By mistake, I checked Deccan Chronicle online newspaper. If you havent checked today's edition, then please refrain from doing so. I thought that it was really disgusting of them to have a frontpage photo of the daughters of Suryanarayana (who was beheaded by Taliban, supposedly) crying badly, and the relatives trying to pacify them.
Why the shit does media want to make money out of somebody's misery/tragedy? They reported about the death, the threats, the compensation, about everything.. fine. But do they have to stoop down to such low levels so as to take a picture of the poor kids crying? And how could the insane photographer take a picture at such moment? I know.. he has to sell his paper like hot cakes.. what more to do than take a few pics, huh?.. leave some people alone atleast during some moments.. what next can I expect? Amitabh's pic on mainpage taking a dump? WTF happened to privacy? Why wo they have to report about eveything, esp. the crying? Can't somethings be away from limelight and public attention? Wont anybody want to cry alone or with their near-n-dear? Who would like to cry before the lens? And what would one think when one is crying and sees that he/she is being photographed? BREAK the damn thing and kick the photographer's butt and rip his balls. What are they achieving? Gaining sympathy? No, you are selling our sympathy to them, and making money, which is WRONG.
My rant: "Leave people alone, and DONT make money out of somebody's misery. If you do, it will haunt you badly, and there would be more people laughing their asses of when you fall into one. Mark my words."
PS: I havent included the link or the picture for obvious reasons. Hope I get the message across.
