It should be called North Indian Media, not National Media !!!

In a short period of 3 weeks, the City of Chennai also the Capital of Tamil Nadu has seen nearly 500 mm of rains which is ravaging normal human life and no one except the local Media houses / Social Media like Facebook and Twitter has done anything to highlight the plight of Chennaiites. The so called National Media houses like Times Now, India Today, NDTV, CNN IBN, AAJ Tak, Zee News etc etc have not only completely ignored show casing this news but are busy debating to glory about the following:

1) Intricacies of Love/Sex & Dhoka in the life of Mukerjeas together with their daily bathroom routines

2) Covering every statement of Aamir Khan regarding how his wife wishes to move out of India for cheap publicity

3) Reports of how many more pseudo intellectuals are returning one award or another.

Let me quote a couple of simple examples where these so called National Media swung into action:

1) Uttarakhand Disaster in 2013

2) Jammu & Kashmir Floods in 2014

3) Nepal Earthquake in 2015

During the above mentioned disasters these Media houses did bathe themselves in TRP but also did quite a lot of public help by displaying frequent Disaster toll free Numbers, Relief works being done in various camps, List of Survivors in various camps, Urged the Center Government of the day to announce this as a National Disaster and also showcased few moments of courage by the local public in order to keep their morale high. But where are you guys during Chennai Rains?

You even ended up covering Nepal’s disaster but conveniently forgotten Chennai which as per my geographical knowledge still lies inside India. Not only did all these so call news channels prove themselves to be worthless when it comes to South India but you have simple re-branded yourselves as North Indian Media and not National Media. Even though every Indian’s heart will go out for all Chennaiites who have displayed tremendous courage and valor during such times of hardships, the task of showcasing them for motivation still is the moral responsibility of our Media houses. This time the so call National Media houses have not only failed miserably but have even lost the capacity to see Chennai and its citizens eye to eye.

In-spite of all these shortcomings Chennai has striven to prove its mettle and my prayer goes out to every person in Chennai to overcome these traumatic times.
