    I am not in denial about any social issues faced by India.Just that i am very critical of Western media's reporting on Indian issues.

    Instead of giving in dept analysis and the details of the issues faced by the country,the media simply aims are stereotyping and stigmatizing the country and it's people.

    You could see that during the recent Delhi gangrape .In a famous american paper there was an article with a headline "what is wrong with indian men" and the tone of the article was hinting that all indian men are born rapists.

    I observe almost all international coverage of india related issues is typically negative and cynical.Even the most positive news is presented in a negative format.

    for example "India celebrates it's world cup victory while majority of it's population are suffering from hunger",

    India build a new airport and road in delhi instead of feeding it's people


    India commissioned a new ship into it's navy.Questions are being raised about the governments priorities.

    and recently there was an UN report on Maoists and north east insurgents recruiting children.The media twisted it to present it as "India recruits child soldiers" as if Maoists and other insurgents are a legal organization in india.


    It's sickening to see these kind of utter biased and rubbish reports.

    You should have seen the british media since 2008 they are worse towards India then Half Chaddi Paki media the rival-e-azam of Indian Media since that movie Slumdog millionaire glamorized the Indian poverty giving a new Brit nick name to already given names of the late 90s and early 2000s ie :-the land of Snake-charmers, Cows on the busy street and Lack of toilets Blah Blah Blah which only intensified when they were shown the way out in the much important MMRCA Typhoon deal....Oh man you should see the bashing in the English press in 2012.........

    And Ah Yes who could forget the Aussie Media which played a protected role of Aussie Identity when Indian Students were beaten like animals

    Their so called "western men" are no less... so many rapes even when there is so much liberalization specially in their military.

    They should also tell about their Gay priests abusing small children.They should also explain how their men have made a HUGE pedophile network across EU and US.They should also explain their men holding teen girls in their basement and raping them for years and years and doing abortions by kicking their stomach.

    Also they should also explain the free sex culture their society is following where even incest is not against the law.

    I am copy-pasting an earlier post of mine, replace "British" with "Western" and read on.

    This does not happens to only Indians but is of of reflection of what the western society and countries in particular thinks of us.........For eg.....In 1980s India was often called as a muslim majority place not only in Western Europe country such as Spain but also Ireland etc....also in 70s and 80s Yugoslavia, and many countries in former USSR such as Armenia SSR, Uzbek SSR, Tajik, Chechen and Turkmen used to say that the land which we now now as India is still a land were Slavery exist and could buy and sell slaves from Delhis bazaar....because their ancestors had the same exact portray picture which their forefathers told of medieval Mughal India.........

    That being said our Desi Media associates every Gujrati as Communal and every time Riots word appear along with mere mention of Gujarat is also a product of same Westernization of Media.......basically Gujaratis are to India acc to NDTV what Bosnian Serbs were to Europe acc to Sky News of U.K. in the late 1990s

    they can't bear to see asians becoming a real dominant force in the world.

    plus, 1+ billion chinese and 1+ billion indians. the numbers alone are scary.

    even russians who are ethnically and culturally european (though not part of "the west") got them scared to hell, because they didn't follow the western world order. but instead russia sought to be independent from the western bloc and become powerful on their own, just like china and india are doing today.

    I dont mind western countries criticizing India, but the way they criticize, a tone of arrogance that they are "doodh ka dhula".

    Exactly. Although India is quite Westernized (its political system and social elites, anyway), it pursues an independent foreign policy and is not a puppet or mere follower of the West. The major Western media outlets all hold generally unfavorable views towards countries that are not totally aligned with the West. This at least partially explains the constant negative images of countries like India, Iran, and China, while Western allies like erstwhile Apartheid-era South Africa and Saudi Arabia (one of the most barbaric states on earth) receive comparatively little screen time.

    they demonize our government mostly, which means they have less time to demonize our people/culture.

    which is a bit lucky for us, but only a bit.

    but at the end of the day, they want to stop china's rise. which means they need to slow down our development. that's bad news for our people, our culture, our civilization too.

    They are bastards ( literal sense of the term ) so not much attention should be given to these angarezs who are worse than nazis in vilifying any people.


    It is the same western media that saw millions of death in jagannath puri in early 1900s and villages with ponds full of human bones.


    the solution is to rid delhi of their correspondents and let them engage in their pornography which they call journalism.

    Yes I know that they demonize PRC more than it deserves as in xinjiang riots, the western media painted a picture of chinese massacring uighurs whereas the reality was that it was a riot with uighurs too killing the common people.

    they have no anger towards terrorist organizations in china but as i said i have noticed that they do not demonize chinese people as such which is better than our case in which our identity is made of three Cs

    COW, CASTE and CURRY.



    USA sees 30,000 murders per year even when its population is four times lower than us but its media sermons us on the need to improve law and order for foreign tourists.

    "the best revenge is to live a good life"

    that's how we will take our revenge on them, by continuing to develop our countrys so we can live up to our potential.

    this is the best solution.

    This is the best advise in this thread so far. The world runs on money. It is only money and wealth that is respected. Get rich, get developed - that is all it takes.

    This is yet another thread where I will repeat my oft-repeated statement: economic growth and economic progress should be the sole focus of India. Nothing else matters.

    You have hit the nail on the head. I was observing in another forum, how the Westerners in general and Aussies in particular, keep sniggering at India and calling it a "vile country", "smelly country", "bad culture", "filthy people", "cow piss drinkers", "monkey worshipers", and all kinds of crap. They do this on a constant basis, and at the same time, give India lectures on "racism" and "tolerance".

    Such smug hypocrites need to be slapped across their ----ing faces. Many of their nations are in relative decline now, and I fervently pray that the decline is complete in our lifetimes.
