North East West South

You wont believe it … There are 22 news based channels that Tata sky offers as a part of their basic package .. I wouldn’t want my affairs getting too current !.. Incidentally, all i get to watch when i go home is News..Dad ends up seeing the same news item at least 5-6 times a day .. and i keep wondering ..why is it that i don’t feel that itch to stay informed !! What’s with men and news?

  1. He he he I totally agree with you. At home we used to make dad watch the eight news and at that we never switched channels (ok sometimes we used to switch ;-)) and post that he wasn’t allowed to watch news period. How many times can we see crap?

  2. I have seen this only with the older generation though. My dad does the same- watching all the news channels in three different languages whenever he finds time. Does Buahahahahah do this too???? I hate watching tv and so I get updated through the net !

  3. what is even more ridiculous is that most of the current affairs news would comprise of either Rakhi Sawant slapping his boyfriend,or the glam-IPL-war bet Shilpa Shetty and Preity Zinta or what Priyanka Gandhi wore on a particular day while campaigning among other things!
    They can really get onto your nerves at times.You’re right,sometimes I too end up feeling there’s nothing happening worth staying informed!

  5. Thankfully, my dad is satisfied by just reading the papers. But I have seen many other dads do that! I guess they keep changing news channels to get different viewpoints from each of them.
