The Trash of India


This is one single newspaper that I seriously consider as a "The TRASH of India".

Today's edition was an epic and at least a few Million Dollars worth of Media Space.
Here are snapshots of the contents for those who might have actually missed nothing at all, except saving Rs. 5/- and a couple of minutes, before it is TRASHED.

ACTUAL FRONT Page, at PAGE No. 7: 
The Trash of India Headlines, only in Half a Page ...

The Trash continues, at Page # 3, actually NINTH Page:

LAST Page:

Page # 24

So that was the 'Main Paper' of today's The TRASH of India for you, 11 out of 24 Pages.
Of course, not considered half a Kilo of newspaper waste in the form of a few Supplements.

And about the supplements of this Trash?  If you put it all together for a month and compile it in one booklet, what you would get is a soft-porn that can be titled -
The TRASH that Tanatalizes India.

It is purely the market dynamics, consumer preferences & buying pattern that decide an advertiser's decision to book media space.

Question: As responsible consumers, do we continue to buy this TRASH and contribute to this insane "in-your-face" advertising tamasha? Think about it ...

100,000 KMs on Tata Aria ...

Before I talk about the Tata Aria and my experience of 100,000 KM journey with it, it would be necessary to go back in time and rewind to discuss how I arrived at this mean machine.

Earlier, I drove Tata Safari, about 120,000 KMs. Let us not try to look for any reasons into my fascination with Tata. To put it simple and straight - even today, I am a big fan of Tata Safari. 
Moreover, with a large family of Five to drive along, it turned out to be more of a necessity than anything else. Two very significant members of our family needed fairly large space. Zara & Marshal - the wonderful lovely couple of German Shepherd. They both loved being driven around and would jump onto the boot as soon as the rear door is opened; and Zara, would refuse to come out as she wouldn't like to be left behind.
Furthermore, being a family of ‘Nature and Wildlife’ enthusiasts, any opportunity of a small get-away and we prefer to look for an off-road destination.

Lastly, this perennial problem of b…

Half-Colonel-Turned-Journo surmonises on Pathankot

AWOL = Absent Without Official Leave.
The Wikipedia page has since been updated to "delete" AWOL and insert the adjective “Prominent” before Journalist, by none other than the "Half-Colonel-Turned-Journo" himself, as per the latest screenshot below:

This little introduction was needed just to establish & understand the true profile of Half-Colonel-Turned-Journo : Ajai Shukla.
We will be discussing the “expert opinions” of Ajai Shukla, published on two different media platforms as follows:
Why the Pathankot op has gone on for so long Dated 5th Jan. Inept handling by the National Security Advisor transformed what should have been a short counter-terrorist operation in Pathankot into an apparent debacle, argues Ajai Shukla. AND
Ajai Shukla: Between Mr Doval and the deep blue sea Business Standard Dated 4th Jan. Inept handling has transformed what should have been a short counter-terrorist operation in Pathankot i…

Nero’s Guests, the age of inequality: A Review

The reason why I have taken up to write a review of Nero’s Guests is because it needs to be widely circulated, written and talked about, as much as possible; so that everyone gets to see it, those who still do not get the time to watch it, may further need to be motivated to do so, and only then it will reach out to the wider audience and be able to make a real impact.
The mainstream media today is totally degenerated and corrupted as it does not cover anything that is not “breaking news” or that is not considered “glamorous” enough to catch eye balls. For this obvious reason, Nero’s Guests has been completely ignored by the mainstream media (both print & electronic) and is not given its due space & visibility.
The subject itself is not new to any of us and it has become a part of our daily lives - mere statistics. It is about the severe agrarian crisis that the country is faced with, as a result of which farmers are still committing suicide and as many as 200,000 farmers have a…
