We are into 2014. Old order changeth yielding place to the new. So, its WISHING ALL OUR READERS, PATRONS & WELL WISHERS A GREAT NEW YEAR. Hope there is peace and contentment all over the living world. Year 2013, that went by, had all the making of a commercial potboiler from the tinsel world. From sense to nonsense, bizarre to macabre, greatness to downright meanness.
From the ever present Kaavery river water dispute to the emergence of Aam Aadmi Party in the evolving electoral politics of the country, from imprisonment of Sanjay Dutt & those misplaced appeals for his pardon, from CBI being castigated as Caged Bird of India by the Supreme Court to deadly naxal attacks in Chhattisgarh, from the larger than life appearance of Narendra Modi in the national politics to the controversial Bharath Ratna to cricketer Tendulkar, there has been development of all kinds, significant and insignificant. And the country completed 12 months of governance that was riddled with corruption of gargantuan kind which ended with the most uncharitable barb on Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh. The observation in media space that ‘Manmohan Singh has proved that India does not need a Prime Minister’, was the ‘unkindest cut of all’. But that probably was the reflection of public sentiment on the ground.
Looking over the month that went by, we have tried to cover the happenings to the extent possible within the space constraint of Month-in-Perspective.
However, one of the most horrific incident that happened in Hyatt Regency, an up market hotel complex in Goa took the media savvy Indian public completely by shock and disbelief. That it could happen between two non-consenting adults from the fourth estate made it all the more bizarre. We have tried to cover the alleged sexapade in Focus. Hope readers would find it interesting. Do revert with your considered opinion. We do value it.
