OLW #17: Chennai Floods, Delhi Pollution & Indian Media

OLW #17: Chennai Floods, Delhi Pollution & Indian Media

“Hey, did you read about those floods? So unfortunate!” “Yeah, but everybody I know is fine, so it’s not that bad.” Is that how we gauge disasters? And, can competition from private companies in the weather prediction business really make the Indian Met department pull up its socks? Anuvab & Kunaal don’t think so – “The competition will spur them to make it rain, just to prove a point (and their “predications”),” they say. Also on the episode: The motivations of Pakistani generals agreeing to get abused on live Indian news TV debates. How no one is churning out actual “news” anymore. And, can Delhi government’s move to restrict traffic movement according to a car’s registration number work when a traffic cop can’t even read the number plate amid all the smog?
