On making politics out of an unfortunate event

March 21, 2015

What would have been a quarter page news in the inside pages, has become front-line news and dirty muck being thrown around back at the subject, whose cause people were trying to apparently fight. A person’s life can have various unrelated dimensions. E.g. A good golfer can have character flaws, and so can a crusader.

Surprised that even with all this out, still many are suspending simple reason and logic, and out to believe massive conspiracy theories. Arnab’s job is to hunt TRPs, and sadly he will not even leave alone an event like this. Rajdeep conducted a much more saner debate featuring the same Karnataka person, some Mr. Gundu, who was being hounded out by an array of people, yesterday.

AAP had already let themselves down massively in the YY-PB vs AK & friends controversy earlier. And did not restrain themselves to milk this unfortunate event either. I got a couple SMS requests from AAP-KAR for Jail-Bharo Andolan, at the height of this controversy. And I believe some people went on a hunger strike on this, as well.

Somehow, I was very cynical, of this entire thing from the beginning, based on the circumstantial details. Even without this personal mess getting out. I think MSM looks for TRPs, and social media provides all the schizophrenia.

Lastly, IMHO. No cause is noble enough for truth to get distorted. Satyameva Jayate (Truth Alone Triumphs).
