It has been said- “half knowledge is dangerous”. But now there is an increasing need to change this notion to – “misinformation is even more dangerous”. When the society of a nation is misinformed, democracy can be the worse form of government. Increasing role of media & information technology in our lives had suffocated us with information, without bothering about its relevance.
Every month, at least, one news includes the topic of increasing food prices in India. They force us to believe that price of some vegetable or other food item had sky rocketed. After this, political tussle start between political parties over increased food prices. They will mostly blame each other; media channels will cover all this from all possible perfect angles. After some days, news will lose its rank on TRP rating and everyone will forget it. During all this process, no one will try to explain or understand the reality, or the possible solution for these frequent price rises.
