A couple of weeks ago, I received an articulately worded mail from a correspondent of NDTV stating that she’d read Sachiniti and therefore requested an interview. So we got together for the shoot.
I was asked about Sachiniti, purpose of my writings, and more importantly, how do blogs and Wikis help mobilise public opinion. It was a nice chat.
I spoke of the the ‘New Frontier’..Blogger media and the fourth estate to consider working in tandem..I rounded off on behalf of the blogger community, listing our pluses, that of having a longer ‘shelf life’ as compared to electronic media etc.. we could keep issues alive, we were not governed by hidden agendas, or personal gains etc…. our reach cut across geographical boundaries into the realm of ideas and words therefore ‘we matter’.. and then added the classic line ‘ You may love us, hate us but cannot ignore us ” 🙂
Dino Morea, my ever helpful, charming friend, offered to let us shoot at his restaurant ‘Crepe Station’ at Carter Road, close by…it was fun.
I did not get to see it though. It did not appear at the scheduled 9.30 p.m. Sunday slot, but another day. ..so missed it. But anyways, MSM is taking notice of bloggers… perhaps another reason for us to use our voice constructively.
