Yeah, it really is about the newspaper. Todays's newspaper to be more precise. Times of India, to be even more precise.
For the first time in about a few months, on reading the newspaper, I felt that it contained something positive. Something to ignite the spark. Something that is different from the usual "so and so died", "these many deaths", "he raped her", "burglary in this area", "murder in this", so on and so forth. Today was a little different.
While the results of IIT-JEE stand declared, there arose a name, Sahal Kaushik, a mere 14 year old kid who cracked the toughest exam ever. I was quite amazed at the little boy and his modesty after he hit the jackpot. I mean, its IIT-JEE for Christ sake. IIT-JEE. And he is just 14. Perhaps, atleast 3 years younger than any average students writing the exam. This is what I call news. This is what needs to be shared. I don't know why the media doesn't talk about people like Sahal more often. Why is it that the newspapers have all but these miraculous cases. I don't think that the newpapers are doing any good by publishing about the thefts, burglary, murders, accidents and the like. The only reason I can make out of all this is that it makes people more vigilant. But whats the point in scaring people. Why can't we get to read something that would make us proud.
There was another thing that caught my eye today. Nudity. Well yeah, you read that right. If you want Maradona to run naked on the field, then go ahead and cheer for Argentina in the FIFA world Cup. You never know, your favourite footballer might put up a striptease show for you. And then there is Venus Williams flaunting her rear in her corset looking tennis outfit. A corset while playing tennis? Really..??
So, all you sports lovers, glue your eyes onto the TV sets. There really is a lot of fun going on in South Africa and France.
And this is definitely not the end.
On a popular radio station, the jock had asked a question which I am putting in front of you guys.
Temme people, "Which famous person you wouldn't want to see running around naked all over the place"
Err.. yeah.. thats what I want to know..
