was talking to my grandmother and my periappa this mornin g. Both Chennai and AP seem to be floating in tons of water.
Both asked me why MSM doesnt’ seem to think that Chennai and Vizag deserve national coverage. Afterall, a whole chunk of the audience – especially the English viewing one – seems to be sitting there.
My grandmother said “they (the MSM) don’t consider anything South of Narmada to be part of India”
What she said rankled, but it seems true. I can understand the Hindi news channels not carrying too much on the floods – assuming that Hindi caters to a regional audience – but surely the English channels and papers could have done a bit more.
