In visual and print media, everyday we find highlighted news about rape, molestation, murder, suicide, dacoity as well as corruption.
Has the country become so bad that only such disturbing incidents are happening every day? Certainly, it is not so.
There are many achievements, praise worthy efforts, magnanimous acts happening in the country and thought provoking views that are rarely highlighted and many times not covered at all.
The fact is that the visual and print media chase only bad and disturbing news and progressive happenings are not of particular interest to them. Editors foolishly think that only coverage of sensational and disturbing news will help them to improve their circulation and sustain the interest of the viewers.
Unfortunately, most of the editors of visual and print media do not understand or do not care that exclusive highlighting of bad events affect the morale of the country men, shake the confidence of the people in the future of the country and embolden the corrupt persons and criminals to continue their activities and finally creating a condition where people particularly youth become insensitive to the negative happenings in the country.
It is high time that a movement should be launched in the social media against negativism in the Indian print and visual media.
