Has the meaningful media come to an end?It was 24th February, 2018 when we got a sad as well as a shocking news that the legendary Bollywood actress Sridevi is no more with us. It was hard to believe but still with a will of acceptance we tried to do so. Media was continuously showing News about the death of Sridevi and it was natural though but it was for continuous 4 days, there was no news about our Military, about any current affair but only about Death of Sridevi.
The headlines were the highlights "Chandani has gone to some dark place", "Sridevi's death a natural death or a Conspiracy", etc. I was like please stop it and show something useful. I hardly got anything to see about our Jawans or about the Syria's conditions. I was ashamed at this and was continuously thinking "Has the meaningful media come to an end?".
So many young innocents were being killed by heartless devils in Syria but bro there was no news about it. I was sad at Sridevi's death but I cried at the condition of Syria.
Coming to India, Sri Shankaracharaya ji well known for his contributions for Poor peoples passed away. And there was no news, no coverage, no mourning over it? He was a great soul, he was the real person who deserved such a huge and continuous coverage but the media has evolved over "Bollywood, Politics and Cricket" that we hardly get to hear anything else.
A humble request to our Media is that please rather than showing such a non stop coverage for an actress who did nothing for humanity but for her daughters to bring them up in Bollywood , show about a person who sacrificed his life for Poor and please try to show empathy towards innocents being killed in Syria if you can't do anything.
Thank you and I really didn't want to show any emotion against Sridevi ji, I respect her but I have a strong feeling against News channels.
