single-fourth was devoted to these kinds of gossips and rest three-fourth was for mental or socio-religious articles, limited stories and collection by budding or set up writers, poetries, and kids’ section including Chacha Chaudhary cartoon series, jokes, puzzles and a lot of far more video games. It was ample enjoyment for my innocent thoughts. It was the very same for Tv Channels or Channel fairly. Wednesday’s and Friday’s Chitrahar and the Sunday night motion picture was all we utilized to know of Bollywood. Of course, there had been Filmfare and Filmikaliyan as effectively but DD offered us with a lot to chat for the entire week.
That is the place current working day news channels and papers are capitalizing. We try to know about the insights of celebrities’ personal life. We want to be like them and to an extent adhere to them, occasionally blindly. Now we don’t talk, we do not share our views and thoughts there is no vent for our urge to specific. It is just one-way site visitors. We have grow to be a rubbish for all the reporting rubbish. Yeh Hai Mohabbatein are just listening. It’s a good practice, no doubt, but what about expression? But when we listen to 24×7, silly news on Amitabh Bhachan’s superstitious ritual of marrying Aishwarya Rai with a Banyan tree in order to save his son from her Manglik influence, it truly is way too much to digest.
India is a nation which nonetheless is in its nascent phase of advancement. It really is a changeover interval and also considerably is taking place also rapidly. There is Kalahandi below and Colaba as properly. These areas vary like mild and darkness. India can find the money for this but Bharat can’t. Bharat still wants krishi darshan, fauji bhaiyon ke liye, Iodine namak, faculty chalien hum and jachha-baccha tika-karan karykram. We need to have to boost the residing problems of far more than 50 % of our population and to this mass, Bollywood is nowhere, even in their distant goals. They want an average quality existence and Bollywood gossips are of no very good to them.
The media has to realize its social tasks- there is significantly much more than sting operations and Bollywood. There are several channels entirely devoted to Bollywood news. So the so-known as information channels should stick to the hardcore news. The existing trend is an insult to journalism and reporting. End this!
