I understand the value of lives and would mourn with people who lost their life in Taj and Oberoi of Mumbai and CST. I read this blog "Hotel Taj : icon of whose India ? Gnani Sankaran- Tamil writer, Chennai"
The article states that it is not politicians who try to make benefits out of the Mumbai terrorist episode, but TV channels too are interested in talking about the rich and mighty and do not spend much time with the blasts in CST and the common people including employees who lost their lives in these hotels.
I agree with the statement "Why should Arnab and Rajdeep and Barkha keep harping every five minutes that this piece of information was exclusive to their channel, at the time of such a national crisis? Is
this the time to promote the channel? If that is valid, the politician promoting his own political constituency is equally valid".
I personally felt that the TV channels were actually spreading the fear of terror from the hotel site to all of India. Effectively the TV channels helped the terrorists to spread the fear of terror.
