Brand games


After long time I found myself stuck with me and current issues. Only current issue which is visible enough to me is Lokpal, of course. So I was watching debate between Karan Thapar and Arvind Kejriwal. I have seen Karan before and his attitude wasn’t any surprise and neither was Arvind's. The issues pertaining to Janlokpal movement among the thinkers is plain. Hunger strike is suicidal and therefore a blackmail. The faith in democracy parliament should be restored. And thus Arvind spoke, he has lost any lasting hope and he doesn’t think public is willing to put anymore either. I think he defended pretty it well as to what he thinks is required of democracy parliament as to maintain that faith. Gave well established facts, both affecting general public and him personally. Nothing has really helped.

However, Karan Thapar didn't buy or his devil tells him that he can not. So to keep the brand of Karan Thapar alive he kept asking same question again and again. So came the thought - why does every one to be playing a brand games.

The news readers are establishing their own, interviewers their own, panelist their own, every person on facebook their own. The living and making money satisfaction comes with sticking with your brand of philosophy. Agnostic, spiritual, atheist, nationalist, opportunist, religious, introvertist, extrovertist, questioner, answerer, back bencher, front runner, and each one of us put carry them around with varying weight-age and thus building our claim to being living individual.

Just a thought.
