The Times of India
Major General Joseph Narh Adinkrahon, Chief of the Army Staff of Ghana, on an official visit to India reviewed an impressive Guard of Honour presented by the Armed Forces at South Block in New Delhi on June 28. A beautiful photograph of the event was put out by the PTI news agency.
As usual it was a total black-out on the part of The Times of India on June 29. But you did publish all of four photographs (on the top of page 17) of a foreigner riding on/falling off a horse and then walking away as if it were an earth-shaking event!
In sharp contrast, again, in your issue dated June 29 you show two big photographs--one of them on the top of the front page--of a (CRPF?) policeman lying on the ground and being beaten with the sticks by the people! Two almost identical photographs, yes!
Poor cop! So helpless was he! What an exotic hoopla created by you, Sir! The handiwork of some master craftsman! Is it supposed to be "crafty" also?
Isn't it obvious that the news/events showing India's power or glory and enhancing national pride among the citizens are mostly of no use to you? For you things portraying security forces in poor light and producing demoralising effect on them and the masses seem much more important and newsy. Any number of instances of this nature can be quoted in support.
Pray, why do you do so? Of course, by now we may know it all! Or, do we, really?
What type of "National" paper are you heading, Sir? Shame on you!
