    From a very long time I wanted to discuss about the fourth estate of Indian Democracy - INDIAN MEDIA.

    I mean, this is not something we can ignore any longer, Indian media forms public opinion & is given a responsibility to make our society aware.

    There was a huge uproar in news media over ROTI incident, but no one din't even bothered when there were murderers & riots in UP.

    Now I came across this news:

    Over 4,200 detonators recovered in Bihar

    Has anyone of the so-called GREAT Media (NDTV, Timesnow, etc.) bothered to show what can be called as REAL NEWS.

    They are more worried about what Israel is doing to Gaza & what GOI doing to stop Israel, have they asked what GOI is doing to curb inflation, get back on the growth path, why there is no independent defense minister yet, etc.?

    Media (& people of India) wakes upto the reality of the sorry state of Indian sports only when a tiny nation like Scotland beats us in ranking at CWG or when we don't make it to the World event like Fifa-2014. Why don't they ask this question earlier???

    Open any news channel, wishing you can watch some good debates, but you are let down by some BS discussion over why Rahul Baba suddenly woke up from his sleep, or is Modi Autocratic (this was been discussed even before the day he took oath).

    NATION WANTS TO KNOW, WHERE WILL OUR NATION GO, IF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PILLAR OF DEMOCRACY WILL FORGET IT'S DUTY?

    Oh ya....how can i forget that the Pork & Roti thread was competing among themselves to become the most pages thread here, while I had to literally plead Indian members here to make contribution to Uthrakhand relief fund.

    Indians are one of the stupidest people I have seen in my life. Honest opinion man !!! There are educated stupids, literate stupids, illiterate and uneducated stupids too. All kinds...all types.

    Back on topic, aaj-tak used to be good, in english, I don't like any of these news channels. Not to say they haven't done their part in this, they indeed have. But more often than not, push comes to shove, still dogs don't eat dogs in the journalism world in India. Eg, Barkha Dutta and the scam she was involved in with tatas...only OPEN magazine carried the original transcripts of everybody including Barkha Dutta's. TV media killed the story successfully.

    In print media, to people, I would suggest them to get a print copy of these three magazines :

    1. Open magazine. Home | OPEN Magazine

    2. Caravan Magazine. Opinionated, but I really enjoy this magazine. Home | The Caravan - A Journal of Politics and Culture

    3. Tehelka. still good. and a decent magazine actually. Tehelka.com | Investigations, Latest News, Politics, Analysis, Blogs, Culture, Photos, Videos, Podcasts
