India China Stand Off at LAC in Ladakh

Padmini Arhant

The conventional wisdom recognize that in politics and warfare, TRUTH is the first casualty and remains so to suit authorities’ convenience. 

The recent casualties suffered on both sides neither disclosed the incident actual date though Indian media and government decided on June 15th in synchrony with foreign press and diktat contrary to the unfortunate event happening way earlier. Similarly the victims statistics were also not reported accurately with 20 soldiers martyrdom acknowledged when there were at least 32 martyrs on Indian side as revealed on this site back on June 5th, 2020 beckoning attention.

As such politics and media having no credibility whatsoever, the deliberate omission is least surprising. The press touted as fourth column in Indian Constitution granting freedom to press and media in the hope of the news organizations and media house exercising autonomy in transparency engaged in the reverse role protecting political establishment and others from whom media house monetarily benefit while keeping the public in the dark or misinformed on all issues of people and national interest.

Furthermore, news outlets and media serving as internal and external forces’ major propaganda machinery targeting individuals like me with constant slander and slur ad hominem to satisfy ego and contempt is the norm.  Notwithstanding the practice diminishing ethical standards and journalism to lowest ebb. 

On the other hand, China’s state agency and spokespersons released haphazard statements on their fatalities in utter dismissal of armed forces deployment in inhospitable terrain paying dear price due to China’s Communist Party (CCP) and People Liberation Army (PLA) wanton aggression utilizing military activities to deflect domestic focus away from myriad challenges within country.

There is always more to it than meets the eye in matter concerning life and death of citizens like in the latest pandemic and defense personnel in war zones that continues to fall short on accountability among politics and media exerting control over information.

Confronting truth and reality is the litmus test on leadership demanding courage and integrity to accept responsibility on failures to safeguard lives with proactive and precautionary measures rather than converting others misfortune and tragedies to political advantage and commercial gains prevalent in politics and news media.

The consolidated contrived action to discredit truth in the report on 32 Indian soldiers casualties and  chinese armed regiment deaths published on this site far ahead of national and international concurrence is routine.

In light of concerted effort among national and international clique to invalidate factual presentations on this site and sub domain highlighted above, let here be no more redactions and discount in reporting facts and figures related to wars of any nature – the tense border standoff in the Himalayan region between India and China or the pandemic consuming lives and affecting thousands paralyzing life and economy much to national and global colossal damage.

Thank you.

Politics and Media Relations

February 17, 2017

By Padmini Arhant

How does Politics manage media relations?

Through wedding and pre-nuptial agreement. Marry media and bury the hatchet. 

In the former President Barack Obama administration – the media relation, a family affair. 

ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, former National Security Adviser in former President Barack Obama administration – This explains the sweep and mop strategy exercised in misleading American public on Benghazi scandal. 

CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Barack Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications – Master stroke not to report on Ben Rhodes email elaborating coverup on Benghazi debacle.

ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney

ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary

ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood

CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides – No wonder there was all praise regardless of Benghazi, private email server and political excess baggage. 

Is this not a conflict of interest?  

Who is to report when the source was outsourced to serve political interest.

Politics and cronyism evolved to become inseparable entity defending any indefensible position.

Face The Truth – Press, Communication Media and Entertainment Sector

November 29, 2015


By Padmini Arhant

The contemporary trend is mind control with propaganda, lies and unsubstantiated allegations to subvert truth deflecting attention from reality.

Additionally, the platform facilitates hate mongering, prejudice and polarization in society.

The communication media and entertainment industry widely used for this purpose.  The degenerative political, economic and social environment is a reflection of forces at the helm reining power incognito.

Despite repeat failures in the so called war on terror through terrorism notwithstanding major electoral debacles by their proxies in government, the declining supremacy evidently nothing more than a fantasy with history serving as testimony until today.

Since desperate times seeks desperate measures, the dimming powerhouse reliance on misinformation and denigration via paid representatives in the literary and artistic fields incentivized with undeserving awards and titles to parrot prompters message further confirms decaying process.

As a result, the entertainment along with press and other communication outlets are extensively deployed in mass manipulation.

In this segment, I pose the following questions to Media, Entertainment and literary body for complicity to abuse of power.

  1. Is the press reporting news events factually or induce politically motivated characterization?

The latter is the preferred practice misleading public and to curb challengers at bay.

  1. Are communication media and broadcasting networks transformed into state media and proprietary interests rather than stalwarts in holding authority and celebrity accountable for misusing self proclaimed privileged status?

Political establishment owned television networks and communication channels primarily set up to cover up scandals involving them and target genuine opposition delineated from political affiliation.  The media syndicate diversion and distortion promote vested agenda leaving the captive audience in the dark.

The various media including television are convenient mediums for slander and malicious rumors besides masquerading criminality and corrupt regimes in power.

  1. How come the entertainment industry profiteering from unauthorized theme and content not pursuing real events with forces behind crimes against humanity?

The entertainment industry – television and theaters controlled and maneuvered for mind invasion with fabrication and falsehood prevent discovery of facts and truthful exposure leading to real perpetrators in disguise.

  1. Why can’t the entertainment industry exercise diligence and discernment over cashing in on trashing and bashing natural phenomenon?

The entertainment industry engaged in impersonation fraudulently claimed as emulation and satire somehow only fixated with entity standing up to roots of all evil clarifying the negative influence to maintain status quo.

  1. Does this mean the entertainment sector infiltrated by elements against positive developments?

Yes. The unsavory factions’ dominance exemplify decadence.

  1. Where does the press stand in terms of divulgence?

The press is heavily politicized and patronize enemy of duplicity.

  1. Is there an independent and investigative journalism?

The rare existence is increasingly threatened arising from zero tolerance to fair presentation and analysis.

  1. Are there pseudonyms to smear authentic expose?

The tradition continues to self-detriment for anything counterproductive is an apparent disaster.

  1. What is the impetus for performers in the mind numbing orchestra?

Monetary benefits and publicity are the attractions with little or no concern for unconscionable actions.

  1. What is the future for press, media and entertainment under delusional clique?

In doldrums unless creativity and journalistic standards not compromised with unethical and divisive indulgence.

Finally, Intellect and talent best demonstrated in courage and integrity withstanding test of time and tide.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
