I think that a large chunk of TV coverage is related to politics, cinema and world events which are not pleasant. This applies to almost all TV channels. Somehow, I have been observing a welcome change in this direction.
For example, DD Bharati channel has been telecasting very interesting literary and cultural programs such as a writers' workshop that took place in Thimphu, Bhutan and an interview with Jayant Kripalani, writer, actor and director (in this morning's `Aaj Savere' meaning `This Morning'). I had the pleasure of watching Jayant's excellent action for the first time in the comedy serial `Ghar Jamaai' on Delhi channel of Door Darshan during the late '80s.
