    Default News entertains like never before

    Indeed there lies a very thin line and I think media should never cross that line. Indeed it is a fact that viewers like spicy content and as India is crowded with some 20+ news channels, attracting audience's eye balls has never been easy. Vying for over 600 crore of advertising pie, seldom media managers cross the line.

    Now this leads to b*****ng of news channels and I tell you that I am a die hard NDTV fan. It amazes to see their team unitedly covering all major events without any crap and utmost decency. But watching Bihar elections this times, I surely missed Rajdeep and I felt the news analysis was incomplete without him. I am sure many a visitors besides Barkha miss him each and every moment. My wishes for his upcoming CNBC news channel.

    Pranav has indeed given new dimensions to news and its production. He is a true Indian TV News Czar and that reflects onscreen as well. He has always been my role model. Now he will have to face the challenge from his own colleague who carries the same esthetics, work culture, creativity and punch with him. Indeed Rajdeep knows how to connect with the audience.

    And regarding the likes of Star, Zee or any other, they are way behind in English news production. Despite of much lesser share of viewers, English news channel eat a much greater pie for advertising budgets and NDTV English will remain Pranav's cash cow. On financial/consumer front, CNBC is a leader. See how Rajdeep fares in his second inning.

    Watching news has never been more exciting. If you have a good taste, you know where to look for. Thank god that we are blessed with so many options right now. It is not a time-killer like stupid k-soaps but a much better utilization of your time.

    Default By the way do you understand Russian......

    Do you understand Russian? Then why the heck do you switch on Russian channels----to see 'em undress.

    No doubt, Russian channels have quite a big following in Indian although no one can understand a word of Putin's speech.

    Default Russians Sessions!

    Watching Russian Sessions at night must be surely disturbing your sleep, Funny Guy. I see your eyes are red every morning.

    Don't get me wrong I am talking of the sessions of Duma--the Russian Parliament? I too was a great follower of proceedings of The Parliament in the Soviet Unions but through Books?

    Happy watching the Not-So-Idiot Box
