Hostile attitude towards media: an alarming trend in Bengal


bnSurely local media specially local TV stations had done a commendable job of covering Kolkata civic election marred by sporadic violence and malpractices. Live video footage clearly showed that that ruling TMC activists prevented voters and opposition  leaders to enter polling booths while their leaders and supporters allowed to roam around.They openly helped voters to cast their votes in favor of party candidates as police personnel looked the other way.

Even the media persons were not spared.They were threatened and abused by TMC leaders and party workers when they rushed to cover the news of booth capturing and violence. The journalists of ABP Ananda a solid number one in Calcutta were openly threatened with dire consequence. An assistant commissioner of police abused a reporter of the same TV station on camera when he asked some ‘uneasy’ questions to him.

Tensions ran high in major booths and a policemen was severely injured. Despite sporadic violence and allegation  of ‘calculated booth capturing’, TMC leaders were unfazed and termed the allegations  as baseless. Actually, political leaders don’t have the habit to hear criticism and often ignore the fact that Media is the fourth pillar of democracy due to important role it plays in shaping public opinion.

Politicians should remember that journalists have the  right to act as eyes and ears of the public.In Indian democracy, to win an election by hook or crook is more important than good governance. Hostile attitudes towards media is a dangerous and alarming trend. Polarization even in media, saddens me the most. TV stations who are not actually market leaders in news try to appease the ruling  party by playing the roll of mouth piece of the party.

Bengalis across the world say Happy New Year to You


snEvery year, thousands of people including devotees and traders queue up in front of various Temples like Kalighat (Temple of goddess Kali), Dakhenaswar Kali temple. On this auspicious day, traders offer special pujas (prayer) to Lord Ganesha (elephant headed God of Business) and open new financial book (Haal khata).

The Occasion: Bengalis from around the world are celebrating New Year’s day (Poila Baisakh) today on the first day of  the month of Baikash. Local TV stations of Calcutta broadcast special programs on this occassion throughout the day.

Though,for many Bengalis Poila Baisakh may only mean a holiday, most of them enjoy special preparation of fishes like their favorite Hisha. With inflation is still high, everything from rice to mustard oil, meat, pulses is dearer, most Bengalis have been forced to cut down their elaborate celebration plan. Bengalis wishes each other with ‘SUVO NAVA VARSHA (Happy New Year) Eating out is a must for many Bengalis on this special day.

Restaurants arrange special menus to attract customers. Being an auspicious day,every Bengali wants to enjoy this special day in a big way. Special cultural programs are arranged at Sovabazar Rajbari(erstwhile landlord of Sovabazar) in North Calcutta to mark Piola Baikash.

Elections for Kolkata Municipal corporation (KMC) and 92 other municipalities or urban self-governing bodies in various parts of West Bengal will be held on April 18 and 25 receptively People themselves exercise the local affairs either directly or through their elected representatives.The Corporation and the Municipalities are recognized as the Urban self-governing institutions.The Calcutta Corporation has been constituted and regulated by the Calcutta Municipal Act 1980.The Calcutta Municipal (Amendment) Act says the Councillors of the Corporation are elected on the basis of universal adult franchise.Calcutta has been divided into 141 wards.One Councillor is elected for each ward.The mayor is elected by the Councillors for five years.The Mayor-in-Council consists of the Mayor,the Deputy Mayor and ten Councillors.

In 2010,TMC got absolute majority (95 out of 141) to form the board in Calcutta Municipal Corporation.Later, in the Assembly election 2011,Bengal voted decisively against the Marxist led Left Front and TMC came to power.But four years of TMC rule,the party has become synonymous with scams,observed Opposition leaders.according to political observers,despite corruption charges against the Mamata Banarjee led government and  the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, the party will retain it’s firm grip on power in April local body elections.In 2010, Calcutta and neighboring Salt Lake changed their color from red to green.The trend of the last municipal elections will repeated again.But,the party is likely to face a tough challenge from the Left and BJP.

The same path

It seems that the ruling party of Bengal follows more the technique of its predecessor Communist Party of India(Marxist) led left coalition who ruled the state for 34 years.

The activities of the Trinamool Congress(TMC) government led by Mamata Banarjee remind me the notion that people don’t criticize themselves for anything. A slightly modified version of the famous quote Don’t be afraid of people who attack you, but be afraid of people who flatter you is Falsely implicated people who attack you and rewarded with high positions who flatter you.

Much the same goes for politicians:

Always remember that you are not from the Mars.

Politicians enjoy the same kind of privileges where manners are concerned.

Always treat people the way you like to be treated.

They (Politicians) are not here to merely make a living.

The documentary film “India’s Daughter,” about the brutal rape and murder of a 23-year-old in Delhi in 2012, held its U.S. premiere in New York recently. India has banned the documentary, which details how Mukesh Singh,Akshyay Thakur, Pavan Gupta and others including a juvenile gang-raped the medical student on a bus and left her for dead after she left a movie theater with a male friend. Millions have watched the film online and it is being broadcast across the world. On December 16, a 23 year old para- medical student with her fiance while returning home after watching a movie was brutally gang raped in a moving bus and thrown out of the bus along with her male companion after brutally bitten by iron rod by five young men. Angry protesters fought pitched battles with the police to vent their anger against the lawlessness and government’s failure to protect it’s own citizen, resulting the death of a police man. She succumbed to her injuries at a Singapore hospital where she fought for her life after flown from a New Delhi hospital.Candle light vigil and clashes with the police and mere banning of a film which explores the mindset of convicts to vent our anger cannot change the overall outlook about women in the Indian society. Girls are somewhat more  abused than boys. According to World Health organization (WHO),150 million girls have been subjected to sexual violence including forced sexual intercourse. Mr Pranab Mukherjee, the President of India  had rightly said that everyone in society should learn to respect women. Failure to do so is resulting in incidents like New Delhi gang rape. Apart from creating  strong criminal laws, fast track courts, strong and active police force, increasing awareness is necessary to curb  violence against women. Society should learn to respect women first. In the name of dignity of women, incidents of moral policing have been on the rise.Voice of America(VOA)’s Henry Ridgwell has this report from London.Courtesy: VOA
