    Our media wants to be Sanjaya of Mahabharatha to tell the war events to the public

    Sanjaya was a person blessed to have a divine eye to have a look at the Kurukshetra battlefield and narrate the events to the blind King Dhritarashtra.

    Would it be wrong if I say that our media is trying to be Sanjaya of Mahabharatha to tell the defence events to the public in writing or through debates, interviews and briefings?

    What do you say?

    Sanjaya was remotely viewing the war and narrating what was happening in the war to Dhrutarasta . He is informing him what actually happened in Kurukshetra. So as mentioned by the author the news channels should also do the same work. But these people will add their own thoughts and to create hype and suspense among the viewers they will make it half truth and we may not be able to rely completely on their news.

    Very interesting post. A good analogy.

    They will like to tell everything to the viewers if they have that information. They are only interested in increasing the popularity of their channel.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    Many people say that it was something like todays TV technology in that time that facilitated Sanjaya to communicate the visual proceedings of the Mahabharatha war to king Dhritrashtra.

    This may be true or not but our todays media persons are trying to mimic that situation only and want to show the exact happenings as going on in the front either through videos or animation.

    The TRP of the TV channels has become a mater of prime importance and for increasing that these media persons are ready to go to any extent.

    Knowledge is power.

    Yes, Sanjay got the boon from Lord Krishna so he could view the war of Mahabharata by sitting far away from the place of war. He was given the boon to tell the live telecast of the war of Mahabharata.

    Its true media is acting like Sanjay of Mahabharata.
