The power of such silent revolutions has sent many a ripple across establishments. both political and non-political. The Jessica Lal murder case has been re-opened following a TV channel submitting a petition to the President on behalf of the thousands of SMS messages it received during a live show conducted by it. The reservation issue has triggerred off heated debates across media circles following a spate of SMS out-pourings. Hi-Tech is the way to go.
