Go on, surprise us-II

Posted: December 10, 2010 in Politics

It does not take a genius to understand that the Radia tapes, Vir-Burkha conversations is the norm rather than one-offs of how Fourth Estate works in this country, or for that matter, the world. The expose’s by Wikileaks shows how a handful of people decide what the world sees (and does not see).

What is disconcerting is how the genral public is largely the useful idiot, with glimpses of such shocking (yaaawwwwwwwnn) revelations happening at the convenience of those that decide so, and how behind-the-scene dramas (with the myth of an Opposition and ruling party) are played out to provide entertainment (to some) and bleak hopelessness for the country, for the most zealous of idealists like me.
