Few years back, we had only one TV channel i.e. PTV which I call (Purana Television). How much we were content and happy with it. No live and quick coverage, no frequent news bulletins, no tension at all. Enchanting dramas, classy music, cheerful sitcoms, we are left with their memories only. Despite biased news and political talk shows, every thing was going really good.
Then suddenly, we are attacked with uncontrollable TV channels. At this moment, we are having 64 private TV channels. This flood took all types of standard with it. Keep the few channels aside, I get irritated with the low standard transmission of these channels. Their pathetic dramas, deadly boring sitcoms, unbearable news reporters and hosts, technical blunders, poor camera work and repeated reporting, what they are heading for? There are many channels which are failed to make themselves upto the mark even after spending Rs. 5 million for a licence.
Despite all this, there is one positive impact that these channels have left and are leaving on our society i.e. increase in employment. From peon to executives, from studio boys to directors, from actors to producers, these have absorbed much more unemployed personnels. All the guys who were used to stand at the corners of their streets could be found suited booted now as news reporters and anchors on all of these channels. I hear that some of the channels help new comers in improving their accent and looks. These channels are helping in employment creation and polishing our youth. So don’t worry if you don’t have graduate degree, fluency in Urdu and English or even ordinary looks, you have an opportunity to try yourself in these channels.
And I could only pray that these channels would surely have a better off after inducting a potential person like you. Hope for the best.
