lies, lies and statistics…
As a rule, I do not watch television, but last week i watched the first 5-7 minutes of Satyameva Jayate – Aamir Khan’s new serial on Hero vs. Villain.
When I say Hero vs Villain I mean AK’s one sided show which has a HERO (AK) (whom you HAVE to support because even in your wildest dreams YOU cannot support the OTHER SIDE!!
This meant that AK had to create as a great an impact as possible.
So he started by saying “According to the statistics available with the government ….out of 100 people in the casualty ward of a hospital….40% are victims of domestic abuse…and according to another private research…the figure is 84%….Now let us not accept both, let us take the average as 60%….or let us say :
50% of the women in INDIA are victims of domestic abuse.
Awesome misuse of statistics, Mr. Aamir Khan. Congrats. Which means if I know 100 women, 50 are victims of domestic abuse.
From the casualty ward of a hospital as the reference base to the whole of India is a dramatic change…..did anybody else notice this?
