What are the similarities between Sania Mirza, Dr. Sashi Tharoor and Lalit Modi?
1. They were in the headlines of Indian News Papers for more than a week
2. They all are famous personalities
3. They all are appreciated for the work they have done in their respective field
4. They all have list of controversies in their past
5. Dubai: One wanted to settle in Dubai,One’s gf was in Dubai and the last one was actually in Dubai!
6. They all have Twitter accounts!
Sania Mirza, a Tennis player who displayed a good tennis skills and other stuff creating controversies. Married a Pakistani guy to add fuel to that controversy. And this controversy was complemented by her current husband.
Dr. Sashi Tharoor, a very clean personality with full of controversies. Many times, a female is involved in some or the other way. Let it be the shifting of office or granting equity, Dr. Tharoor has a very sweet and soft corner for his girl friend(s).
Lalit Modi, a student who was charged for drug trafficking, kidnapping, possession of deadly weapon etc.
Some way or the other, each one has done something that should not have been done. Because in the end, they all are humans, just like you and me. So if act like this are going to be headlines of our newspapers, then I really doubt the mindset of the media who is constantly changing the way of thinking of its target audience. So what should we do to this media? REMOVE IT.
Thats exactly what twitter is all about. When the famous personality from verified account tweet’s something, it is directly from him/her with no reporter, no journalist, no editor, no publisher! I think, Truth in Indian media is just like the aid given by the World Bank. When the world bank donates money to Government, at every single step there is a negative change in the amount. Similarly, when some renowned personality says something, the truth level decreases at every touch point of media. Twitter has no middlemen, it publishes what is said!
Now there is something called Diplomacy. Where you have to do something in order to get something that is closely related to the personal or organisational interest. Sometimes, truth has to be concealed. The problem arises when your truth is surfaced by your opponent! So Twitter can be a medium to tell the truth directly! It is just that the audience is not used to reading truths and that is why the controversies. 😛
Lets think something about tolerance. Some people are misfit, just like Sashi Tharoor. He must be experiencing things that are not ethical. Let me put it in this way,
the moment your tolerance level reach its peak, the moment you think that you are suffocating, the moment you think that enough is enough, that is the moment you TWEET!
and you are relieved, you think that your fans will support you, of course they will. But when you are relieved, you also realize that it a virtual world. Your fans are educated creamy layer of India, who tweets but does not vote. So, basically you don’t have the support that you actually need.
They forget that their support is not the number of fans, but their truth! So, if they are wrong and truthful about it, they will quit.. If they are wrong and arrogant about it, they will stay! But if they are honest and truthful about it, they will marry! 😛
Let Sania Mirza do whatever she want to and with whoever she wants to. It is her personal choice to marry someone she like. It should not hurt the sentiments of any particular nation as such. I seriously don’t care!
If Shashi Tharoor is sacked, why are we leaving others? Just because they are shameless enough to stay?
Use Lalit Modi’s talent to promote some other event and attract foreign direct investment. Don’t waste his money and govt. time to work on the case!
I request Nandan Nilekani to stop his crap about unique identification number, everyone has Facebook account, add them all and count your friends 😛 Also, make it compulsory for all the political leaders to have twitter account. Their account should be verified, and they should tweet at least 20 times to give updates related to their work! I know they can cheat, as always, but it will be fun to follow them on twitter!
BTW, it is so obvious that love, power and money are so interrelated. Think about it!
