Why does Indian Media give any attention to politicians ?

I think someone should tell Mr Rane, who was so dissapointed for not being appointed Chief Minister of Maharashtra, that no one in India will be surprised if politicians had supported terrorism. So he should just carry out his threat of spilling the beans. No one cares anymore. That is what we, the people of India now think of Politicians. As the citizens of Mumbai and the rest of India come to terms with the immensity of what is facing their lives, their children’s lives, the future fo their country, the politicians are back to playing games with the nation. One resigns, another takes over, another threatens to topple the government. Nothing changed. They are not listening to the loud and clear message of the people of India. That India needs an entirely new force of leadership, and the old guard is completely irrelavent. Why does the Media even give them any attention ?

  1. Sir,
    Media in my opinion have their own loyalties to assure their exclusive bytes and news from these Politicians who call themselves Newsmakers. As for Mr.Rane, every loser has a right to rebel and make the best of everything, the only qualification any one needs in Politics.
    Vinod Agarwal – Better Politicians means fewer News Channels.

  2. Because they run our country Shekhar!. However much you abhor them, you cannot ignore them. Is India gearing up for a revolution? The temperatures are running high but all the news is from the metros. Nothing is going to change in India till the angst and unrest reaches the grass-root level. And the common man in India, is so resigned to his fate that nothing seems to arouse him.
    I sometimes think the only reason we managed to get up and fight against the British was because they were persistent in their atrocities keeping our angst alive. If they had adopted the good co-bad cop policy India would never have been independent!

  3. Dear Shekhar – this is a well-driven, short and discriptive letter!! It cannot be more clear or concise of the issues at hand. Well done! Shekhar, you and your friends and collegues, whom share similar ideas may find interest in a magnificent “vine” called newsvine.
    Click my name to see mine; and one can join from there. One can create their own “vine groups” as which I have done as well(Social-Income Poverty Watch) so I only mention this, not to promote myself as I am nobody, but one of billions on the bottom rung of lifes heirarchic wealth/success or important ladder!
    I just thought it might perhaps benefit India; to have a significant global sounding-place such as newsvine.. to implement global, internet communications changes FOR/WITH India with support of others around the world!!(like me, for instance.)
    The word is a mighty tool, the pen even mightier than the sword; this is why, corrupt governments imprison their journalists and rights people and groups!!
    The “vine” can be a lift out of such “oppression”
    Shekhar, if you join the “vine” site; plz seek me as a friend, as I’ve always liked what you have to say! : ) and am addicted now to your clarifying thoughts, after 3 years reading you online to that, and your poetry!! lol
    Main rule on the site though; is that one cannot promote themselves as articles – they want news, but not “hey, buy my product, or ME news.” well, check it out, you’ll see.
    Stay Blessed,
