We live in era of News flash and Breaking news. Politics lives in era of soundbites, media plays a role of cheerleader and not a watchdog. Did RaGa standing in ATM queue to milk the political opportunity needed so much of media attention?? Does so much of gaga over petty issues dilutes the real cause?? You can support your answers with examples from recent past. Is media turning into soap operas??

|True Arunima, yesterday me and a friend celebrated my son and her daughter's birthday yesterday together with kids from their class. We took the children to Parvati, a hill in the middle of Pune city with lovely old temples and trees around to give them a unique experience. Yesterday being Tripurari Poornima, there was long queue of people starting from the temple entrance at the hilltop and extending all the way down the hilld and then winding round and round on the main streets. It must be at 3.5 kilometres long, people comprising of men, women, kids, old people etc. waiting patiently for seeking blessings of Kartikswamy on the auspicious occasion! Didn't see a single media person expressing anger over the misery of these poor souls who had to wait for hours and hours!LOL :0 - Kalyani Nandurkar - 4 years ago|
|You quoted a nice point. Today I had a broken heart reading the main headlines of our newspaper. There is not a single column anywhere promoting the move, or giving guidance to people. Newspapers, mostly backed by different political parties, mislead people giving only negative impact of the sudden move by government. People turn panic reading such headlines in red ink. Today I was surprised to read from the second most circulated paper of Kerala, Supreme Court criticized government to fail in the supply of currency notes. But nowhere I read it online. Such baseless news bits can brainwash common man, who fully relay on newspapers and cable channels. - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|

|Since the ink system has been introduced, long queues at banks have been reduced considerably. Now it's pretty clear who were standing in long queues and shouting loud. If money is deposited in bank, now most transactions including hospital bills, daily needs and other transactions can be done through net banking and swapping cards. Then why so much 'Hungama'?? - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago|
