Important Guidelines

  • In real interview one will never get much time to express, so try to visualize and then write succinctly.  Do not consider it an essay
  • Raise counter questions when reviewing others. This will broaden the dimensions as the same will happen in interview.
  • Counter questions will help in better expression as well as expose to various aspects one may have missed while writing. It will lead to better understanding of the issue.

The issue for discussion today is the following:

You might be aware of the concept of post truth. It gained currency after the election of Donald Trump as the President of the US. However, the concept of post truth has also been applied to Indian politics in certain cases.

Do you think post truth is a reality today? Has social media played a role in the so called post truth era? Substantiate your views by taking suitable examples.

    Post truth is manipulating the truth by not basing it on real facts but emotions. It is just gaining grounds as seen in Trump victory, banning 7 nations in the name of immigrant issues when they are actually a huge help in USA’s growth, BREXIT, even Indian politics. Blaming a girl for being anti national when she tried to throw light on the social media trolls threatening her of rape, MANIPULATING the truth and using it to give evidence and prove it as reality can have serious impact. Politicians call it the ALTERNATIVE FACTS, how can truth be anything but truth. Anything other than truth is a LIE. Social media is playing a huge role in this as social media acts as a GATEKEEPER, it gives a person only those or news facts that drive a person’s opinion in the direction they want to. MAJORITARIAN issue, most of the people believe what majority believes.
    “even if you are minority of one, truth is the truth.” Today people like being ignorant and unaware, they like being seeded with the information that only agrees with their opinions. Whatever goes against them is not true. A FAKE REALITY. Social media campaigns no one tries to actually know the cause but as few celebrity do it,everyone starts doing it like dumb sheep. POWER TO QUESTION? is the biggest power, democracy can give a person.
    TRUTH is called truth because it can fight all battles of time, lies and so called alternative facts. TRUTH prevails all. But this questions our ability to be aware and our ability to question. WORLD IS BASED ON TRUTH and history gives gazillion evidences about the POWER OF TRUTH.

      I dont agree with u on the Delhi issue, anti national comment is not expected from an Indian citizen and must not be supported. We are eating , sleeping, growing on Indian land and we are opposing it. It is like backstabbing our mother. Though I agree with u on the front that she should not have been counter threatened of rape, that was a crime.
