Soliloquy of a media person dr shriniwas kashalikar
A Media Person
If you were to listen to the introspective
soliloquy of an honest media person, what
would you find?
“The media is supposed to be not merely
factual but it has to be realistic. Reality is
that which transcends what merely happens
or merely appears. Reality is the direction of
future events. Realistic means; having the
vision of this blossoming future amidst what
is apparent, confusing, depressing or
maddening! Media has to express explicitly
and convincingly; it’s profound and clear
vision of this blossoming of the billions and
realization of their sublime aspirations all
around the world.
I am aware of this. But it is not easy to do
what you want to do. You are usually
dragged by your instincts, passions,
temptations, vested interests, pressures and
so on. We media persons are most likely to
get enamored by the glamour and glitter to
which we are always exposed and therefore
are likely to get mislead by it! In turn we are
likely to mislead the others! We media people
are also exposed to and are likely to be
affected by the daily petty politics of power
and its frenzy.
In fact we media people seem to be caught in
the unending pressures of the glamour,
glitter, petty politics; of opportunism and
power, nuisance value, cynicism, personal
temptations and so on.
We seem to lose the vision of blossoming of
our own and that of the mankind, in the
course of our job! We seem to get
degenerated in that sense!
But it is important to note that everyone
including us, the media people who are
shrouded by the forces of degeneration; have
a definite and realistic hope!
This realistic hope comes from
NAMASMARAN, which is remembering
your true self. NAMASMARAN can protect
us; the media persons just as everyone else;
from the disturbing and stupefying illusions
and delusions created by rapidly changing
environment inside and outside!
