Dear all

This trailing article  of my friend Priya is worth reading. Please think now , as how biased is our media: I had always writen that our media nightingales and gandharvakumars always danced to the tunes of corporate and political money, and blatently failing on its role as the fifth estate. Do share this message of  her and let us all salute Major Pitambare:

Jai Hind:


Doing my bit .
I got the mail below from a friend of mine and am but all efforts would go waste if this mail doesn't reach THE MEDIA ......and give these guys something to think about..!! Really what a shame...

By the time you guys read this news, the body of Major Manish Pitambare, who was shot dead at Anantnag, would have been cr...emated with full military honors.

On Tuesday, this news swept across all the news channels- 'Sanjay Dutt relieved by court'. 'Sirf Munna not a bhai' '13 saal ka vanvaas khatam' 'although found guiltyof r possession of arms, Sanjay can breathe a sigh of relief as all the TADA charges against him are withdrawn'!
In some other news channel , Parliament was mad at the Indian team for performing badly ; Shah Rukh Khan was replacing Amitabh in KBC and other such stuff . But most of the emphasis was given on Sanjay Dutt's "phoenix like" comeback from the ashes of terrorist charges.
Surfing through the channels, one news on BBC startled me. It read "Hisbul Mujahidin's most wanted terrorist 'Sohel Faisal' killed in Anantnag , India .. Indian Major leading the operation lost his life in the process. Four others are injured.

It was past midnight , I started visiting the Indian news channels, but Sanjay Dutt was still ruling. Sanjay pleaded in the court saying 'I'm the sole bread earner for my family', 'I have a daughter who is studying in the US and so on. .. how he went to every temple and prayed for the last few months. A suspect in Mumbai bomb blasts, convicted under possession of arms ...was being transformed into a hero!.
Sure Sanjay Dutt has a daughter; Sure he is not a terrorist ,sure he went to all the temples;Sure he did a lot of Gandhigiri but then.......... ..
Major Manish H Pitambare got the information from his sources about the terrorists' whereabouts. Wasting no time, he attacked the camp, killed Hisbul Mujahidin's supremo and in the process lost his life to the bullets fired from an AK47. He is survived by a wife and daughter who is only 18 months old.

No news channel covered this since they were too busy hyping a film actor …….since he made “better news” .They also concluded that his parents in heaven must be happy and proud of him.
The parents of Major Manish are still living and they have to live rest of their lives without their beloved son. His daughter won't ever see her daddy again!

So guys, please pass this message around so that the media knows which news to give importance to!It is a matter of shame for us that the news of the death of this Army Major was given by a foreign TV channel !
