And so on. Mainstream has no reason to be anti-UPA but it understands its responsibilities as a serious journal whose duty is not so much to entertain as much as to educate and inform. It is a pleasure to read it. Most of the time, it appears that editors of the English media are afraid to say anything negative about the UPA government. Practically everything written about the so-called Indo-US Nuclear Cooperation Agreement is pro-government when many Indian nuclear scientists are reportedly very chary, if not upset, with some of its clauses. This hardly finds mention in the English media. This is a new development, which if not brought to the attention of the public may cause grave harm to the nation. Do we have to live in perpetual fear of the Government? What then is the media meant for? To entertain us with colour, violence and sex week after week and month after month? And to forget what is relevant to our lives and times?
