Content in context
Lately, negative news is being increasingly sensationalised on all fronts. Sometimes this crosses boundaries and hinders breakthroughs in official investigations. While this cannot be officially controlled or regulated in an open democracy like ours, there is need to reduce further damage to the social equilibrium.
When the environment is charged with suspicion and mutual hatred, the goverment in power has to be more cautious to be seen as impartial and secular. It is in this context that though Prime Minister Modi’s assertion, “toilets first, temples can wait”, was accepted, forcing all students to listen to this speech didn’t get uniform acceptance across geographies. In such situations, not only the content, but the context too become relevant.
