DON'T BREAK THE NEWS

"The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses."

How did I came to know about Barrack Obama? How did I came to know about Osama Bin laden? How did I came to know about the difference between Obama and Osama? The answer is simple and clear. It is the media which gave me all the required knowledge and information so that I could understand this world clearly. When you start thinking in this way then you come to know that how much important and vital role does media plays in our life. Media is no other individual but a medium through which we get the news from all around the planet. But the question arises here - " Is the media really providing justice to the role assigned to them?" you do not need to find the answer of this question anywhere as the answer is here too.

First of all, we should not forget that media has done an excellent job by finding out those people or officials who have spoiled the names of our country in the commonwealth games scam. It is because of media only that three of the administrative officers of commonwealth games are expelled. Preparations are fastened and the Indian government now has started thinking about the completion of commonwealth games successfully. But is this what commonwealth games stand for? Why had Media suddenly became so tensed about commonwealth games and that too just 4 months before the schedule commencement of the games?

In all the newspapers or t v coverage, I cannot find the games and sports men, all I can see is discussions and debates about the controversy. What is the Media(TV) doing by calling all the organizing committee officials one by one in the studio and grilling them. There is no doubt that whatever wrong had been done should be handled very strictly, but is this the right time to think about all these things? When most of the officers should be working day and night to make these games successful, they are spending most of the time in answering all the queries put up by the media. If we talk to anyone then more than games, he or she would talk about the commonwealth games scam. Many of the top leaders, sportsperson share the same view that india should have not given the opportunity to host the games but at this point of time, can we take a step back! I think nothing can be as shameful as this if we even think about it.

Instead of talking about the leakage in the ceiling in one portion of the Nehru stadium, can we please talk about what all we have done. As a media, can we tell people that how the grass is being brought to the stadium from Hapur which is a tremendous task. Australian OC chairman has said in an interview that infrastructure wise, India is going to host the best commonwealth games of all times. As I have said earlier too that media has done an excellent job by revealing the truth. But revealing the truth or getting stuck to a news for TRP's on the sake of country's image is not acceptable.

It is my humblest request to the media, to the people of Delhi and India and to everyone who thinks negatively about these Games that let us not waste our time and energy on the controversies shrouding the Games. But let us focus on the games and try to make it a successful event in our way. Let us keep all these allegations and accusations to be discussed and investigated after the completion of the Games. Let us motivate the world to come out and play with the spirit of sports. Commonwealth Games are not merely just a stepping stone for our country to the success but it is an exhortation to the people to set new records, to outperform, and to raise the bar by sealing new peaks of achievement. It is a call to the people of Delhi and the rest of India to come out in support of the Games and play the perfect host at the 19th Commonwealth Games, Delhi 2010. We all know that this is possible only if we start to think in this way and media plays a huge role in developing viewer's point of view.

In the end, I want to say only one thing that "WELL DONE MEDIA" as the truth came outside but for the mean time please wait until every tourist and sports lover after watching the commonwealth games says, "WELL DONE INDIA."
