alternatives.
Passage
Cyber Bogeys
The cyberworld is ultimately ungovernable. This is alarming as well as convenient, sometimes,
convenient because alarming. Some Indian politicians use this to great advantage. When there
is an obvious failure in governance during a crisis they deflect attention from their own
incompetence towards the ungovernable. So, having failed to prevent nervous citizens from
fleeing their cities of work by assuring them of proper protection, some national leaders are
now busy trying to prove to one another and to panicprone Indians, that a mischievous
neighbour has been using the Internet and social networking sites to spread dangerous
rumours. And the Centre's automatic reaction is to start blocking these sites and begin
elaborate and potentially endless negotiations with Google, Twitter and Facebook about access
to information. If this is the official idea of prompt action at a time of crisis among
communities, then Indians have more reason to fear their protectors than the nebulous
mischiefmakers of the cyberworld. Wasting time gathering proof, blocking vaguely suspicious
SSC Combined Graduate Level Exam 2014: Complete Guide
websites, hurling accusations across the border and worrying about bilateral relations are ways
of keeping busy with inessentials because one does not quite know what to do about the
essentials of a difficult situation. Besides, only a fifth of the 245 websites blocked by the Centre
mention the people of the North East or the violence in Assam. And if a few morphed images
and spurious texts can unsettle an entire nation, then there is something deeply wrong with the
nation and with how it is being governed. This is what its leaders should be addressing
immediately, rather than making a wrongheaded display of their powers of censorship.
It is just as absurd and part of the same syndrome, to try to ban Twitter accounts that parody
despatches from the Prime Minister's Office. To describe such forms of humour and dissent as
'misrepresenting' the PMOas if Twitterers would take these parodies for genuine despatches
from the PMOmakes the PMO look more ridiculous than its parodists manage to. With the
precedent forsuch action set recently by the Chief Minister of West Bengal, this is yet another
proof that what Bengal thinks today India will think tomorrow. Using the cyberworld for flexing
the wrong muscles is essentially not funny. It might even prove to be quite dangerously
distracting.
