Looks like it is time to move this thread on #NDTV forward!
This reminds me of a dialogue from the game GTA II which I used to play sometime in the last decade - 'REMEMBER, RESPECT IS EVERYTHING'!
Oh, and the single quotes for 'respect' .. if that cannot make you fall in love with the good folks manning the #NDTV offices, nothing will!
Sometimes I wonder would an allegedly renowned media house so proudly quote 'Foreign Media' in the main headline IN ADDITION to the usual disclaimer at the end of the report.. But then I tell myself, it is #NDTV!
Disclaimer: The screenshot on left on 'Abusive Handles' is in no way related to the screenshot of a couple of tweets of the #NDTV anchor.
I just felt I should post them here together, on a whim.
Facts are facts .. however, what is a few words in Queen's English here and there if it suits our narrative, this time about the role of the State as represented by it's police force, hainji?
If only 'Jumping to Conclusions' were an Olympic event, we'd never have any dearth of medals!
This screenshot, I'll just leave over here in this thread without any comments
Ah, this one reminded me of the hashtag #HafizKiBarkha, and the outrage it caused - both secular as well as communal!
Thank God for Twitter!
Aise editorial errors ho jaate hain kabhi kabhi!
A brutally polite lesson in tolerance!
Incidentally, I'm unable to find the original tweet of Barkha Ji that triggered this convo .. it might be my browser, or the tweet might have been deleted for all I know!
I wonder what triggered this hashtag about #NDTV .. but some of the responses are truly 'hilarious'!
It is no secret that the Pakistani establishment is not very happy with @TarekFatah, but #NDTV too???
But, trust @TarekFatah to give it back in his own way!
It was allegedly a bug which caused this on the #NDTV website!
(PS: Click on the screenshot to see the full story)
Damn those 'editorial gaffes' .. they never stop!
But the best part is that this tweet by #NDTV STILL hasn't been taken down and amended!
Well, atleast they give image credits at the end of the tweet!!
The #NDTV tweet quoted by @muglikar_ might indeed be yet another 'innocent editorial error' for all we know, but then, he is not the only one calling it otherwise!
PAID audience?
Now whoever heard about that!
Sab miley hue hain ji .. this is not fake applause .. there is a perfect explanation for it given more than a century ago by Shri Hermann Minkowski Ji.
THAT is how the fellow is asking the ques & clapping at the same time!
Fetish with single quotes is quite understandable, but the word 'suspect' in any case means things are not confirmed. Why put that in single quotes?
Chalo, small mercy that the word 'alleged' didn't figure in this report!
For the nth time .. #NDTV has NO double standards whatsoever .. they have just one standard .. Got that??
If there is one thing you can't blame the good folks at #NDTV for, it is CONFIDENCE!
I will sign off on this thread for the time being with this VERY interesting conversation that a star #NDTV anchor had with @amritabhinder
I am assuming there were no lawsuits filed, though!

Folks, sharing some thoughts on the recent brouhaha over the dragging of a dead Paki terrorist's body by own army men.
Funny, how all that 'outrage' died in less than 48 hours, no? Says a lot about the 'outrage' walas. But will leave that topic for some other day.
First things first - War is a deadly business (no pun intended).
And the Indian Army has been fighting this war for three decades now. It has faced countless charges of HR violations by the usual suspects, not more than a handful of which have successfully withstood scrutiny.
Even the graves of all provocations have not been able to break this core value by which they operate.
Heck, even in the Kargil war, even after seeing the mutilation inflicted upon Saurabh Kalia and his men, the Indian Army still chose to return the mortal remains of ..

Folks, sharing the story of Capt Manoj Kumar Pandey, PVC (Posth)
He was martyred on 03 July 1999, but he'd seen much action before that too
This day in 1999, a young Captain by the name of Manoj Pandey was going gung ho, clearing Pakis in Khalubar.
Little would he have ..
.. have known that he had just about 41 days more in this world, before he attained martyrdom and immortal fame ..

In light of this statement on the issue of Ravi river waters flowing untapped into Pakistan by @capt_amarinder, replugging an old thread chronicling my own thoughts on the same.
Ravi River waters belong to India as per Indus Water Treaty, yet the last headwork to divert waters of this river that India has is ..
.. at Madhopur (near Kathua), a cool 126 km as the crow flies from the point where the river finally flows out of India near Lahore!
