Why the print media flourishes
Unlike most parts of the world where internet usage has resulted in the decrease in newspaper circulation, the print media continues to flourish in Asia. In fact, in small towns in India, the newspapers get far more advertisements, compared to major newspapers in large metro cities. On most days, the small town newspapers in Goa like Herald and Navhind Times have 2 to 4 pages of classified advertisements , in metro cities like Mumbai, DNA/Hindustan Times newspaper have less than one page of classified ads. The reason for this is simple, in India many people (especially outside metros) do not trust the internet and online content due to the lack of honesty, the unwillingness of credit where it is due. No amount of distribution of free computers and laptops is going to change this fact, I have spoken to many people, they say we have a laptop at home, we got it as part of the free government scheme, it is lying there unused.
This online publisher has first hand experience of this dishonesty. Blackmailers and extortionists who this webmaster has never ever interacted with are encouraged, protected and supported when they make blatantly false allegations against a webmaster without any kind of evidence. A webmaster is put under surveillance and all emails, SMSes and phone calls are intercepted and diverted, effectively destroying the business.
Unlike most other fields , where competence matters, women are judged exclusively on the basis of looks, hairstyles and subject to identity theft if they are not glamorous enough . Internet companies have no qualms taking money from one person and then offering unlimited support to their glamorous girlfriends and relatives in identity theft. These girlfriends are both technically INCOMPETENT and unwilling to invest a single rupee online, else they would have started a business on their own. However they are given unlimited support in their fraud attempts by powerful internet companies. On other hand , these unprincipled internet companies have no qualms humiliating their real customers, by spreading false rumors that she does not know anything, and stealing assignments from her.
Frauds who falsely claims to be involved in this business, gets support from some of the largest internet companies because she has powerful relatives and friends. She is extremely shameless, technically incompetent but gets a lot of privileges because of her lies and powerful relatives and friends. Why do some internet companies take money from one person, and give complete support to a fraud who is not spending a single penny with them? How does one understand or explain this warped sense of values, this hypocrisy?
In fact, the amount of harassment faced by an experienced webmaster is unmatched in most other fields. Directed energy weapons ( meant for terrorists and criminals) are used repeatedly on the webmaster causing severe headaches. In fact, the people who control these expensive and dangerous weapons (we do not know who they are, they conveniently remain anonymous) think that they are doing a favor by allowing a webmaster to even use a computer or laptop during the day. All internet usage is monitored very closely, and if the internet connection is made during the day, directed energy weapons will be used with full force, to destroy the health of the webmaster.
Till the companies and bosses in the internet industry learn to give credit where it is due, stop promoting frauds, stop lookism, reduce nepotism, the growth of online media will be hampered.
