When it comes to media these days, the mantra is like 'do me a favour I'll do a favour for your film or other project'. But there are many polite, honest and upright people among journalists who have set certain standards for themselves and also for the industry they are part of.
Other day senior journalist and writer Pasupuleti Rama Rao has unveiled his latest book, titled 'Tera Venuka Dasari' and it's like a semi-biographical account of the good deeds taken up by late Darsakaratna Dasari Narayana Rao. Megastar Chiranjeevi has graced this occasion as a Chief Guest and revealed an interesting thing about this journalist.
"During my early days, when I'm struggling as an actor, one day I read a small article on me written in Jyothi Chitra magazine, where they praised my talents. For such small actors like me back then, such articles give a lot of self-confidence and boost us up. It was written by Pasupuleti and when I met him, I offered him a 100 rupees note, which was a huge amount for me back then, but he shuddered as if something wrong has happened. He refused to take the money politely and confirmed that he will keep encouraging talents and that's his job. He's the true blue progressive thinker" said Chiranjeevi.
As time passed, one could see how media houses have changed big time with each journalist taking sides of few actors and the addition of political interests only worsened the situation. Let's have a look at Pasupuleti as an example and rethink!!
