This week, host Basant Kumar is joined by freelance journalists Neeraj Priyadarshy and Prashant Pandey.
The conversation begins with Prashant’s as he details the flood situation in 17 districts of Uttar Pradesh. "For many years, these people won't be able to forget the pain of their destroyed homes,” says Prashant, adding that villages near the Ghagra and Sharda rivers witness such scale of damage every year.
Neeraj then briefs the panel on his about the drought-hit districts of Bihar and the difference between the IMD and state agriculture department weather reports. Neeraj tells Basant that skewed data compounds a problem that’s already politicised.
This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.
