Days after the ruling AIADMK objected to the burning of free mixers and grinders in the Vijay-starrer Sarkar since removed , the Madras High Court on Thursday disapproved of the practice of the State government providing freebies to people irrespective of their economic status. Such a culture had made people lazy and led to a situation where migrant workers from northern States were expected to perform menial jobs, the court observed. A Division Bench of Justices N. Kirubakaran and Abdul Quddhose made the observation while dealing with a case related to providing rice free of cost to all ration card-holders under the PDS without restricting the supply to families below the poverty line BPL. However, successive governments have extended the benefits to all for political benefits.

There are those, including the government, who argue that putting free cricket on every television in India is not only good, but also national duty. They re missing the point: Ever since the government issued a directive that sports channels would have to share their feed with Doordarshan, the state-run broadcaster, officials in private channels spoke of challenging the ordinance in court. It was absolutely illegal and utter piracy, they said, and could not believe that a move this daring was even made.
No to a culture of freebies

There has never been such a time of intense TV rugby commentary competition in this country as RWC gets under way. Commentary teams are vying to attract viewers. In this sometimes feature within the Herald on Sunday s RWC coverage, we air our views on who did the best job around the opening game. Rugby followers watching on TV know what they are going to get with the Sky crew - but what about those who do not normally get a crack at live rugby broadcasts, given the usual monopoly of the pay TV people? While free-to-air matches are scattered around TV3 had to screen their offering at the graveyard of 11pm on Friday night , those without Sky in their homes will gravitate to those showing the action live. But they will still need to decide which commentary team they choose when there are options - as there were in the opening match on Friday. To that end, TV1 took a clear lead in the first shots fired; largely due to the unearthing of a new broadcast force in former All Black Jeff Wilson. Coaching hasn t yet been all that kind to the former All Black wunderkind but he displayed an aptitude for television that must have pleased his broadcast employers. His analysis was quick, clear and authoritative; with insight. In a game that can be confusing for the part-time viewer not to mention the full-on fan Wilson often explained what was going on and why that penalty had been awarded.
