Am a Christian Sannyasi, Passionately interested in creating a Better World.

NEEDED: ALL ROUND Development

***

Nobody can deny that things are getting better, All around the world, in spite of frightening presentations, especially wrt #Ecology, as excellently presented by #BBCEarth, etc.

What is happening is this:

The focus is economical upliftment of the already rich; #Democracy and particularly #Justice Smothered.

College aged people are Running after ‘love;’

Even the sedate Aditya TV, a Tamil comedy channel, presents it in a ‘series,’ as seen above. Created with GIMP

And Colleges are busy dishing out ways to ‘earn’ and to Get better jobs.

#Journalists too, hiding behind Trained Smiles and Brash voices, forever Self proclaiming to be presenting Truth, are Merely Securing their #Salaries.

MOST people seem to have Forgotten things like Being Humane, Decency, Values, Morality, JUSTICE, Freedom, Democracy, etc.

Hence Needed: All-round development.

To give the idea, I liked this picture.

IN THIS, I BELIEVE #MEDIA CAN DO WONDERS.

Below: The graphic says: A people who do not Lift up their voice Against evil, Will Lift the Biers of its loved ones.

My Dear #media, MAKE Yourselves into the IVth Column again!

Don’t tell me you already ‘are’ that. What you are today is like the columns of #Delphi, good only for ‘Time-pass,’ that favourite of India.

A STORY:

In the book ‘#REMO, Unarmed n Dangerous,’ by Warren-Murphy, We have the #Diamondtoothed villain, introduced as Shooting a journalist (ends unpleasant reportings, see?).

THE POINT:

Thus conceded, Journalism is Dangerous. Dammit, ANY form of Opening the mouth is dangerous.

#Samriddhi Sakunia, #Sandeep Kothari, #Jagendra Singh, #Narendra Tapolkar, #Govind Pansare, #MM Kalburgi, #Gauri Lankesh and More… All who Opened their mouths and got Killed for their pains, are all True #MARTYRS.

…A fellow had headed groups killing Muslims, speaks of it in a ‘sting’ operation. A link to that video is given below, followed by part of what he admitted:

MORE POINTS:

The Indian #JUDICIARY is Ganpatrai (Gand phat raha hai) on #Firecrackers, and #StubbleBurning, #Child Rape, #Lynching, etc.

HOW LONG do you hope to put a (temporary) stop to #constructionwork, #vehiculartraffic, etc, without addressing #stubbleburning and #firecrackers? Till the Next Harvest/Diwali?

Why does not the #supremecourt Order the #uniongorement to Aid the #StubbleProblem, instead of vanity projects like the #Vista and #Delhi’s #SecondAirport?

Would anybody care/dare to inform increase in bronchitis/asthma cases at this time?

Does even #media think, or want to say, that Smoke is Not affecting ‘their’ children n families?

The #supremecourt of India seems to have an awl up its backside, in the form of ‘their’ families being affected. Why else would this august body, which cares zilch about ‘Gang Rapes,’ speak repeatedly about #AirQuality in Delhi?

CONCLUSION:

It is Time to Rethink #JournalisticObjectivity. The Whole Idea behind that was that people would ‘decide’ for themselves. The Problem is that Indians, by and large, are the Most Apathetic of people. Left to them, my Dear #Journos, the honest among you would all be burnt to death, one by one, and the Cowards would be left to Live with that on their #Conscience, a Very Heavy burden, – Google it if you want.

It is Time to Emphasise the idea of #Journalism is to

‘Serve as a Watchdog over those in power, PARTICULARLY THE #JUDICIARY.’

in which I include #judges and #officials.

The #media is not just an estate a column. It is a Cannon, Powerful.

Ok, it is Not going to be easy.

But the #media Speaking Up on Social issues is a Must.

#Journos are Also #FamilyPeople and #Citizens. #Bronchitis, #Asthma, do not spare members of the #judiciary or #journalists.

#Media has to let India Know, by way of Regular Hints, of the Pressure put by the Union gorement on them, and the Failings of the #JUDICIARY.

Sanjeev Bhatt, a Very senior ranking police officer, has been jailed by modi, for speaking up, right from about 2002.

It is Either Speaking Up and putting the Neck on the block,

Dealing Bronchitis and Asthma in the children, etc, and even Worse, as Time gets by.

Christmas Kudos

***

Kudos to a culture that gifts (semi) automatic guns to 15 year old’s. That put these things on ‘reduction’ sales for ‘Christmas.’ Kudos to the #pope who will, at the Most, Mumble Feebly on such subjects.

The Side of the Angels

BEAUTIFUL post! Thank You, Anna!

Heart wrenching tales of abuse could easily fill these pages.  Generally, I try to stay away from stories of that kind.  Too often, they leave us feeling helpless and hopeless.

When I do write about lost lives, the words are my poor attempt to honor those lives and bear witness to the loss.

It may be some small consolation that such children have gone home to God.  Their pain is over.  That should not, however, diminish our outrage.

There are, of course, countless unreported cases of abuse.  Names we will never know, though God is familiar with them all.

While those victims are gone, their struggle ended, our obligation is to fight…

A Truckload vs 2 small coins

The #mundraport, #adani owned, was found with 3000 Kg of #drugs.

Created with GIMP


We find the nation going Hammer-and-Tongs behind somebody whose name is #Khan, whereas No drugs were found on him, 10 gms found with those who were with him.
The modern 1 rupee coin of India weighs 4.85 gms, call it 5. Take 2 of those. …The usual Trucks of India carry 3000 Kgs. So 2 small 1 rupee coins are getting More attention than a Whole Truck-load, bec ‘that’ name is #adani, #modi’s friend.


That is our Indian #media.
And the #judiciary is happy receiving its Fat salaries and perks, and worrying about its pensions.
