CurrentAffairs : Postscript- too loud for comfort
I forgot to mention one example of Steven Sackur's (pic on the left)genius while interviewing Vandana Shiva, on BBC. The man demolished the lady with questions that were so pointed and points so well researched , that this lady of hyperbole was exposed for the hollow steam she is. I would not have said this normally being aware of Vandana Shiva's credentials, but she literally had no answers for many of Sackur's questions and rejoinders. The main thrust of Sackur's attack was that although many of the issues raised by Shiva were genuine, the language she used while raising them and the morbid colours she uses while painting many of her pet hates (Cargill, MNC's, Globalization among a million others), is overtly exaggerated and the scale of the dangers cited is not to the watermark level of "world annihalation" that Shiva (and others of her ilk, notably Medha Patkar, Arundhati Roy etc) would like us to believe. Ultimately, may a times in the interview, Shiva had to seek refuge in , what else, more hyperbole- rather than facts. You can skip to the end and leave a response.
