Was browsing throug the paper which is the first thing I do when I enter the office after switching on my system and there is 1 headline amongst the others that caught my attention, “143 TV channels want to enter Indian market”. And I was like wow, aren’t the 100 odd channels enough to entertain, inform, irritate, hook the audience, grab attention, and of course the so very famous “the breaking news” coined by all the news channels where even a monkey entering someone’s kitchen can be a breaking news..God alone knows what breaks whom, where and how, when the news is broken on the channel!
According to the news, media industry is seeking permission from the Information and broadcasting ministry to up link 143 new channels. I can only wonder as to what can those channels present to the audience. Agreed from a saas bahu series to Rakhi Sawant ka swayamwar, everything is accepted and gains popularity and rises to fame at least when it kick starts, but then it so cliched! I haven’t been watching television for the past 7 years now, from the time I stepped out of home and even if I have to pass my time I would rather watch some music channel or a movie channel which is so much more entertaining and refreshing. But I guess most of us hardly have the time & patience to sit through the shows or the inclination to watch the stupid melodramatic shows which has no head or tail!
All I can say is it is so so very cliched!
