Since the past three days, the only thing you could see when you switched on any TV news channel was the face of the Athiloka Sundari Sridevi. The coverage regarding her demise was appreciated but the way media went overboard trying to cook conspiracy theories and speculation on her death was disgusting.

Meanwhile, few groups also raised a point that when a place like Syria was burning and children are getting killed, our media was focused only on Sridevi. That way, all are firing media but here is a question of truth, what is the use of showing news and bombings on Syria?

Sridevi is connected to nearly five generations of people in a very emotional way across the nation. After Indira Gandhi, it was only she who got this level of coverage and following. Even when Jayalalithaa died, it was restricted to a regional level. No matter how much is spoken about Syria nothing is going to change there. On the other hand, this is a tribute to Sridevi and many will get connected.
