      I never said that THR Raaga should solely become a channel to reform Indians here – read my article properly before making comments. I am merely saying that along with entertainment, THR Raaga should include infotainment. If its purpose is solely for entertainment, why bother to air news? Let it be all out entertainment with no room for any information on what’s happening in the society. Shouldn’t have mourned for the loss of lives on MH370 and MH17. Uplifting Indians and informing Indians are two very different things – as a mass media THR Raaga’s manifesto is informing – uplifting is the follow up of informing. Along with news on entertainment, THR Raaga should also highlight Malaysians of Indian descent who have reached great heights like Linggeas, Naveena and Sukesh along with other issues that is imperative for the society to be in the know. Then, uplifting will follow suit. in case you missed it, here’s the defining line – I am not asking or expecting THR Raaga to be Puritan and become boring – all I’m saying is, that its management should play a significant role to benefit Malaysians of Indian descent in education and social quality aspects along with entertainment because THR Raaga has a wide listener base. Even Retamil is a Malaysian Tamil entertainment portal and Malaysian Indian Issues is our part in giving back to society, our fulfilling of social responsibility and we don’t intend to stop at anything at all for that matter. Now you cut the crap.

      Nope, THR Raaga is not just an entertainment channel – it is an information forwarding channel too. You get it right that besides entertainment, THR Raaga should also forward crucial information about the goings on in our society. Isn’t it a shame when a Malaysian Indian inventor got featured in Astro Awani but not THR Raaga when the latter is directed to the Malaysian Indian masses? That’s not social service – that’s informing about a guy who is the perfect role model for our youth.

      Keluar dari mana? I am just pinpointing how THR Raaga can do so much more than what it is doing now. I have switched to Minnal FM. Go on, worship matinee idols – nambe samuthayam urupatturum.

    Great post written, direct and concise, just what we need. Some haters here will not be able to take it as it must be close to heart. Siapa makan cili dia yang rasa kepedasan. Haha this post is bound to attract some angry DJ’s lol. There’s such things as constructive critiscim, just by saying that it is not THR Raaga’s part in social reforming and asking people to go to MIC to complain is as shallow and brainless as them closing one eye and sapu issue bawah carpet. Anyways if only Indians stop fighting and work together this country will be a much better place.
