Silence on good newsThe petrol and diesel price has been coming down slowly but steadily for the last eight days. When the price of petroleum products goes up, there is so much hullabaloo everywhere. It is quite natural and it must be so. At the same time, when the price comes down, at least a very small news item or a small mention in the television news is expected. But I don't see such news in any media. Why?
Only five days before, there was a raging debate on the cost of the Patel statue everywhere. Even, on this platform of ISC, there was strong criticism on the justification of the statue and also about the cost of the statue. It was stated that almost Rs. 3000 crores were spent on this Statue of Unity. Now, I have come to know that during the first ten days, there has been an earning of Rs. 2.1 crores from the visitors. At this rate, the cost of the statue will be returned in 1500 days, i.e., in little more than 4 years. Although this statue has not been built to earn revenue, those, who were making a cost-benefit analysis, have been silent now.
Why so much silence on these good news?
