Yes TOI - You're a waste of Internet Space!

So I was reading this. And my first reaction - Who the eff even writes stuff like this for public consumption?!

Times of India just gets better by the day, doesn't it? Its funny how they tried to humanize the whole hanging thing of Yakub Menon. How he had a last call with his daughter, how he kept telling he didn't do anything to her, how he told her wanted to see her married and live HEA but was now never going to get the chance and stuff like that. Agreed of course - he was a human being. He had emotions. He loved his family and all that. But the people who died in those blasts na (never mind that it was so long ago) - they also loved their families and they were equally loved back by their families. And they never got to have a choice of last meal or last bath or for that matter, even a last hi/bye.

But I guess - TOI's business isn't to waste Paper/Internet space on things like that. Their only business is to sensationalize and glorify all the wrong stuff. Whether Yakub Memon was truly involved in all that stuff or not is known only to him, his immediate family and whoever was involved in that crime back then and above all, God. But for as long as its being held that he was involved in it and there's no evidence to prove against it, I don't know what spurs TOI to publish stuff like it does.

But TOI isn't alone in this, you know?! Read this.

By the way, sample this gem here in the second article: "Recently, Chhota Shakeel, one of the key accused in the case, told Times of India that India committed "legal murder" and closed all future doors for negotiations by its intelligence agencies to secure the return of Dawood, who was allegedly the mastermind behind the coordinated attacks."

Bwahahahahaha! Effing Jerks!

Anyways, getting back to the main topic, moral of my ranting is - TOI is officially the scum of the Indian Media.

P.S. While on the topic of TOI - considering porn is being banned, I urge the GOI to seriously consider including TOI on their list too. Look at the homepage of TOI and you'll know why!

It is a sad state

Can't believe the stuff that is happening to women in India. I'd have liked to say - Rural India, in the hope that the urban men are more educated and hence more decent in the way they approach women. But looks like it isn't something that is limited only to the rural areas. How difficult is it for a human being to respect and give space to another fellow human being? 

You don't have to go by 'Love Thy Neighbor' and go around loving everybody around you even when you don't want to and can't. We all are normal human beings after all and getting angry or upset with someone next to you is but natural. But can't people make that little judgement about what is acceptable behavior and what is not? What comes over them that they decide to fall down so much in terms of their character and actions that they feel the need to violate someone's existence like that?

The news about the mother molested and shot to death (five times - in her head!) somewhere in Meghalaya, in front of her husband and children was more than revolting and saddening. I couldn't even the imagine the lengths of depravity that people go to, to be able to do something as heinous as that.

Governments, rules, policies, committees - all is fine. But what can you do about something that is in someone's head? How can anyone change that, but themselves? I've seen that education is good to an extent, but honestly, education doesn't equal decency and many people - men & women - irrespective of their level of education, act so mental and their behavior isn't what a decent society should be witnessing. 

Change in thinking. Change in perception. Change in judgement. Change. That is all we need. And that is all that there is a shortage of.

Did I ever tell

Anyone of you here that I got married in November last year?

i.e. - Apart from Vrij Bhai, RT, Swathi, Ranga and the likes that I talk to outside the blogworld..

Sigh... marriage changes life in so many ways!
