Uttarakhand Tragedy Breaking News No More? by My Say | Jul 5, 2013 | Social Messages | 49 commentsShare49 Comments shivani on July 5, 2013 at 11:00 am Well said about media…about the victim stranded in tragedy… about put the blame on the Govt… .i felt like sharing some thoughts here. Someone sitting inside me is telling this-” Listen people to what nature is trying to say…stop making these pilgrimages…stop pretending that God dwells in Stones, pictures, temples alone…look for the Almighty inside you…inside all the fellow beings…in nature… and stop messing around once for all…or will you stop when the next time it’s you…but then won’t it be too late…” This one is just too moving…admiration for saying it all so well. Gr8 work once again. Reply My Say on July 5, 2013 at 11:26 am Shivani .. Pilgrimages are still Ok as they never demanded deforestation … even though they have been where they are , since ages ! Its the selfish human kind ! Its so stupid that people earn and save money for future as much as they can but how ? by risking the future of humanity a a whole !! News may come and may become breaking ones and then will perish but there is no impact ..no major impact !! Warnings are being ignored for wealth , time and again – helpless we stand .. we have made ourselves look so ..!! Its time to do something beyond selfish demands of life ! Reply Indrani on July 5, 2013 at 11:04 am Heart breaks at what has happened. 🙁 Good sketches, you are a master at this art. Reply My Say on July 5, 2013 at 11:28 am thanks Indrani ! Awakening is important !I just wish people would understand Breaking News may change but the mishap should have an impact for a change .. for good I appreciate you dropped by 🙂 thanks again for sharing views Reply Rekha on July 5, 2013 at 11:12 am Media Exposed…:-) Reply My Say on July 5, 2013 at 11:30 am yes .. after all they are nothing but corporate sitting there to mint money .. with breaking news !! not their fault entirely. We as a society are laid back and selfish and we may perish sooner than we are thinking !! 🙁 Reply Rekha on July 5, 2013 at 11:55 am You said it. 🙁 Reply Harsha on July 5, 2013 at 11:41 am Media Busted…Mujhe to lagta hai bahut se media ne to set bana liya hoga Uttrakhand ka …Kyunki Uttrakhand jana tu unke liye khatron se bhara hoga… 😛 Reply My Say on July 5, 2013 at 11:48 am hahahaha 😀 Byomkesh Bakshi !! wah re wah kya socha hai .. no big deal .. set banane mei kya lagta hai .. aur RamLal bhi khada kar sakte hain ! 😀 Reply Harsha on July 5, 2013 at 11:53 am Hehehe..Dhanyabad..DhanyaBad.. 🙂 Reply Sfurti Juzta mom on July 5, 2013 at 12:55 pm Sad and true but why blame media alone…the fact is they have the highest TRP during any crisis. All the circus sells well…television sets are kept on at the highest volume…playing the channel with the loudest host!!!!! Reply My Say on July 5, 2013 at 12:57 pm I blame us first !! Society makes media and politicians and goons and saints .. Its us who are wrong first !! Reply farzana & aliasgarmukhtiar on July 5, 2013 at 1:53 pm sad times are here brother Reply My Say on July 5, 2013 at 2:16 pm indeed bhai Reply Cynthia Vincent on July 5, 2013 at 2:21 pm ha ha lol… good one… this is what the media is about. 🙂 Reply My Say on July 5, 2013 at 2:26 pm hei were are you these days ?? 🙂 Indeed Media means trading News !! Reply Abhra Pal on July 5, 2013 at 3:05 pm This is the first time I have visited your blog and I am at a loss of admiring your work. Wonderful. I loved them. Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 12:39 pm Thanks Abhra !! I am overwhelmed .Your compliments are a motivator 🙂 Thanks for dropping by . Reply Suhas on July 5, 2013 at 3:28 pm Interesting illustration of a very common fact. Media channels are commercial units and it is a joke expecting social service from them. Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 12:41 pm true words Suhas they are all but social workers ! Reply Arti on July 5, 2013 at 3:40 pm Genuine emotions and sensitivity have faded somewhere in times of race, competition and TRP’s… Sad scenario but so true. Amazing cartoons. Reply Aziz Ampanwala on July 5, 2013 at 4:05 pm Critical and sorrow situation … News coverage journalist making a nuisance of it… Glad you came up with this .. its just heart breaking when such catastrophe is portrayed this way .. You doodle just created a statement … Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 12:45 pm Thanks Aazi.. I am just hurt that .. Media alongwith all the goods is also trying sell Emotions for temporary TRPs .. Many of these issues are forgotten sooner than later … and thats bad !! This also happens because every alternate day a news is being hyped and then subdued ! Reply vvpvijay on July 5, 2013 at 5:59 pm mysay I believe we also are responsible for the media hype after all we are the ones they cater to. Even we have erased the Uttarakhan tragedy from our memory Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 12:49 pm I believe we have created medis the way it is .. the corporate the way they are .. the political leaders .. the way they take us .. its we who are responsible Vijay Ji, foremost! They are just a prt of this same society. Reply Bushra on July 5, 2013 at 6:17 pm Bitter Truth! Media can keep us updated about Ramlal but can’t help him 😐 ! Beautifully depicted! Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 12:50 pm Thanks Bush!! We as individuals and the TRP generators should behave more responsible I believe 🙂 Reply Easwar Arumugam on July 5, 2013 at 11:02 pm Ha ha ha.Medias behave like that.All vultures Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 12:54 pm Yes Sir,.. whenever there is a crises .. all opportunists jump in … to take the share of benefit and then leave the situation as it is. Reply kritibhatnagar on July 6, 2013 at 10:35 am Go get a life dude :P:P Only a media person is supposed to quote that to a flood victim! Correctly put!! Like like! Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 12:56 pm Thanks Kriti , the poetess 🙂 I ma glad you got the pun 🙂 Reply sharmishtha basu on July 6, 2013 at 4:15 pm a very stark piece of reality! amazing piece! Reply My Say on July 6, 2013 at 4:33 pm thanks Sharmishtha Reply Pankti Mehta on July 9, 2013 at 2:30 pm When I see these things, I really feel like giving up on the world and turn into a nasty recluse in some jungle. Reply My Say on July 9, 2013 at 2:49 pm Jungle ? what is that ?In India it will soon be extinct 😀 thanks to deforestation you wont have a jungle to stay away from the sin world 😀 Reply Pankti Mehta on July 9, 2013 at 2:58 pm But I still stand the chance of being a nasty recluse, don’t I? I guess that would be enough for the time being. 😀 Reply My Say on July 9, 2013 at 3:07 pm hahaha ! indeed be as nasty as you can but before banish .. somewhere .. take a Tata Photon alongwith .. so that you can keep blogging 😀 😉 Reply Pankti Mehta on July 9, 2013 at 3:14 pm Haha…no way am I taking Internet with me! If I take it with me, again all the things will start from which I want to run. However I will take my laptop with me, so that I can write in it uninterruptedly. 😀 My Say on July 9, 2013 at 3:36 pm and take a special connection just to visit my site and like and comment on it 😀 Jiggyasa on July 9, 2013 at 3:38 pm very well narrated Jack. For the first one week, Media had almost become Akshaya Kumar at the tragedy inflicted area..but slowly as the rescue operations finished, the media vanished from the site slowly. By the way..is this media guy CAMERAMAN RAJU K SATH…DEEPAK CHAURASIYA? Reply My Say on July 9, 2013 at 3:43 pm hahaha !! Raju ke saath Prabhu Chawla .. may be !! hehehe .. they all look same to me promoting – we are braving this rain.. flood..landslide .. scorching sunlight.. water cannons .. etc only for you .. Bane Rahiye .. humare channel phalana dhikna news par 🙂 Reply Vaisakh on July 9, 2013 at 8:54 pm Sad but true 😐 Reply My Say on July 9, 2013 at 8:57 pm hmm!! yes indeed !! Reply Dinesh Kumar Radhakrishnan on July 11, 2013 at 5:38 pm Not only this flood, every news is worthy.. They can think of something like sensex to indicate the level of sensation they can create.. Sensax points.. TRP is old one.. Come on media.. Reply My Say on July 11, 2013 at 5:50 pm Yes a business to sensationalize good and bad !! at any cost !! Reply Dinesh Kumar Radhakrishnan on July 11, 2013 at 5:44 pm Aarushi.. Mumbai blast, Damini Case, IPL issue, Floods.. We public will forget.. You keep doing media business. But believe me, Media if they do their part well they can bring any good change and a better India, which now seems impossible. But Mostly they too are selfish. Reply My Say on July 11, 2013 at 5:57 pm its a corporate world taking care of the business called Making News and Breaking News !! Reply Nidhi Pandey on July 12, 2013 at 12:25 am Ha Ha Good one.. This is actually the Reality of Media..truly disgusting! Very well potrayed! Reply My Say on July 12, 2013 at 12:37 am thanks Nidhi ! I am glad you dropped by and expressed your views 🙂 Indeed Media is a corporate business and they sell sensations ! ReplySubmit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
