Superstar Global, Star Singer, Indian Idol, KBC...

Watching the slew of reality shows and celebrity programmes that hunt for talent?

Ever thought why there isn't even a single programme or reality event promoting science and literature. Big money is flowing into airwaves, but not even one per cent is being channeled to fund any science programmes, what a pity!

Many channels stress on the 'complete' aspect of entertainment and infotainment, but as such there is nothing real of that sort, when it comes to promoting scientific temper amongst viewers. It's high time the so-called Indian channels turn to their compatriots in the Europe and North America. BBC programming is a pointer in this respect.
