    [Not many people today know aboutcorrupt legacyand deceit history of NDTV Head Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy. How Prannoy Roy, his wife Radhika Roy of NDTV, palmed off Doordarshan in a way not dissimilar to how DB Realty palmed off Telecom Ministry and the tax payer.Tweepleand guest blogger Shri @s_chaitanyaprovides valuable insights that will help one understand deceit nature of major sections of Indian media today. Prannoy Roy's ascendency in broadcast media to a good extent explains why large sections of broadcast media show poorjournaliststandards. Prannoy Roy case is another example ofdeterminedrogues with connections conning Indians and escaping justice. Concluding portion of this post will surprise AB Vajpayee fans]

    [Editor: The whole saga turns up several interesting points. Who bailed Prannoy Roy and NDTV out? Needle of suspicion points at the following people in the NDA Government: AB Vajpayee, PM, Brajesh Mishra, Cabinet Secretary, LK Advani, Home Minister, Law Minister Arun Jatiley and Sushma Swaraj, Information & Broadcast Minister. The decision could have been a consensual one driven by Brajesh Mishra. One does notice that Brajesh finds himself in NDTV whenever he wants. AB Vajpayee to NDTV was always the good man in a bad party. NDTV's coverage on Mr Arun Jaitley and Smt Swaraj is markedly different from its coverage of Shri Narendra Modi. By the way, Arun Jaitley was cited by Chitra Subramaniam on helping Bofors cover up and helping Sonia family. Before2009 elections, LK Advani was specially awarded by NDTV forlife time achievement (for what?babrimosque structure demolition?;-)). Progressively in Indian media, journalism of courage has by and large been buried.PrannoyJames Roy, son of English Mother and Bengali father has done rather well by networking with the powerful and the corrupt. He is a member of the CFR. He is a co-brother of Prakash Karat, Marxist Communist Party, General Secretary who by the way is also a bible expert and who was guided by liberation theologian, Reverend Duncan Forester for scholarship to Edinburgh University(Wikipediawonttell you this.;-))Prannoyis Suzanne (aka Arundati) Roy'scousin. Not surprisingly, NDTV partners Christian fascist World Vision notoriousfor its intolerance. By and large and not surprisingly NDTV has been faithful tochristianist, red andislamistnetworks whose anti-Hindu agenda, NDTV champions. Discourse subversion by the likes of NDTV has high costs and is not understood by many. One shudders to thinktowhat compromises, NDTV and the Roys would have done to sustain their almost perpetually loss-making entity. Continuous survival of acontinuallyloss making NDTV is a financial miracle in itself that calls for scrutiny. Further, success through corruption sets a very wrong example to the society.Itsnot a coincidence that Rajdeep Sardesai, Raghav Behl and others have sought to emulate Prannoy Roy Model of Corruption and Deceit journalism. It is said old habits die hard. NDTV was again in the news for corruption. Sunday Guardian highlighted how NDTV avoids Taxesand of financial chicanery with ICICI bank. NDTV decided to brazen it out and tried intimidating tacticswith Sunday Guardian. And well, interview appearances, 'awards' for Chanda Kochchar, ' Life time Achievement' for KV Kamath ;-) and award to ICICIhave nothing to do with quid pro quo? Fredrick Hayek'sruleonpeople violating ossified rules in India kind of scarcity environment has been proffered at times to justify corruption. Thatdefencedoes not hold in cases similar toprannoyroy'sCBI case where the goal is to defraud thetax-payerand criminal conspiracy is involved. It might be worthwhile for intrepid RTI -waalasto cull out facts onPrannoy Roy's CBI case. Dr. Swamy suggests innovative ways to prosecute the corrupt. These approaches are likely to work when the judiciary is fair. Judiciary, post KG Balakrishnan seems different and presents a window of opportunity to tame corruption such as NDTV's]

    It is mentioned that Roy is the co brother of Karat.

    I checked the dictionary to find what a co brother was, since I did not understand.

    I found no explanation in the Dictionary.

    Can someone tell me is co brother's meaning and if it is an English word.

    Ray, it is used in the same sense in North too.

    sadhoo it is, and it has no equivalent in English. A man knowing an Indian language will know it.

    No, not used in Bengali ( the little I know) but, Sadu, Sadoo is used in many other languages.

    In Bangla probably the equivalent is 'Bhai-ra-bhai'. Isn't it?

    Bhai ra Bhai is more appropriate.

    Sandoo sound crude, something like a Sand ( = prize bull for collecting sperm for artificial insemination).

    Sir,

    co brother is pure hinglish.
    It is used to mean " saadu bhai" (husband of wife's sister)
    Actual term I guess should be, wife's sister's husband
