I was reading the headlines in The Times of India this morning. And the front page top story was about something called iridium mixed in the gold that is sold across the country.
The first thing that crossed my mind was why did it become the front page story? Was it because big brands like Tanishq, Sangini or the likes want to eliminate small players from the market?
Can we trust everything that we read in a newspaper of see on news channels?
We have had multiple terrorist attacks in the country. Was was 26/11 bigger than all others? Was it because industry heavy weights were in the line of fire this time? And they flexed their muscles on the media?
Again we can only speculate.
But in today's world a reader needs to keep his mind open. And u need to read more than two newspapers daily to keep yourself up to date on various issues without a bias.
Too much to ask on a working day. Isn't? But than the truth is not a like a thread on an old tapestry, that u pull a thread and it unspools and falls at your feet. You have to look for it in ways more than one at times.
Whats your take on the issue?
