बीता हफ़्ता कई वजहों से चर्चा में रहा. चुनाव आयोग ने लोकसभा चुनाव की तारीखों की घोषणा की जिसके साथ ही नेताओं की बयानबाजी का दौर शुरू हो गया. इस हफ़्ते की कुछ प्रमुख घटनाओं मसलन कर्नाटक के बीजेपी नेता अनंत कुमार हेगड़े का राहुल गांधी और उनके परिवार पर आपत्तिजनक टिप्पणी करना, हिंदुस्तान यूनीलीवर के उत्पाद ‘सर्फ़ एक्सेल’ के होली से जुड़े एक विज्ञापन पर उठा विवाद, अदालत की अवमानना के आरोप के चलते शिलॉन्ग टाइम्स की एडिटर पैट्रीशिया मुखीम पर मेघालय हाईकोर्ट द्वारा लगाया गया जुर्माना और जुर्माने की अदायगी में असफल रहने पर 6 महीने की जेल के साथ अख़बार बंद करने का आदेश, आदि विषय इस बार की चर्चा में शामिल रहे. चर्चा में इस बार पत्रकार राहुल कोटियाल ने बतौर मेहमान शिरकत की. साथ ही न्यूज़लॉन्ड्री के स्तंभकार आनंद वर्धन व लेखक-पत्रकार अनिल यादव भी चर्चा में शामिल रहे. चर्चा का संचालन न्यूज़लॉन्ड्री के कार्यकारी संपादक अतुल चौरसिया ने किया. चर्चा की शुरुआत करते हुए अतुल ने कहा कि हमारे समाज या समय में हर चीज़ के साथ विवाद जुड़ जाने की एक परंपरा विकसित हो गई है और अब किसी भी चीज़ का विवादों के साए में चले जाना आम सी बात हो गई है. चुनाव की तारीख़ों के ऐलान के बाद रमज़ान के महीने में चुनाव होने और चुनाव की तारीख़ों व फेज़ को लेकर भी विवाद हो गया. राजनीतिक गलियारों में लगाई जा रही इन अटकलों का ज़िक्र करते हुए कि चुनाव की तारीख़ें बीजेपी के मुफ़ीद हैं, अतुल ने सवाल किया कि इस विवाद को कैसे देखा जाए? क्या इसमें विपक्ष को किसी भी तरह का डिसएडवांटेज है? जवाब देते हुए अनिल ने कहा, “ये चुनाव काफ़ी अविश्वास के माहौल में हो रहे हैं. एक संभावना यह भी थी कि क्या पता चुनाव हों ही न. सर्जिकल स्ट्राइक के बाद ये अटकलें लगाई गईं कि हो सकता है प्रधानमंत्री मोदी आपातकाल लागू करने के लिए इस अवसर का इस्तेमाल करें और चुनाव आगे चलकर तब कराएं जब परिस्थितियां उनके पक्ष में हो जाएं दूसरा एक बहुत बड़ी आशंका पिछले पांच सालों में हवा में रही है कि ईवीएम के ज़रिए चुनाव में गड़बड़ी की जाती है. तो एक तरह से सरकार और चुनाव आयोग के प्रति पिछले पांच सालों में एक अविश्वास का माहौल हवा में रहा है और उसी पृष्ठभूमि में ये चुनाव हो रहे हैं. तो जहां असुरक्षा होती है, अविश्वास होता है, हर चीज़ के दूसरे अर्थ निकाले जाते हैं. और मुझे यह लगता है कि चुनाव का कई फेज़ में होना किसी के भी पक्ष जा सकता है. सिर्फ भाजपा को ही इसका फायदा मिलेगा, यह सोचना ठीक नहीं है.” विवाद लाज़मी था या ग़ैरज़रूरी? इस सवाल का जवाब देते हुए आनंद कहते हैं, “हम लोग अतिविश्लेषण युग में रह रहे हैं, हर चीज़ का विश्लेषण बहुत अधिक होता है, और अतिविश्लेषण के बाद कुछ न कुछ तो निष्कर्ष निकलता ही है. या निष्कर्ष तय करके फिर विश्लेषण कर लिया जा रहा है. यह दोनों ही चीज़ें हो रही हैं.” आनंद ने इसी में आगे जोड़ते हुए कहा कि अगर इस तरह कि अटकलें इवीएम के स्तर पर हैं तो फिर चुनाव की तारीख़ें और चरण क्या हैं उस आरोप का कुछ ख़ास मतलब नहीं रह जाता. नवीन पटनायक द्वारा 33% और ममता बनर्जी द्वारा 35% टिकट महिलाओं को दिया जाना क्या बाकी दलों पर एक दबाव की तरह काम करेगा? महिला आरक्षण का कानून पास हुए बिना ही राजनीतिक दल इस तरह के सकारात्मक बदलाव करने के लिए मजबूर हैं? इस सवाल के जवाब में राहुल कहते हैं, “बिल्कुल! पहली ही नज़र में यह बहुत सकारात्मक कदम लगता है. अब बीजेपी-कांग्रेस जैसे दलों में फैसले आलाकमान की तरफ से लिए जाते हैं. टिकटों का निर्धारण वहीं से होता है. ऐसे में इन पार्टियों के लिए टिकट बंटवारे में 33% सीटें महिलाओं के देने की बात करना मुश्किलों भरा हो जाएगा क्योंकि तब इन्हें कैंडिडेट ढूंढ़ने में ख़ासी मशक्कत करनी पड़ेगी.” इसी क्रम में बाकी विषयों पर भी बेहद गंभीर व दिलचस्प चर्चा हुई. बाकी विषयों पर पैनल की विस्तृत राय जानने-समझने के लिए पूरी चर्चा सुनें.

In the latest episode of NL Hafta, the usual gang of Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by journalist Kaveree Bamzai to discuss Pulwama attack, harassment of Kashmiri student in Dehradun, MBS’ visit to India and more. The conversation kicks off with Kaveree talking about surviving as an independent, freelance journalist in the industry. She also talks about the casual sexism and misogyny in newsrooms. Then, the panel moves on to discuss the attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama where 44 soldiers lost their lives. Manisha, while talking about the news coverage of the Pulwama attack, says, “Newspapers did a far better job of telling us what happened, the mastermind, raising questions on how 300kgs of explosive just goes through undetected.” Kaveree jumps in and feels the basic questions were ignored, she says, “It was a marketing opportunity which both PM Modi and TV channels saw.” She also mentions how Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Yasin Malik were forgotten, in the recent order of security withdrawal of separatists. Following the discussion on Pulwama attack and the back and forth between India and Pakistan, the panel also discusses how some journalists in India had to go through harassment. Journalists like Ravish Kumar and Barkha Dutt were harassed with lewd messages and photos. Defending Barkha’s move to put out all the messages and photos on Twitter, Kaveree said, “She has every right to tell people that this is the kind of abuse I am getting and if they don’t understand, to give them visual proof, it’s called shock therapy and it usually works.” The panel also discussed CobraPost’s Operation Karaoke, Supreme Court’s order asking Anil Ambani to pay dues in the Ericson case, Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman’s visit to India and more.

Manisha says she agrees with the Madras High Court's observations on Delhi media's lack of priority in covering the case, but Abhinandan says he's conflicted. The conversation shifts to how newspapers in Assam went on a three-day boycott of all state government news, ads and photographs in protest against its alleged apathy.

The panel talks about gender pay gap across newsrooms, Rahul Gandhi's use of "ji" for Jaish chief Masood Azhar, Election Commission's presser, custodial deaths in Bihar, government advertisements and more. The discussion starts with Ayush talking about a YouGov poll on dwindling job opportunities in the country. He mentions that the females surveyed are conscious of the disparity in pay. Cherry mentions the BBC's gender pay gap story and asks Amit about his experience with different media organisations. Amit speaks of the prejudice against women journalist that restricts them to female-centric content. Reflecting on what was over-reported by sections of the media, Gaurav talks about the internet outrage over Rahul Gandhi using "ji" to address Masood Azhar. The panel also discusses the misuse of laws such as sedition. Amit talks about the announcements made by the Election Commission and what does no-go for simultaneous elections in Jammu and Kashmir mean. He also expresses his disappointment at the under-reporting of the custodial deaths in Bihar. Ayush and Gaurav share their opinion on the Huffington Post report about the Indian cricket team wearing camouflage caps. “…It's not difficult to see the emotion that they are coming from, post-Pulwama, but does it really require PCB [Pakistan Cricket Board] …to say that you all are hurting our sentiments?” says Gaurav. Ayush remarks, “They [Indian government] have given patriotism a bad name by taking it to very irrational extremes but that shouldn’t limit our horizon of looking at things.” Cherry discusses the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and some of the announcements made by the Election Commission.

The podcast kicks off with Abhinandan who, though a Marvel Universe enthusiast, wasn't convinced by their latest offering Captain Marvel. Rajyasree expresses her lack of interest in watching the movie. She then discusses Ricky Gervais’s Netflix series After Life, saying: “It is one of the finest shows that he’s created in a while.” Abhinandan chimes in, mentioning Gervais’s endearing performance that accompanies his dark humour. The conversation moves to the Surf Excel ad #RangLaayeSang which, contrary to its intentions, invoked some amount of communal disharmony. Both Abhinandan and Rajyasree think the ad managed to convey its message and express their dissatisfaction with the kind of responses that have popped up on social media. The duo then discusses the documentary Leaving Neverland. Talking about the documentary's format, Abhinandan says it's a compelling watch. Rajyasree praises the extensive detailing of facts to allow viewers to reach their own conclusions. Abhinandan tries to dissect Micheal Jackson’s position while emphasising that it shouldn't be taken as a justification. He says, "I believe Micheal Jackson was insane … on a different wavelength … I think he was coming from a place of love and not damage he truly believed this love was genuine love.” Rajyasree disagrees, citing examples of warped love and sexual grooming.
