Why can't we be impartial and unbiased?My favourite cricket shot is 'playing straight towards/over the wickets'. Let me speak straight here too. Again my views here are nothing to do with the role of Editor; my Forum contribution is totally in my personal capacity as a member except responding to some queries.
Coming to the point. There is nothing wrong to have some personal affiliations to any party or its leader but the way in which we express our views here clearly expose where we are standing or whom we are supporting. Sometimes it appears that our Forum discussions are similar to some National channels which always try to support someone and targeting his political rival. Is it required for us here? Why can't we discuss issues in an unbiased manner even it goes against a leader or a party whom we generally like.
For example, the Social media and News channels try to highlight 'some words' of a young leader (who aspires to lead the country) spelled by him in different contexts. Whereas on the other side, we have a young Chief Minister making controversial statements and passing casual suggestions like 'Don't go for Govt. jobs, just own a cow and opt for selling milk' etc; such comments are conveniently ignored by some media and in our ISC too. I am not supporting anyone here but trying to suggest all of us to be balanced in our discussions as far as politics are concerned. Otherwise, I personally feel that such discussions in this Forum should be dispensed with.
