Media Moments!

While the media discusses vehemently that Parliament and Assembly sessions in India are nowadays being reduced to mere political circus with no serious work happening, it's only the media that gets terribly bored when only work happens inside and nothing outside!
Outside yes! It's like an open colorful stage where charged performers do their antics with media waiting to relish and devour. Before the house begins performers come and demonstrate in this stage with peoples' problems inherited politically. When no such things happen media waits anyway for actors doing drama inside and announcing it outside moments later. But when only serious work continues inside continuously without noise or disruptions media is agitatedly bored.
Reporters and camera-persons get no options but only to compete for the limited chairs available outside and keep on visiting the canteens for umpteen cups of tea or coffee. Some get sick going on with their long standing 'standing' feats!
On one such 'boring' day of an Assembly session when work continued till late evening two cameramen were at their wits end. How long would they stand on with their cameras on for capturing nothing! One of them broke his frustration to the other, 'Damn it! Let somebody make some goddamned noise inside to disrupt the house so that we can do something here!'
Equally exasperated, the other exclaimed, 'Who will do it, man! There are hardly ten members inside!'
