In the age of 24X7 noisy TV channels, Whatsapp rumours and advertisements/ paid news disguised in the form of newspapers, it’s tough to keep pace with the news. The shouting matches that get played out on TV prime time don’t help either. When the information is so distorted around you, it’s tough to form correct opinion on day-to-day affairs.
Teekhi Mirchi believes in empowering and enlightening its readers, which is why, we’ve brought to you 5 speedy steps to form correct opinion on current affairs, controversial topics and tough-to-judge events. Read on-
Step1: Wait for that issue to be highlighted by mainstream and social media. Keep an eye on current affairs.
Step2: Read the opinion of the leaders of the political party you support, or celebrity you follow. That exactly should be your opinion on the issue. As simple as that!
Step3: If nobody in Step 2 has spoken about it, read the opinion of the political party or celebrity you hate. Your opinion must be juxtaposed to that.
Step4: If nobody in Step 2 and 3 have spoken about the issue, form an opinion in your mind that reinforced your beliefs, biases, prejudices, preconceived ideas.
Step5: Congratulation! You’re now an enlightened, responsible, and intellectual citizen of the world. You are aware of what’s happening around you, and are eligible to discuss the topic in your drawing room, office canteen or in public. You’ve just completed the first step to become an armchair thinker, and who knows, even eligibility for TV panel discussions.
