I had always been known for my argumentative nature. Even if I agreed to something, I preferred to oppose and go against it just in order to start a debate. Folks at my home thought I would earn good fortune as a lawyer. But I choose to be a content writer. The corporate life gave away my passion for debates. I had to gradually learn the act of diplomacy. With the advent of social media, I somehow started getting a grip back to a long gone habit. With http://debate.fm/ I started thinking otherwise. Now, I believe, I can add a new feather to my hat and call myself a social debater....

Shall we be happy since outsourcing is fetching more jobs to east?

Even just a decade back, the scenario was different. The largest share of the outsourced jobs was pouring in to parts of Hungary, Poland and Czech Republic. Low cost manufacturing - one of the main reasons that lead US and Europe to outsource their work.

Indian Media Behaves in Irresponsible Way

There is a common trend among Indian media to sensationalize news. Often media behaves like  prosecutors  and pass on  judgments   even before the court has pronounced a sentence in an allegation case. The kind of news coverage we get to see these days only trigger controversies and fail to make any changes in our daily lives. We have a tendency to believe whatever...

For 31 months the city was safe from the hands of terrorists we all assumed. But the serial blasts that again shook the city last evening kept us gapping and at awe. Nothing has changed perhaps. Tweets and Facebook updates were flooding, leading...

Journalism today has become opinionated

Following some recent trends of news and the way Bengali news channels have been covering it, I got a feeling that media today is becoming very opinionated. The Park Street Rape case is still hitting headlines in all regional channels. There had been huge hue and cry when the Honorable CM, Mamata Banerjee and one of her cabinets stated the story as a concocted one to malign her government...
