Delhi: In a world where news debates have degenerated into a chaos of biased voices, Emmanuel Upputuru, Founder of EFGH brand innovations, has released a video demonstrating a simple hack for all panellists who find it challenging to express their points of view on television news shows.

In the video Upputuru integrates himself into various news debates,  brandishing a piece of paper and a message. 

The video opens with a quote by Desmond Tito: “Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument.” Then it asks, “But how do you share your perfect argument on news debates? Haven’t they become like fish markets? Guests talk over each other. Guests are constantly interrupted. Some don’t even try to speak. Some are even muted. Next time you are invited as a guest, don’t feel voiceless. Try this hack:”

Then Upputuru appears out of nowhere in one of the news debates and holds out a piece of paper with the line: “Take a piece of paper. Write your main argument. Show it to the camera. Hold till they get it.” 

Each line is in a different debate on a different channel.

EFGH’s #ShowYourVoice aims to provide an alternative, accessible channel for communication. 

Upputuru said, “News Debates are very disturbing. It’s a landscape where nobody seems willing to listen to others' perspectives. I am tired of seeing panellists struggle to make themselves heard over the clamour of voices. The solution seemed obvious but I was wondering why don’t they just #ShowYourVoice. I believe every voice needs a chance to be heard, and #ShowYourVoice is a hack for democratising the freedom of expression. I hope this will force hosts to not take guest panellists for granted and find a way to let everyone express themselves and host better shows.”
