We as an individual have various places to meet. We have conference halls, dinner tables, restaurants, movies hall, picnic spots, tourist attractions and list goes on and on. We are now living in the age of Internet that dramatically broadens our horizon. Internet spares nothing, not even World News. Internet has given it a defined platform where every body can come, meet and discuss the issues of current affairs. Current affair has all the latest news about every imaginable topic. That includes news about nations as well. Like India News has its own story to tell in term of being latest.
New Horizons, new philosophy of interests, new ideas of representation, new biases and with all this comes new problems. Today suppressing an incident has become very challenging. The moment anything occurs it has potential to become World news. We have mobile camera to catch it and YouTube to share it. Word called privacy has beginning to become extinct. You can see Paparazzi very active in all the places. They are freelance photographers who take photos that can be used for cheap publicity to make quick money. Earlier all this required special equipments. Now everything is within reach. This makes them busy picking raw material and then cooking up stories from it. Celebrities like Film Stars, Politics, and Media People get caught easily. And they make latest news without being aware of it.
Intellectuals just love news. It sings melody in their brains. They get a way to flaunt their awareness of the world around them. India news, thus, becomes hot topic if these intellectuals happen to be Indians. Situation is like “India News – It’s Good! Latest News about it – It’s even better!” Some amongst them are a freak to the extent that they can debate to the end of the time.
These people form communities, Blogs, forums, discussion Portals etc. Freaks that don’t make them, they follow and participate in them to be a part of this activity.
This buzz is not going to die. Not now, when people have found a way to express and do not face the consequence. For that matter both kinds of it- good as well as bad. So overall, Story is not what it seems. With the change in point of view, it varies. Moral of story though remains same. Every coin has two faces; make sure you hold the one you like and can stand by it. Again this face (of coin) can be in any form. It may be in the garb of place, name, platform or news. When we say news, India news along with the World News comes automatically. Choose your face of coin wise and justify it!
