Was reading CNN today and came upon this. Worst ever flood in South Asia. According to UNICEF, they have “lost track” of the number of people affected by the floods. An estimated 20 million people have been displaced across South Asia, hundreds upon thousands have lost literally everything they owned. The worst hit areas in India, according to the article are Bihar and UP.

And reading this I opened Times of India. This is the webpage that came up.

Wanting to read something from desh, I looked up Samachar.com – here is the main page

So there you go. What that good Sanjay Dutt told pursuing reporters got precedence over the flood victims. Because its “them”. And “we” can still do the things we do.

Shame. On moral ethos. On the level of journalism. On the editors of the web newspapers. Shame
