Drama is overboard on social media: Prasoon Joshi

Mumbai, Sep 17 (IANS) Lyricist, screenwriter and ad guru Prasoon Joshi feels social media is in its initial stage and the reflection of real life is missing from the platform because the drama on the platform is overboard.

Every now and then, Twitter spats are turning into controversies. In such a scenario, he feels people will become mature in using the media only over a period of time.


“Social media is in an early stage right now. With social media, the thought enters your mind and one immediately puts it up, but I feel there is no filter in social media,” Joshi told IANS.

He is sure things will change.

“People will get mature, but in which form, I don’t know. People are only talking in hyperbole and I feel life is not such an extreme.

“The reflection of real life is what I am missing from social media today because the drama is overboard. People will start feeling stupid after a while and will become more mature.”

Joshi, who pens socially relevant songs and poetry off and on, says he has not given a thought to joining politics.

“I would like to contribute in shaping the thinking of country, via discussions. Active politics… I haven’t thought of it yet. As a citizen, I feel we are going through a change… Where this change is taking us… We will have to see.

“We are a part of the change. I’m not observing India, I am experiencing it,” said the 47-year-old.
