    Sometimes back, a close relative from my family was looking for internship in UK and they had a small interview over the lunch with an editor from BBC, lets call them Dick. Dick was reviewing my relative's blog posts and few articles they had written in college magazine and felt pretty happy with their writing style and all. However, one thing that was not going well with Dick was the fact that my relative refused to identify themselves as an oppressed minority from India.

    Dick was practically goading my relative to sketch a rough narrative around social issues faced by first generation migrants -- a topic my relative had no interest in -- with focus on how middle class and oppressed minorities migrate out of India due to intolerance. My relative could have secured the internship if they could write -- admittedly false -- article on the lines which Dick wanted them to tow.

    This is practically how BBC works, they get their agenda handed down from upper management to editors and finally to rank and file journalists who then write narratives around them. Dick essentially wanted my relative to write an article as a rough mini autobiography of their early life in India, from a point of view of a well to do minority family, with an ulterior motive to defame India for being an intolerant hotbed of hate.
