I watch TV for a reason. Only for one reason. For pure feel good entertainment. I don't want to cry while am watching it. I detest most of the soaps they air on TV for this reason. They seem stuck with the typical Ekta Kapoor saas-bahu serials even if the mentor seems to have moved ahead with better plots herself.
Nor am I much of a fan of comedy shows - comedy circus, the great Indian laughter challenge... whatever. One time I sat down to see them (after many recommendations) the result was well... confusing. I just remember staring at the screen (maybe with few question marks hovering around my head) while sidhu just laughed on and on.. and on. I don't get the jokes in Hindi with their double meanings or maybe there wasn't any double meaning at all. Dhanya, being the big high funda tubelight that she is, finds it much better to switch to more understandable topics than wreck her brains over something that she will never ever be able to get the gist of.
Am totally in awe of people who stare at the stock updates on TV with full anticipation because I don't understand the a-b-c of it. I gather its all about buying and selling of stocks in accordance to decrease and increase of market prices. But whats with all those points they show on TV? Numbers always used to scare me... oh well. If anyone has the patience to explain all that to me, please feel welcome to do so. And when you are emailing me, please do NOT go greedy with details. Thank you.
So what exactly do I enjoy on television ? Apart from apna Indian movies, there are other actual real life entertainment to look out for too..
- Zardari flirting with 'gorgeous' and 'huggable' Palin. Now, why would he do that ? Does he see his Benazir Bhutto in her ? Doesn't he know that she's married ? Or does he feel... kuch bhi chalega now that he's single... and obviously ready to mingle ?
-Lindsay Lohan admitting shes going out with Samantha Ronson and blasting her father off in her online blog. Wah wah! So, apparently she went out with dozens of guys before realising shes a lesbian. As if life wasn't confusing enough....
-The Big Bang experiment! If they are trying to recreate something that made the universe, are we in for some big trouble or what ?
As you can see, news can be very very interesting. Who needs soaps when there's NDTV 24x7 ?
Talking about NDTV... I simply love it! I watch it more than other channels nowadays. I am a hugggeee fan of Prannoy Roy. Not cos hes the founder of NDTV. But because he's the only guy I have seen who looks soooo damn good with a beard :-) But sadly he doesn't appear much. We have Miss (yeah, she's still a miss) Burkha Dutt who keeps talking non-stop and doesn't give anyone else an iota of chance (check out the debates). But that doesn't hide the fact that shes so knowledgeable about things. We have a Swati Maheshwari who looks very similar to Soha Ali Khan. And we have a lot more others whose names I don't remember but all of whom have an incredible fashion sense, fantastic hair styles, and a personality to boot ;)
Style with substance... what more can you ask for ?
P.S - Am not working for NDTV.
