Indian Journalism: From Enchantment to Surrender!

Think 140 million people and the time of the 21st century. And what do citizens get from the newspaper? Propaganda of lies, ignorance, superstition and devotion-sycophancy every moment! Undoubtedly there are many dictator countries like China and Russia and these, which do not give freedom of media and expression to the subjects, but note the fact that these countries also treat their citizens with superstition, worship the dictator like God, make people ignorant by lies and Don’t tie them into a foolish narrative of the greatness of living a life dependent on donations.

Indian journalism is the mirror of how independence is in the 75th year of independence! Consider what is the gist of Indian journalism’s journey of 75 years? That is the essence of India. Independence made the subjects dependent on the government. He lost his intellect. Made him dim, blunt, frightened. corrupted him. made him aimless. made him employed. Made him enchanted, bhakt, fool, langur and cock, neech-galeez… and equivalent is the journey of Indian journalism. The early period was the period of enchanted-dumb journalism (22 years from 15 August 1947 to 1969). The second period was the flurry of journalism for speaking out (from 1969 to 1975). The third phase was the creeping journalism (Emergency of 1975-77). The fourth period was the jump-and-daring journalism (15 years from 1978 to 1993). Then from 1994 onwards the ‘idiot box’ shouts, cock fights and slowly the horrific aartis followed by dedicated journalism (from 1994 to present).

The core fact-truth of all times is the failure of the Indian media in the test of democracy, in the test of civilized-developed society-race. Meaning, like the world’s civilized France, America, Britain, Germany, etc., with the power and talents of the pen, magazines have put the intellect like a moon, showed people the torch of truth and truth and the three pillars of democracy i.e. legislature, executive Not allowing the judiciary to crack, deviate, become corrupt and create a generation after generation crop of intelligence that made the public aware, not even a single bit of work has been done in India!

Because of that, the truth emerges of us Hindus that if we Hindus do not know how to rule, neither have we understood the vibrancy of democracy, freedom of expression and living with truth. You also remember that in 75 years of experience, how many names, how many institutions are there, whose vivacity and masculinity kept the news of India’s democracy in bloom. There was a check on the arbitrariness of the executive, legislature from him! The public was aware of the check-balance and its rights were saved! Think 140 million people and the time of the 21st century. But what do citizens get from the newspaper? Propaganda of lies, ignorance, superstition and devotion-sycophancy every moment! Undoubtedly there are many dictator countries like China and Russia and these, which do not give freedom of media and expression to the subjects, but note the fact that these countries also treat their citizens with superstition, worship the dictator like God, make people ignorant by lies and Don’t tie them into a foolish narrative of the greatness of living a life dependent on donations. The controlled media of China and Russia also do not fool people that their leader is an incarnation of God or come inside the house to fight the battle of Panipat, watch the cock fight on TV, listen!

That is why India of Hindus on this earth is that strange country, whose media is slowly cooking people’s hearts and minds for civil war through cock fighting, on TV screens within the country itself, in social media. It is also wonderful that even in 1947, the media was describing its Prime Minister Nehru as an incarnation angel, then after 75 years, today he is also performing the aarti of Narendra Modi as an avatar and protector.

am i wrong?

If so, what was the achievement of the freedom of the subjects, democracy of India in 75 years of independence or how could any accomplishment be achieved or will happen in future?

Roosevelt, de Gaulle, Margaret Thatcher or Willie Brandt, Golda Meyer or all the global paradigms of democracy-development in the last 75 years of the world (from America to Japan, Germany in the initial journey of creation after the demolition of about 1947) , Till Israel) Thinking about what the citizens of there were going to make from flying freely, what will come out if we think for ourselves? In the same way, how Mao, Khrushchev, Deng, Putin can make the nation and nation by making people by making them sweat, blood and sweat is also in front of their eyes. So what did we citizens become in the 75 years from Nehru to Narendra Modi, what does not reflect the failure of the newspaper? Tie the knot that the failure of Indian journalism is also the reason responsible for the 75 years of journey that lasted for nine days. The intelligence that the legislature, the executive, the judiciary got from this journalism, the check-balance, the awareness of the public and the accountability that it should get, nothing has happened.

Only then note the underlined truth of Modi’s journalism journey from Nehru that the citizens of India did not get that tool, that system, that medium, which is the number one quality of developed democracies like Britain, America. Consider my question that in the last two hundred years, what led to the splendor and development of western civilization? Your answer is from the spread of thought, news or truth and the knowledge-science that develops from it. Whether it is Adam Smith or Karl Marx or all the national heroes who made the country-constitution, their understanding, idea, their intelligence has been expanded from newspapers and magazines. Time may be digital today, but whether it is ‘The New York Times’ or ‘The Economist’, ‘Le Mond’ of Western democracy, all are still influential and are the gangotri of the society-country’s intelligence, ideas, information.

you won’t believe it. Because this truth cannot penetrate into the common slave mind of India that country-society-nation-state really cooks only and only in the dose of wisdom-thinking-truth. Its means are magazines, in which the direction of the nation is formed by contemporary writing and understanding of the country and the world. One word of English is intelligentsia! Means intellectual tribe of intellectual people. Who are these? Among all its definitions, it is believed that these are the people who, by weighing time and events on the scales of knowledge, express knowledge to the rest of society in understanding-wisdom, outside their expertise, professionalism, the general public, society. , the system, the nation-state easily communicate what is the truth and who, how, in what can be made the nation-public? How can the freedom of citizens, their efforts, their rights be protected and made long?

So what is the medium? Journalism, Journalism. We people of India do not know that America-Britain in all developed-civilized-democracies, magazines, think tanks of intelligentsia existed even hundred-two hundred years ago and still are today. ‘Foreign Affair’, ‘The New York Times’, ‘Le Mond’, ‘The Economist’, ‘Washington Post’ i.e. Wisdom, Intelligentsia, Intellectual were then and still are forums. There is a misconception in India that like India, America and Britain also have newspapers and magazines, but it is not so. They are now in digital format. American people are reading ‘The New York Times’ etc online for a monthly fee. Due to this this newspaper was happy then and still is today. Even then it was the American home of information-original knowledge and still is today. The writers of these journals are Nobel Prize winning economists, scientists, thinkers, experts of different subjects, creator-critics from art-literature-culture and also known-critics of history, society, religion. The investigative reporter-journalist who takes the news of government, legislature, judiciary, system is good.

In this awareness and legacy, the ideas of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Churchill were made, they became great heroes and Albert Einstein a prophet. It believes that only intelligentsia is the true digger of the history of a nation, making the present a garden of hundred flowers, while worrying about the future as space-goers or the earth. Understand this truth with a recent example. Recently there was a gathering to save the earth in Glasgow? Think, from whom did it become aware? From Global Media! Think in the same way, who was or is maintaining the global discourse before the dictatorship of communism and now the challenge of Islam? So what are the answers not to magazines? To become a gangotri of journalism and intellect and thought through it is possible only through intelligence!

Only then think how big is the role of intelligence and its carrier media, journalism. And India in this? Completely empty and empty! Whatever was there during the British period is also over. Think, during the British period, journalism from Tilak to Gandhi was fighting for truth along with struggle. When independence was achieved because of that, after that the newspapers and magazines had to consider the goals of the country frankly, fearlessly. Awareness had to be created among the people, but in the journalism of this single rhetoric devoted to the angelic-charismatic Pandit Nehru, in the journalism of ‘Age Mr. Nehru rightly said…’ and now that Bhakti period, in which Narendra Modi owns everything. Same headline, same debate, same idea, same knowledge-science, one master of journalism! ….it does not mean that 75 years of journalism remain the same. Not at all. In the rise and fall of independence, Indian journalism had to creep up, then it also became courageous and then in the preparations for the battle of Panipat, the form of a cock fight of dedication. More on this next week.
