Dhoni’s new Hairstyle!!!

Picture borrowed from indiatimes.com

I like NDTV as it’s got the reputation of being one of the most respectable News channels of India…..but I was shocked when the reason behind Dhoni’s new hairstyle was shown as part of the NEWS headlines. As if that wasn’t enough, the folk at NDTV wanted us to decide if Dhoni did it for Deepika Padukone! Wasn’t this stuff supposed to be part of Aneesha Baig’s platter on Night Out?!

I am sorry to say…but I DON’T REALLY CARE IF DHONI GETS A NEW HAIRSTYLE OR IF DEEPIKA PADUKONE IS HIS GIRLFRIEND. Isn’t there any worthwhile news worth reporting?

I thought that the right to spread gossip and rumours (as if it were the tsunami hitting us again) was given to channels like Star News Hindi and Aaj Tak…didn’t know NDTV joined the bandwagon. It’s sad…really sad….

  1. Exactly, I had the very same reaction to this type of news and its really sad that NDTV has joined this bandwagon. What has happened to the Indian media? We have officially lost the right to make fun of the Yahoo US news where Britney’s lip job makes the headline.

    A similar news segment that bothered me very much (due to the idioticity and hormone driven high-school-ishness of it) was the Headlines today segment earlier this month on whether Dhoni was smitten by Deepika. I had written about this here: http://vmminerva.wordpress.com/2007/10/11/from-chappells-words-of-wisdom-to-the-abysmal-vadodara-odi/

    Who cares, was what I thought and its incredibly heartening to see that I’m not alone.
