The Indian Media Circus

With the world at a standstill, media remains the only point of contact with the outside world for many of us. The internet has given us great power. Social media even more so. One post done right can raise an important issue, and one post gone wrong can destroy lives. And guess what- we, yes all of us- we possess that power to make or break something. Often I see that the content of today’s media consumes us more than we consume it.

NOT ALL MEN ARE DOGS

Whenever a societal group is being talked about as a whole, we talk about the majority of it, and not each individual. When women are ranting about men ruining their lives, they are talking about the sexist, oppressive world and not ranting about a particular person. Men, when being referred to as such, is in a connotation of patriarchal men; men because of whom women cannot go for a stroll alone at night. Notice how I used ‘we’ and ‘alone’ there in the same sentence? Because women, doesn’t matter how many, are always alone without a male presence; that’s internalized patriarchy
