After Gyanendra Shah’s “press conference”, some crude and rude media people took over the chair the recently dethroned king had just left and posed to the camera mimicking the former.(Photograph by Krishna Dhungana via mysansar.com)
And they boastfully tried to justify what they did in front of the television camera! I was ashamed seeing the photo session and hearing their cheap words.
Reportedly, some of them vandalized the hall and tried to “steal” some valuables also.
“On duty” Nepalese journos presented them as uncivil in front of the foreign “lenses” through which the rest of the world is watching the development in Nepal. Being a scribe of one-time, I am ashamed of the unmannerly and unethical drama by the social watchdogs. What I think is they were supposed to be messengers primarily during their job of reporting. Their personal choice or political inclination should have been secondary at the palace today!
Do all of us know what the heck social moral responsibility is?
When shall journalists learn the culture and good manners?
Was really pissed off (and sort of happy also) seeing this picture published in today’s Kantipur Daily; Mr. Western Journo too is enjoying the hot seat and busy posing… It’s not only Nepali media people then! :)
हग्नेलाई भन्दा देख्नेलाई लाज भनेको यही हो।
As suggested by NepaliAkash, here is Dance Monkeys Dance! Watch it!
