International Newspapers have #KeralaFloods on Front page, while TOI has no news.
Similarly the Front pages of Times Group owned newspapers ( The Economic Times, Vijaya Karnataka and Navbharat Times) had no news about Kerala Floods on Sat 18 Aug.

Times of India then has the Audacity to mock Kerala through a Cartoon.

Such a Beautiful Newspaper.
The Hindu, HT, Telegraph, Deccan Chronicle had news about Kerala News on its Front page on Sat 18 Aug

TOI gave the news on a Front flap. Nice.
This is the reason why Majority Malayalis had the similar sentiment that the National Media is totally ignoring the Kerala Floods.

It was only on Day 9 (Aug 17) and Day 10th (Aug 18) of the #KeralaFloods that many opened their eyes.

Kerala, Kodagu, North East and Tamil Nadu all are parts of India. When Floods or Cyclones like Ockhi cause havoc, its the duty of the National Media to report it orelse remove that National tag.

"The farther you are from Delhi, the less you matter to us" attitude has to stop.

The Partition of India or to be more accurate, the partition of Punjab & Bengal proved to be a blessing in disguise for Hindi & Urdu. Why?

Majority (above 70%) Indian Freedom Fighters were from Punjab & Bengal. Andaman Jail was filled with Bengali revolutionaries.

Had we (British India) stayed united, there would have been twice the number of Punjabi speakers and thrice the number of Bangla speakers.

India would have had Four major Languages : Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi and Bengali.
Though Hindi/Urdu speakers would have still been slightly more than everyone else, the much greater number of Punjabi & Bangla speakers would have ensured that the Central Government wouldn't have adopted Hindi/Urdu as one of its official languages.

These revelations are part of the long-awaited results of an excavation conducted in 2015 by a team led by Dr Vasant Shinde, an archaeologist & vice chancellor of Pune's Deccan College
What our DNA tells us instead is that while India witnessed phases of extensive genetic mixing for a millennium after the collapse of the Indus Valley Civilisation, this was followed by a long period of deep endogamy - which has been a uniquely unhealthy stamp of the subcontinent

Fact 1 : Kerala only has 58 Dams, not 80.

Fact 2 : On Aug 22nd 2018, NASA in its official statement said that Kerala floods occured due to cloud bands in Western Ghats.

Now the Indian Media is using a quote of Sujay V Kumar from an article which says Kerala has 80 Dams.
Kottayam in central Kerala is all set to be the new hub of dam safety, monitoring the security and carrying out the maintenance of the 58 dams in the state....

Mathrubhumi has given a correction.

Many media outlets yesterday fell for this news.
