The renowned anchor of NDTV got so annoyed that she repeated the same through her account which was accepted widely in a negative way. She even took to troll saying that they publicised her personal contact details as well as wroth full of slang. One of the most eye-opening incidents and that too shameful came in limelight when she shared her views on the comments. The total base of the story comes as a series of incidents between Barkha Dutt and activists Kavita Krishnan’s mother. The dispute started on petty issues scattering into as larger platform. The activists mother even made a “confirmation” on whether Dutt had “free sex” or not.
Working on a public platform gives you the liberty of freedom of speech but freedom to such extent might give leverage to many of us while speaking on a full proforma. We as media representatives ought to choose between a war of words or war of slurred up tone.
