« Khairlanji: Court Proceeding on 23rd July’08Pathetic rule of law is result of Caste Based discrimination »Dalit Digital Media: Shuddering the Hinduized News Media-PartI15Aug08By SaintWhat is happening in the Digital world?Ever since internet and IT became part of our lives, there is a tremendous transformation of our communication system, communication media, interpersonal communications and also in the press and TV media. This is a great challenge for the traditional media, so they have all facing this challenges some of them make it,and others are loosing the battle in this changing times?.But, for the right thinking individuals and groups, this changing times are a superb opportunity to grab and boot the conventional news, as the consequence is the emergence of digital media which sends a shrill into the spine of shivering “Traditional Media.”This is true as far as Indian national news media groups, certainly true in theinternational media networks too. It is the modern bloggers and internet news sites that are making progress steadily, ask New York times or other such giant news mogul how much revenue they are loosing from advertisement and subscriptions,you will know the truth. Ironic, is in’t. This is happening at the price of thesenews media ignoring what people need and what this society needs in terms of news on a day to day basis.The traditional Indian news groups like Hindu, Indian Express and Times of Indiaand the likes are fully staffed by hindu and chauvinistic, casteistic people who cannot think out of their little “Frog’s Well” to say so!?. First of all they have this eternal bias and bigoted heads, but the other issue is the “Fear of loosing everything they accumulated and squandered by betraying the society and poor people?. If dalits move into the media, and if they become media moguls in India, which will be the disastrous end to all those who are running the news group. Therewill be hardly any non hindus (the Shudras, Bcs and Sc, Sts) will not buy the traditional media), which brings only 15% of the population to care about the traditional media, the rest of 85% the real non-hindus will go for the insightful dalit media.Dalit Media, oh yea?, what is dalit media anyways?. I am quite sure there is lotof Indians including some dalits asking this question or pondering over whatever is Dalit Media is all about?.Some of the Blogs and website that are challenging the traditional news papers are listed, these to the most part are run by dalits, except few but the few of them are genuine writers who seek attention to dalit issues (blogs such as: Ultraviolet). Some of the Key blogs and sites are listed below, they range from Dalits writers blog to others who honestly see this casteism and it’s pathological effect of Indian society, needs utmost importance to change India. These only few of the several other blogs and sites that are not mentioned here are doing theirpart of cleaning up the media monopoly and making sure that people get the rightnews at the right time.
