Are we cultuarally becoming decadent?

It was frustrating to say the least :( Every TV channel was playing the live telecast of Micheal Jackson's funeral (plus commercialized drama). It made me wonder isn't there anything more important pertaining to India and its people than a foreign dancer's death? Innocent people were getting killed and stabbed on the roads of Mysooru, fear had gripped an Indian city but our dear media chose to write editorials about Micheal's death and also live telecast his memorial service!

Shri Balbir Punj has articulated the decadent cultural awareness amongst our people and media's editorial policies which hypes up anything western in today's article in The New Indian Express. The link follows. The article is certainly worth reading and throws up some thought provoking questions.
