Other than @Indiatoday, not one TV channel has uttered a word on ventilators.

Many, including me, dug out facts. The Opposition raised the issue.

When people say Opposition is "not doing enough", remember that the culprit is a pliable media which covers up for the govt.…

Over-the-top media coverage of 'how many we killed' will satisfy the collective blood thirst of the population, and no one will ask the question as to how did the Indian soldiers die in the first place, and what were the failures at our end. Their death won't matter anymore.

"For tormented intellectuals, collaboration also offered a kind of relief, almost a sense of peace: It meant that they were no longer constantly at war with the state, no longer in turmoil. Once the intellectual has accepted that there is no other way, Miłosz wrote, “he eats with relish, his movements take on vigor, his color returns.
