I've never been a fan as such of Barkha Dutt but time was when I was younger and appreciated the dreams she got my generation of girls to dream. Then I grew up. The Mumbai attacks happened. And for the first time I watched, really watched the Dutt on tv. Watched as an adult and noticed how she bullied her camera guy around. For a while I tried to tell myself that she was probably dealing with an inept rookie and getting impatient but you know, it's easy to spot a bully.
It made sense, all the stories from all the people I know who've ever had to work sharing her space.
And now I see she's a bully elsewhere, too. Like all bullies with half a brain, she's got the people in charge thinking she's a person to support.
I've had a few kids try to bully my son. They soon found out to their discomfiture that I was keeping an eye on their nastiness. Who's going to show NDTV that they are being watched, too, and are headed for trouble? You? As an Indian who is unwilling to give up her right to free speech, I request you to please take the trouble to check out the links in this post. If you're a blogger, state an opinion.
