let me take the liberty of saying that the media in our country, especially the television media has gone absolutely hopping mad. just this morning there was a report of a partially mutilated unidentified body being discovered in a box by the roadside (sic!). ok…u had to report this…go ahead… but why show the gruesome sight without any warnings. these days in most homes children are perched infront of the TV at all hours and they should not be exposed to such uncensored visuals. leave alone children even adults feel disturbed. even a few years back television news items were heavily monitored. but now as the number of channels is increasing by leaps and bounds, the players are becoming more desperate to grab attention. in their effort to surge ahead in the competition one channel is trying to create more sensation than the others. what is disturbing is that the medium is an unmonitored and easily accessible one. and displaying violence and terrifying sights like charred bodies/accident victims/mutilated corpses is extremely disturbing. the viewers are left with haunting pictures. also the dead deserve some amount of respect and peace. the bodies are depicted in gruesome details. for Gods sake!… these were people..with homes, families, lives. not just numbers or news. why cant the dead be shown respect and left alone? as it is they would not have made it to the news @ 9 if they had died a normal death. so why dig up the ghosts and chase them even after their death? isnt the media responsible in anyway to guide the soceity in the treatment of its members…in life or death?
