Most of us accept many myths to be valid until they are proved wrong scientifically, and when we get an opportunity to take a look at such efforts. This week I found a few videos and one non-video story that effectively busted a few myths.

The television coverage of the operations undertaken to rescue 2-year-old Sujith Wilson who had fallen into an abandoned borewell was criticised by many. On the one hand, the coverage brought the tragedy under the limelight forcing action on part of various agencies, while on the other hand, it was a fight for TRPs at the cost of a major tragedy for one family.
