This is one such newspaper that revolutionised the printed media in Bangalore. It was Mirror all the way. People started moving away from traditional newspapers like The Times of India and Deccan Herald. Initially the sleek layout of Bangalore Mirror made it popular among travellers. It contained a lot of masala stories that attracted many youths. You would find this one paper always busy in my college library while the traditiional ones had no takers.
Too much of success is not good. Bangalore Mirror started publishing non-sense news offlate. The headline would be a theft or murder that happened in some remote village. For example, The headline of 27-Nov-2008 did not have the Mumbai attacks of 26/11.
Yesterday, I came across this new section “Vote Maadi” – an election special section that provides the lastest on the Lok Sabha elections due in 15 days time. I was shocked to read POLL DANCE by Aakar Patel in there. I do not know whether this was written for fun or anything else, but this surely hurt me. The column said Top 10 things BJP will do for you.
Mr. Aakar Patel, do you ever know the consequence of writing such non-sense. If you cannot write good about somebody shut your f#^king mouth and drop that damn pen down. BJP is no way involved in attacking/beating up women. How on planet earth did you conclude that BJP will set Kashmir on fire? Why would a party that believes in peace and harmony go and bomb Pakistan? I fail to understand why people associate BJP with such criminal activites and anti-society deeds. And finally, why would BJP ever copy Manmohanomics that does not have a single achievement to boast of.
Shame on you Mr. Patel and Bangalore Mirror for publishing such columns. This indeed is the sad state on Indian media that journalists like Patel and editors of such major newspapers behave in this manner. My sincere request to the people of INDIA to ignore such misleading newspapers and elect BJP for a progressive nation.
