When there was no Social Media we found ourself stifled and suffocated.
We also aspired to reach out to many and express our views on issues that were dear to us. But we did not have an easy access to media.
News Channels invited their own selected elites from Lutyens and conducted their own stage managed debates.
Those elites would give a sermon to the Nation as if they were the only ENLIGHTENED ones in the country and leave the newsrooms thinking that they have done a great job.
They used to think they make great impact on the society and its so easy to manage the PERCEPTION of the people. They would hop from one channel to another preaching us and leaving us CONFUSED and off course FRUSTRATED. I am sure majority of us felt the same.
We wanted to express ourselves, oppose them & tell that they're WRONG. But couldn't do so bcs we had no access to any such medium.
SM gave us a VOICE.
It gave us freedom of expression. Suddenly these elites realised that THERE ARE SO MANY IN THE SOCIETY WHO OPPOSE THEIR VIEWS.
It was a Bomb shell for them and they weren't prepared for it as they were living in their own MAKE BELIEVE WORLD.
They were taken by surprise as they had lived a life where even Politicians were scared of them & no one dared to oppose them. BARKHA DUTT, RAJDEEP, HIS WIFE etc.
Remember how after JAVED AKHTTAR had commented on the education of that Young girl- an athlete was trolled! It must have been a rude shock to him. JAVED Akhtar! God’s own, an MP, could be opposed by millions so strongly and viciously!
He must have got shaken up.
As the SOCIAL MEDIA increasingly became popular, there rose a popular Leader @narendramodi who spoke people’s language, who understood PEOPLE’S aspirations, who performed as per our desires and standards.
His rise can be compared to the rise of Amitabh Bachhan.
As a young angry man in late 70s...bcs the Indian society was fed up of soft looking romantic heroes running around the trees. The society was looking for a guy who could single handedly take on the system. These elites thought they can do so again and started targeting Mr. Modi.
But this time PEOPLE did not allow that to happen because there is SOCIAL MEDIA.
Every thing that they speak against him is strongly opposed on SM and that is so frustrating for them.
Had there been no Social Media the whole gang would have finished Mr. Modi by now.
They want that whatever they write, everyone should either like it or appreciate their or views. Any disagreement with their views DISTURBS them and OFFENDS them and they call it a HATE Campaign. These people do not realise that Social Media is a PUBLIC PLATFORM open to all.
Unfortunately these faux elites, these 'INTOLERANT' film stars, who were used to preaching aren't realising that their days of giving sermons to the society are over.
They must realise that they cannot manipulate PERCEPTION of the people now.
