Moral or immoral ?????????

January 4, 2010 at 10:58 pm 31 comments

If a male and female stay in a house \room\office for few hours together. Then is that considered as immoral traffic? If it is yes then many of us can’t even count how many times we did this ‘immoral’. The recent controversy\hot news at Kerala prompts me to think about this. Though the police arrested them(AICC member raj mohan unnithan and the lady, who is a Seva Dal worker) under the charges of immoral trafficking, even after almost two weeks neither the medical report nor the officials confirm they did it. Past few days, some newspapers and channels were literally ‘celebrating’ this ‘hot news’ and flashing the snaps and videos of accused frequently. Some media even didn’t show the basic decency for blurring the accused lady’s image, before showing it out to public. I’m neither a supporter of Rajmohan Unnithan nor trying to support him or trying to glorify immoral trafficking. But my question is if they come out with a clean chit later, who will pay for the mental trauma they faced. Will these so called Medias restore the honour of that lady??? .I don’t know. It is a sad fact that, for the sake of TRP’s and cheap publicity our Medias are mindlessly and ‘creatively’ deforming the news. Yesterday I read an article that cpm made him a scapegoat for curbing the rising popularity of congress in Kerala (anyways that is a big joke).So my question is in the court if they admit that they had consensual sex, then what is going to happen? (As both of them are not minors, I guess court will send them free).Such a wastage of time and energy. These so called Medias could have used that time for airing something better. I’m against all sex tourism\trade, sex trafficking, high tech prostitution and all. Yeah for forming a good culture, better society it is the duty of media(not only media but also officials , civilians etc) to expose it and curb it from the root .But that doesn’t mean to go after some silly cheap news and deform it and feed them with unnecessary masalas and wasting there precious time .Don’t know what to say

    How well said!

    Thought I dont have an inch of sympathy for the Unnithan man, the case is void. Two adults travelling or living together is no crime in India. It was a political play and Unnithan fell into the trap. But yeah, a masala story for the media which heated things up for a while… served the purpose..

    • 2. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 11:17 am

      lol 🙂 …even i think unnithan fell into the trap.Seems he was caught by CPM and PDP workers from that house.
      For we mallus politics are like alcohol…..May be thats the reason why media heated this thing up and carried it for almost 1 week

  • 3. Vimmuuu  |  January 5, 2010 at 2:39 am

    Let the truth come out, until then lets all not get biased on either sides ! and as you said, hope media has some better things to do than cover 3rd rate useless stuffs like this ! manjha pathram maadiri ippo manjha news channels um !!! kashtam thanne ee raajyathinte kaaryam !

    • 4. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 11:14 am

      Exactly vimmu .It is such a sad factor that many of our medias are feeding us literally ‘manjha’ newses

  • 5. sakshi  |  January 5, 2010 at 5:41 am

    SIGH!!! it’s yet again the frenzy for a reality circus both by media and some stupid hungry audiences.

    Btw Happy new year to you

    • 6. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 11:12 am

      Hey happy New year to you too sakshi , have fun 🙂

    What is high-tech prostitution?

    I think it is “consensual” sex instead of conceptual sex. 🙂

    • 8. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 11:11 am

      Thanks nona for pointing that, i corrected it 🙂

      high-tech prostitution – Something like prostitution with the help of social networking sites and all (source – Manorama)

  • 9. Dreamer  |  January 5, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    I agree with you, Anish. It was one of the most irresponsible piece of reporting in recent times. I fail to see the point of it. Rajmohan Unnithan does not even hold a sensitive govt. post or something that could be compromised by such behavior. It was quite unnecessary to make such a bid deal of it. And I am so not a Congress or Unnithan sympathizer.

    • 10. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 1:57 pm

      Dreamer ,that is my point…what was there in that for showing as exclusive news for a week.Even after 2 weeks no one is telling what is the truth behind that…what to say pathetic,so cheap…

  • 11. Swaram  |  January 5, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    if they come out with a clean chit later, who will pay for the mental trauma they faced – Exactly what I feel abt such masala news!

    N abt media .. the less said the better! TRPs govern everything that they do .. ppl hv to stop watching all this masala too .. what wud they air such pgms for then?

    • 12. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 1:55 pm

      Swaram I think people(unlike few of us) like these kinda masalas…else y the heck they are keep on doing the same…i don’t know

  • 13. Smita  |  January 5, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    I have been ranting on this topic for long but am yet to see any improvement!!! But yes I can see things going worsening!!!

    You know few months back a man had been released, freed & acquitted off the chrages of raping her daughter! He was in jail for 5+ years, was convicted by the media there n then. The truth that came out was that since he had not allowed her daughter to party she falsely implicated him!! Now when the truth came out the news was on 5th-6th page!! Why? Will he get the respect back? Nah!

    Our media doesn’t believe in checking out facts, it believes in Me First concept!!! They know that audience is fool & have limited memory!!!

    • 14. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 1:54 pm

      It was so sad….same with Arushi case also right..I still remember a prominent news channel shown graphs and sketches about how her father murdered her.

      It is not gonna change 😦

  • 15. kanagu  |  January 5, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    media is not reporting the news.. they are just selling them…. from a business man you will always get the saleable product not the one which helps his customer… 😐 😐

    • 16. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 7:45 pm

      Exactly , U said it Kanagu….But i think even people like these kinda news, else why they are keep on airing these kinda non senses

  • 17. Happy Kitten  |  January 5, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    Guess Anish it was something like this.. “than kuzhicha kuzhiyil than thanne veenu”… for politicians like Unnithan who is always given voice by this same media, this was the untimate fall..

    Let us all hope for a better media and viewers 🙂 too…

    • 18. anishthomas  |  January 5, 2010 at 7:41 pm

      He he , But don’t you think that was just a trap made by his political opponents 🙂

      yeah lets hope we will get a more sensible media and viewers he he 🙂

  • 19. Sorcerer  |  January 6, 2010 at 5:55 pm


    This is some kind of political magic show..
    wow!! I loved the sound effects

    • 20. anishthomas  |  January 6, 2010 at 8:04 pm

      Hey Sorcerer welcome here 🙂 ,
      lol but don’t u think the sound effects was quite too much 😀

  • 21. Suji!  |  January 7, 2010 at 11:52 am

    I think the bigger point you are trying to make here is the way Media works in the present world. I truly agree with you – Media can make and break people! There is nothing called ethics in media industry any more. Any news that catches the eye balls, the media guys are all in all for it.

    An alligention comes, and no investigation is done and the media already tags and labels them. I guess this is really misuse and abuse of ‘freedom of speech’.

    • 22. anishthomas  |  January 9, 2010 at 8:34 pm

      An alligention comes, and no investigation is done …..Many people find this entertaining……..that is the reason they keep on serving us this.
      and at misuse of ‘freedom of speech’ – one good example is love jihad

  • 23. Destiny's Child  |  January 7, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    The media hounds definitely need something better to cover. Yesterday there was a one hour special of some goddamned movie of Kalabhavan Mani. Is there really nothing better to show? Sigh!

    • 24. anishthomas  |  January 9, 2010 at 8:34 pm

      What de heck 😀 😀 …..D C, can’t believe still people can stand to Kalabhan mani’s loud acting

  • 25. Smitha  |  January 13, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Our media has a way of adding spice to everything. They don’t care beyond increasing their TRPs! Sad! I so wish the media would indulge in sensible and responsible reporting as opposed to scandal mongering 😦

    • 26. anishthomas  |  January 16, 2010 at 9:08 am

      Smitha ,They will serve what mass needed or in fact they will decide what the public should watch 😦 …it is not gonna change

  • 27. Aarti  |  January 17, 2010 at 8:32 pm

      hey it was such a cool meeting with u guys….in fact i wished we would have got some more time 😀

  • 29. Indian Homemaker  |  January 18, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    I find our media and our police love to sensationalise any news related to any relationship between a man and a woman.
    I agree with you – if it turns out “in the court if they admit that they had consensual sex, then what is going to happen?” Then I hope they take the media to court for defamation.

    me : It is india, so all these things will happen and it is never gonna change 😦

    • 30. Indian Homemaker  |  January 18, 2010 at 7:14 pm

      Not sure if they can – or what the legalities here entail…

      • 31. anishthomas  |  January 18, 2010 at 8:16 pm

        IHM . I’m told that they can file legal notice against them.Yesterday Raj Mohan Unnithan got clean chit from congress enquiry committee(leaded by NP Mouideen ).Bit busy now, will reply in detail later 🙂 ……
