Put the pitchforks down. Before you say that no one’s forcing you to read about it, stop and listen for a moment. I don’t have anything against Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja. I am happy that they’re married and had a wonderful (so I heard) reception. My problem is with how everyone is bombarding me with news about their wedding. From her lehenga to DJs playlists, to Alia Bhatt coming to her wedding or not – My timeline is filled with all this crap. And no, I am not following any celebrity news pages.
News houses like TOI, NDTV, India Today – were giving minute by minute updates of Sonam and Anand’s wedding which, in my opinion, is not newsworthy. It’s like Taimur all over again. No, I don’t want to know what gift did Ranbir give to Sonam or who came to her reception. I just want news from the news pages that I am following. Is that too much to ask?
I get it. These articles people to your website and it maybe news for some. But they are showing this as it is the most important thing happening in our country right now. I mean,we have PLENTY of pages that cover celebrity news and gossip. And I like them, because they are doing what they are supposed to do, unlike these news channels.
You may call this a rant or call me a troll or whatever but this is true. Soon, we’ll start getting articles like ‘OMG, Sonam and Anand are giving us serious relationship goals’ or 10 pictures from their honeymoon or something like that. This is not news people. Stop sharing it from your news channels. Leave to the pages who’re actually supposed to share these stories.
We have a lot going on in the world and in our country, things more important than this, things that people need to know. Share those.
