Politics,A favorite Brand


I was never a student of political science neither it could ever attract me.
I was, and am, a wandering poet who loves to imagine, remember, and express.
There is nothing special in having poetic bend of mind. Every person in one or other phase of his/her life feels or imagine like a poet. But the current confused, chaotic situation of Pakistan has changed the nature along with the general interests. The excess of political talk shows, and the endless efforts of politicians cum actors have changed the mindset of young, middle aged and old fellows all in a sudden.
Geo, ARY, Express, AAJ, Dawn. and newly emerged news channels rule over the hearts of people but not there brains. I accept that I cannot help getting attracted by these news channels an talk shows. And the same is the case with everyone. We have analysts right among us. Now every Pakistani understands, evaluates and discuss .But besides bestowing this awareness, these news channels are themselves are getting immense benefits. The channels and their famous faces have gathered uncountable assets. The political duels, sophisticated never ending process of taunt, baseless and goal less debates, whether all these activities could achieve their purpose of so called social betterment or not,one thing is quite clear that these channels have changed general interest. Now mob without any gender,class and age discrimination have got some insight regarding politics. Now they want to say something, though they do not have enough words yet they feel themselves a direct part of the system despite the system itself is aloof to them.

I've always found it difficult to care about politics too but I've been making an effort of late- so much happening of late around the world seems shameful not to.

Very true but the channels and the overall media explosion and the political environment has surely taken over the minds rather than the hearts

If it is an consolation - politics is all over the place everywhere. Sigh.

I can resonate your feelings.

I love journalists and columnists like Najam Sethi, Hasan Nisar, Wajahat Khan and Hamid Mir. Are they also involve in gathering uncountable assets?

Arooj,

One should be politically informed and know who is sincere to use right of vote. I agree that mostly it is SUB BATON K KHAIL HAIN.

Take care

as another blogger said "Politics are everywhere" BUT politicians do NOT necessarily tell the truth nor do they have the common citizens best interests at heart. I am cynical and watch and listen carefully to hopefully discern the truth between the lies.
