The Dichotomy Of India's Bias Media: How They Interpret News

By: Deva Sarran Samaroo

A key pillar of Indian democracy - the freedom of the press – The following account give a sample of media distortion in India.

Reporter:- Sir, what do you eat during Navratri?

Modjii : I only eat one single fruit in this Navratri.

Reporter :- PM Sir; which fruit will you Eat ?

Modi:- Papaya

NDTV :- Breaking news ...

Modi does not like Mangoes; Banana; etc. He only eats *Papaya.*

Surjewala :- Modi likes*Papaya* means Saffron in color. This means Saffronisation of food choice

Shekhar Gupta :- This means Modi is only promoting Hindutva.

He does not like green fruits means he is against Muslims.
This clearly shows Modi has no feelings for Muslims.

Mamata: - I will put a ban on *papaya* in Bengal.

Rahul Gandhi:- My favorite Fruit is Banana ....I will never eat *Papaya.*

Barkha Dutt : The nation wants to know why Modi likes *Papaya* more than other fruits .

Mehbooba Mufti :- Modi doesn't like kashmiri Apple.This is Modi’s tactic to usurp Kashmir. We will not allow this to happen.

Yechuri:- Selecting an expensive fruit like *Papaya* shows Modi is pro- capitalist. We would ask for a Judicial enquiry.

Kejriwal:- Traditionally AAM (mango) is considered the King of Fruits.
Modi is anti aam aadmi.

Ravish Kumar : Modi has betrayed his ugly, communal façade by declaring that he likes *Papaya.* By deliberately avoiding green guavas from the list of fruits he likes, Modi has clearly demonstrated his anti-Muslim, communal mentality. He is Polarising the nation.

A Tweet by Rajdeep Sardesai : "Modi likes *Papaya* an Indian fruit which mean he hates Olives, the Italian fruit. This shows a narrow nationalism. These RSS people have no international taste & class"

Mani Shankar Aiyar : Modi is a rotten *Papaya* and must therefore be immediately removed from the basket. Otherwise all Papayas in the basket will rot. A rotten *Papaya* like modi has no place in the secular, all-inclusive basket of India.

Sadanand Dhume quoting Rupa -

"As per an eminent economist, eating only *Papaya* can reduce consumption of other food, thus lowering Indian GDP growth by 100 basis points."

600 Theatre Artists, 100 Filmmakers, 103 Economists, Civil society groups and Award Wapsi brigade has issued a Combined statement urging Indians to boycott Papaya , as this fruit is damaging the unity & integrity of India.
