TV Reporters….Learn to !@#%^$$$ pronounce !!!!!

14 Oct

Dear Reporters and Newsreaders on CNN-IBN, Times Now,NDTV and all the other etc etc Channels… please note the following:

1. Its not Karnatak… its Karnataka…see the extra “A” at the end? Come on is it so hard?

2. Its Bengaluru not Bangaluru, not Bangaloooooru

3. The CM’s name is pronounced Sidda-raamaiah..NOT Sidda-ramya..if you can’t say it just say Siddu like the rest of us…

4. Finally its Kannada…not Kannad …again its just an extra “A”..if you guys need to get paid extra to say it..just say so to your employer !!!

Do I call you Rajdip? No its Rajdeep…

Do I call you Arnav..no its Arnab…

Do I call you..don’t remember the name of anyone on NDTV !!!!!

Take some time and effort before you start blabbering on National TV.. If you can’t, there are others who can…

    Vijay,
    It’s not only the News channels that have renamed our state as ‘Karnatak’. I have come across this while browsing through food shows as well . I guess it’s much easier for them to pronounce Gothic/Nordic names 😉

      That is correct Shwetha and it is really really annoying…
