Indian bloggers and readers voted this post as “Top post on IndiBlogger” Site! Thank you šŸ™‚

Why India will be next Media Capital of the World:

  • India has largest English speaking population (over 350 millions or 35 crores)

  • India has 99000+ publications

  • India has 13761+ registered News Papers

  • 404 TV News Channels that runs 24X7

  • But, still don’t have a Global News Network (which is big opportunity for Indians!)

World Statistics shared by Mr Arnab Goswami (below clip) shows,

91% Indians follows cross-border news, making them most interested about world.

With 44-45 % the least interested are Americans and British, but they try to control (74 % of source of Global News coming from them ) most of WorldĀ  Affairs News with their biased Propaganda!! Oppssā€¦

Indian fire brand journalist Mr. Arnab Goswami Summarizes this as ā€œIndians are least insular i.e open Minded people. Americans are most insular people but they have complete dominance over Global Narrative in terms of news”.

MUST WATCH: Arnab Goswami tearing Western Media at RT conference 2015 ‘Hegemony of Western media has to end’

Full debate: “Role of International news media on new geopolitical chessboard (#RT10 Panel Discussion) ā€“ 2015ā€ with Arnab Goswami representing Indian News Media.

Itā€™s a huge opportunity for Indians to show world our Drishti (gazing) on India and world affairs.

~ Ghost Cities/Towns in Globalization!

Ghost Town or city is a term mentioned for cities where there is no human activity due to various reasons e.g shift of human due to failed economic activity, natural disaster or government actions/laws, etc. I am more interested to see how Globalization created Ghost cities!Ā  Oooops ā€¦.Paradox??

We believe Economic development is like a new age tool for human prosperity.But, fast changing world in Globalization also has other dark side like ā€“ Creation of Ghost Cities/Town!

There are various reasons for forming such Ghost cities:

  • To keep investing in city infrastructure for economic reason or just to stay competitive in the world,
  • Wrong calculation of demand and supply,
  • Closing of business due to Recession,
  • Population shift to other location in search of better life/employment,
  • Lack of infrastructure or quality life in the region, etc.

Whatever may be the reason, but we mustĀ stop investing billions of dollars worldwide in creating such Ghost towns and plan properly to create new livable cities/towns.

In future new policies should takeĀ lessons from these examples. Lets hope these ghost cities will be full of life soon!

1. Navi MumbaiĀ  -India: In order to reduce burden on Mumbai, government and private builders built Navi Mumbai town just outskirts of Mumbai. Tough the infrastructure at Navi Mumbai was good, but due to lack of proper connectivity to Mumbaiā€™s mainland and also high cost, many apartments were vacant for long. There are many such ā€œProperty Bubbleā€ areas around Mumbai Ā which created ā€œghostā€ areas within the city. Hope things are fine now and it might have occupied.

See these reports (YouTubeĀ clips) on Ghost Cities in China, US , Ireland, Spain and Russia.
