Indian Embassy – Real Juice – Real motive, and Indian Media

‘Real’ Embassy

real-embassy Indian Embassy accused Nepali media of improperly posting news about the evidence of finding non-consumable materials in Real branded products. The photographs of tainted products published in various newspapers do seem genuine.

Even if Nepali press have exaggerated (which doesn’t seem true) some unanswered question are:

  1. Why does Indian Embassy have to issue a press release in this issue? Is it such a big issue? Does such minor events affect the intergovernmental relations between two countries?
  2. Is Dabur Nepal (or Dabur India) so incapable of defending itself?

Indian Embassy and Nepali Press

There were reports about the tainted products from all over Nepal. Given our media house’s capabilities and dedication, I don’t believe Nepali media can create such a large scaled fabricated story (as Indian Embassy told). And, it was not a single media house that reported the story. Apart from Nayapatrika, Weeklynepal, ABC news, Kantipur, radiomirmire, Pokharatoday, Pokharanews, Yubabahas; a lot of media had published independent news on the issue.

  1. Can Indian Embassy point out which of these media houses they were talking about?

The news, photographs, and quotes of general public don’t look fabricated. They are from different sources, involve different people and are from different parts of the country. For example, some of the places from where reports of inconsumable products were reported (collected from different sources):

  1. Kapilvasthu (Badrinath Guesthouse, Chandrauta) – A government official witnessed 20 tainted packets.
  2. Pokhara (Bulaud Bazaar store) – The officials of Dabur Nepal forced the owner to close the shop.
  3. Kathmandu (Mohan Cold Store, Anamnagar) – Sagarmatha TV featured the story.
  4. More reports from different parts of Pokhara
  5. Birgunj – people admitted to hospital after drinking Real juice

Misleading Indian Media Campaign

Various media bodies in Nepal have expressed serious concern over Friday’s statement of Indian embassy.

However, Indian media are doing their own media campaign against Nepali media. (When Embassy itself is that irresponsible, I can’t blame the Indian media!)

Some of the headlines in Indian media:

  1. Dabur faces smear campaign in Nepal
  2. Dabur faces misleading media campaign in Nepal
  3. Indian joint ventures face smear campaign in Nepal

In contrast, Nepali media headlines read:

  1. Media bodies irked by Indian embassy statement; ask it to apologize
  2. Media orgs caution Indian embassy to respect diplomatic norms
  3. सञ्चार संस्थाहरुद्वारा भारतीय दूताबाससँग क्षमायाचना गर्न माग
  4. सञ्चार सगठनहरुद्वारा प्रेस स्वतन्त्रताको मान्यता पालना गर्न भारतीय दूतावासलाई सचेत

  1. Before we come to a conclusion jst after seeing the picture or the videos in the media, we should analyze all the facts first. The first thing the video or the picture hasnt mentioned the expiry date, if the juice is past the date of expiration then it may be obvious that there may be some foreign body in the juice, that is why it has a date of manufacture and expiration printed. The other fact is that the juice should be air tight. and the media who telecasted the news  may have tampered the carton by making tiny holes which we cannot even see in the video left it for fews days and then took the video. In that case the micro bacteria are obvious to be produced.
    There are varioous other things that we need to consider before we conclude.BTW i think everything is a conspiracy. Dabur Nepal may be producing such low quality products, or may be media has gone nuts.. This country has no freaking regulation.
