In India, if you don’t take a photo of a person busy reading a ‘newspaper’ on the street (especially when you pick the street photography genre), you are unfit to be a photographer!
Just joking my friends!
You invariably bump a person engrossed in reading the local politics such that the person won’t even lift head to notice that you are clicking his or her photo in such a close range!
Newspaper reading is the most common site happening in almost every street here.
Did you ever realize?
“It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper” Jerry Seinfeld
The photo below taken with One Plus 6 Cellphone camera.
I don’t expect any great resolution of the images from these cameras.
These days it’s becoming more and more difficult to make out whether the news you are reading is true or false!
Almost a sort of ‘Ripley’s Believe It or Not!’
To know the truth, again you have to go through another newspaper or website which claims to bust all those ‘FAKE NEWS!
What is happening?
Are not newspapers supposed to be informative, enhancing one’s general knowledge and vocabulary?
Instead what is happening?
My friend, believe me, if I say, we are totally confused and subjected to unnecessary tension resulting in unwanted high blood pressure!
“A newspaper is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier” H.L.Mencken
What else to do if you don’t trust newspapers?
“I don’t read newspapers. I don’t watch the news, if something important happens, someone will tell me” Justin Trudeau
You mean to say that everything that is written can’t be 100% true?
I don’t know.
But you get answer from Christopher Hitchens.
“I became a journalist because I did not want to rely on newspapers for information” Christopher Hitchens
What do you do my friend?
You just read the news and ignore later or you seriously ponder about the news?
Please share your thoughts.
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
