Reality shows….reality shows….! To hell with reality shows. No one wants to talk about them anymore. But at times, one just can’t help. I wonder if my fellow National Television viewers have run out of ways to use their time more constructively than watching Rakhi Sawant select a groom or look after a baby. No, I have no problems with that woman or whatever she chooses to do on television. But c’mon, don’t we viewers have better things to choose from? I don’t give a damn about such reality shows, but being a media student it’s interesting to catch up on their promos once in a while.
Okay, so in the latest episode of ‘Pati, Patni aur Wo’, Rakhi makes out with her supposed fiancé Elesh in front of the baby while the baby’s parents watch in disgust. Next thing-they ask Rakhi and Elesh to have some restraint as their baby is used to being brought up in a joint family. High -end drama. Whatever. What made me write this post is the new reality show that’s gonna come up on NDTV Imagine. Guess what it is about this time? This show doesn’t look like it has been copied. Well, our people have suddenly gotten creative and as a result have come up with a show ‘Raaz Pichle Janam Ka’ (Secret of your previous birth!). In this so called reality show, host Ravi Kishan will help people unravel the mysteries of their previous births. What was I in my previous birth? Umm... great, let me give them a call. You can perhaps see me on Imagine then.
Rather than watching such highly innovative shows, I would rather get drunk. No, no...I’m taking about non-alcoholic drunkenness. Oh, did I tell you this? A few days back, I got drunk on coffee. I happened to drink this ultra strong coffee in Piccadilly. Minutes later, I was dizzy and unable to talk sense. I had never experienced such state before. It actually felt good, a non alcoholic caffeine generated high! Try it once. Gulp 2 mugs of caffeine and then watch ‘Raaz Pichle Janam ka’. It would perhaps start making sense then.
