No country has registered more coronavirus cases so quickly as India has done in recent days.

India is now the country with the most number of COVID-19 cases after the United States, overtaking Brazil on Monday.

The economy is in free fall.

GDP contracted by MINUS 23.9% in the April-June quarter.

The Chinese are engaged in a daily display of military upmanship in Ladakh.

Shots were fired on Monday night at the Line of Actual Control for the first time since 1975.

20 Indian soldiers lost their lives in June.

Millions and millions of Indians have lost their jobs.

Millions and millions of Indians live on the cusp of financial desolation.

None of this is news for the shrieking news television channels who obsess all day and all night about the many conspiracies they spin around Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death by suicide.

Their daily and nightly target is actor Rhea Chakraborty who they attack and pillory without the slighest remorse.

Uttam Ghosh offers his take on the shocking media treatment of a young woman whose only crime appears to be loving a young man who decided to take his life.
