That foul smell again: What is cooking at DD?

Is it any wonder that viewers, given a choice, avoid any 'darshan' of Doordarshan (DD), India's government-run 'national' broadcaster?

Just look at the list of 'professionals' chosen by it produce programs worth Rs 240 crores for its Kashmiri channel: a cook, an anganwadi worker, a labourer, a businessman and a travel agent! These people are evidently 'fronts' for officials of DD. The cook, for example, works at the home of an influential DD official!

The man behind this sordid scam is believed to be a retired IAS officer, BS Lalli, the CEO of Prasar Bharati. He is rumored to be a thoroughly corrupt officer who was involved in similar scandals while in service too.

It is not just Air India that is being killed by babus pretending to be CEOs. The rot is across the spectrum and near total.

Every morning newspaper-every tweet-every blog- every gloomy face proves only one point.
CORRUPTION IS NOT AN ISSUE IN THE COUNTRY NOW.
Now i wonder haw would the world be looking at us.
I will not be surprised if at the end of cook-babu-you may find a neta

Sad but true. And getting worse by the day. A neta will most likely be there, to seal and protect the loop.
