Letter to the Editor Sent to :
Dear Editor: Today is World Telecommunication Day While there is no doubt that telecommunication is important how do we ensure it is used for ethical purpose? Increasingly telecommunication is being privatised. Yesterday I received three messages on my Airtel mobile. "Hi I am Heidi. Click to Watch my Video" I have complained several times (i am asked do it over the phone by airtel) and I have complained to State Commission for Women. It has not worked. Another message came land available near Tiruvallur, do you want to invest? If all of us upper middle class continue purchasing land where will land be left for agriculture and landless to buy? Yet another message came do you want bank loan? Probably I will get it at 11%, while the poor as per the Draft Malegaon Committee Report has put a ceiling of 24% , and the market rate in informal sector is much higher. I wonder why private Airtel and other mobile companies etc do not tell about rights of dalits, adiviasis, women, Muslims, landless manual workers, unorganised workers etc? Why messages on inter-faith spirituality are not spread- where pathways are one where one moves together towards justice ? Why they are not told of non party political formations which they could join or help lines for them? I have just taken the example of mobiles here. But this applies to V SAT, television, radio etc Frankly, people like me are part of the problem. Yes, I can go complain to consumer court, but I do not make the time. I can switch to BSNL mobile, but then how will i know what messages come from private ones?
