Many of the media houses and TV anchors are thanking their stars after the new cabinet allocation on 27th of May. Many TV anchors who have donned the self acclaimed role of analysts and arm chair critique are really happy with Mr. Prakash Javadekar taking the charge of Information and Broadcasting Ministry. Some have also planned special thanksgiving pilgrimages at various holy cities of India.
Prior to allocation of ministries rumor mills were abuzz. Four strong willed fire brand women were in line for the high profile ministry. Any of the four namely Uma Bharti, Meenakshi Lekhi , Smriti Irani and Nirmala Sitharaman were slated to be sworn in as minister for I & B. The mere talk of any of the four in the seat had left many TV anchors in catch 22 situation. Many of these self proclaimed esteemed journalists were contemplating job switch. With limelight on AAP fading away many of the “KrantiKari” journalists had planned shifting to “Sant Kabir Prathyayam” at Varanasi. While one of the leading “Dim-Wit” lady anchors had booked tickets to Kashi for studying the architecture of Gyanvapi mosque besides Vishwanath temple. She intended to complete a thesis on Secularism by visiting Temples, Mosque, GuruDwara and Churches . The same lady had also filed for registration of research on “Gabbar Singh and Khirki Extension Minorities”.
Most of these Journalist heaved a small sigh of relief on the swearing in of the new Government . It was indeed a small relief as it was learnt tht Mr.Ravi Shankar Prasad was going to take charge of I & B ministry. Knowing his penchant for asking Resignation the TV anchors were still a worried lot.
However their sigh of relief has been complete once they have learnt that Mr.Prakash will be at helm of affairs. One can expect many of thees Journalist to go on long leaves on pilgrimages of thanksgiving and cancelling their alternately thought en devour . Meanwhile we can expect their tones to be less secular searching as someone had tweeted about watching all activities.
