CWG Spectacular Inauguration
Prakash F Madhwani | 04 Oct 2010
CWG has been talked about by media for so long now, but the fact remains that it was a momnet of pride for India to see the show that had Prince of Wales to do us the honours of inaugurating it at the beautiful inauguration programme.
AFTER LOOKING at the fantastic inauguration of CWG, it makes me wonder if the various news channels were guiding or misguiding the masses by revealing only dirt and filth of CWG and not focusing on the work of such great propensity done for this event.
The blame of shame till a week ago, seems all lame and tame after the spectacular inaugural; which - courtesy the news channels may have not happened at all if the masses had been so influenced by them. I wish TV channels are more responsible in future, in matters of national interest.
The same applies to the panic like situation created apropos to the Ayodhya verdict, again a creation of the media, a hype that spoke of catastrophic situations including amidst the road side vegetable and flower vendors, who were scared to death and willed to starve without any sales rather than risk their lives.
There was an eerie calm on the roads. What a panic; what for!
