I’ve been on TV on all three days since it was a long festival holiday. Diwali fever was overshadowed by Obama mania. All news channels were following the US president and almost all local news were pushed behind. Even India – NZ news took a beating as I didn’t see any update on score or panel review after the match which is a common phenominon.
It was interesting to see News channels creating debates starting from;
- Obama’s Protectionalism Policy.
- Obama’s stand on Pakistan & China.
- Obama’s election defeat and its impact on his India visit.
and more… There were opinions from politicians, bureaucrats, entrepreneurs & activists… It was interesting to see the perspective of different segments of people…
Though it was interesting to watch all those debates, followup on the Presidents activities & transcripts of his meeting with PM were interesting and helped me to pass my time. It became boring over a point because things were Over Covered & Over Publicized.
