Hotel Taj : icon of whose India ?

Gnani Sankaran; Tamil writer, Chennai.

Watching at least four English news channels surfing from one another during the last 60 hours of terror strike made me feel a terror of another kind. The terror of assaulting one’s mind and sensitivity with cameras, sound bites and non-stop blabbers. All these channels have been trying to manufacture my consent for a big lie called – Hotel Taj the icon of India.

CST is the true icon of Mumbai.

American Elections: Watch this ad

Dear friends across America,

As the barrage of negative ads intensifies, watch this new US election ad from Avaaz members calling for hope, tolerance and change.

Amidst the non-stop barrage of negative and divisive advertisements that have defined this election campaign, Avaaz members from the US and across the world have produced a positive and respectful ad before Americans head to the polls next Tuesday.

Watch the ad, and if you like it, send this email to friends or put the clip on your blog. Watch it here:

Life a comedy which pretends to be a tragedy !?

People react very differently to different situations based on their nature, wit or philosophy by which they live. Some people really do surprise us by going one more step ahead !

Gotcha? You Betcha!

John McCain and Sarah Palin have been complaining that there’s too much “gotcha journalism” going around. If only… When they say “gotcha journalism,” what they’re really trying to do, of course, is to demonize journalism itself — to de-legitimize asking tough questions…

There’s no better way for a lay person to understand the current crisis than by listening to two episodes of This American Life – “The Giant Pool of Money,” which aired last May, and “Another Frightening Show About the Economy,” which aired last weekend. Read More…
