It was an era of absolute serenity when noise pollution could only be caused by screaming people or the music being played over the Radio. People had hardly anything to celebrate except that one box which played the old classics and new songs for some time in the morning and for quite a while in the evening which would be followed by some national and international news. For rest of the day there would be that strange sound of buzzing bee that played out of that box. Until the television was invented and it became a household name, it was radio that filled the corners of the house with life. Then started the era of television, and in the 70’s people were using both the boxes to entertain themselves. Television industry was boosted with the advent of satellite channels /TV.
There was an entirely new wave of change and television became a must have in every house and with hundreds of channels at the click of a button, people almost forgot the radio and to an extent the theatres. In the late nineties the Radio industry boomed and the makeover of the radio channels lifted the long forgotten Radio box. There was an increase in the number of radio frequencies. These Radio channels beautified themselves and made an impact on the listeners by their trendy RJs (Radio Jockeys) who were no less the entertainers than the VJs of the television. The RJs of the modern radio channels do not have a face to the voice that conquers the hearts of millions. The revamping of the Radio to come at par with the satellite TV has been successful to a major extent and now radio comes as an application in all the smartphones. People like this ‘on the go’ nature of the Radio and they truly find it ‘cool’ to play at just a tune of frequency. Radio is the new face of modern entertainment industry. The Radio signals reach everywhere as a result it is still the primary source of information in the remote areas.
Radio has undergone through a complete evolution. It is now accessible through internet just as television. Going to office and coming back to home, the most favorite activity that the people like to do is to listen the Radio. The perky jokes, the hilarious situational comedy done by the RJs comes as a relief in the mundane life style of the people. The programs that are telecasted on the Radio are so interactive and involve the rushing population on their way to office that people has made it a part of their lives so much that they kick off their mornings with the peppy Radio RJs. Besides sheer entertainment that these Radio channels do they also take the issues from the entire world and subject them for discussion to the common man. This bond between a talking machine and its listener is so integral that they feel incomplete without starting the day with the tune box. After the revamping of modern day Radio, the advertising industry has also been given a new boost. The local businesses have their sales doubled as their services and products can be advertised repeatedly over the Radio and people surely get influenced.
The inexpensive nature of the Radio have made its popularity so widespread. Radio is a unique medium to visualize and to play images with music and words. The truth is that human mind is capable of producing a plethora of images out of the words that goes into it and make the audio effects dominate over the visuals. To an extent the audience do not like to be spoon fed by the idiot box but use their own intelligence and past experiences to create the images they like it to be. The Radio entertainment gives the audience complete liberty to plunge into the visualization and use their sub conscious mind for making the sense out of those flowing words or syllables that come from it. The best part is all this liberty of a yearning mind comes absolutely free of cost.
No installation and no monthly payment of anything, what it needs is either an instrument with an antenna or an application in some smart device and a dedicated group of audience. Therefore Radio will always reigns the supreme!

Kids are always fascinates me in all aspect, I have a little daughter and I have seen her growing up , like any other kids she is TV freak, she always wanted to watch TV and specially the cartoon series and image you don’t let her see the movie or program then you know what is going to happen next., it make me always curious is does these kids always want to watch animated series or do they like any other kind of program which we have not given them chance to see , so I started doing some experiment with my daughter and started to show her non animated program, some of them about the animals some were about different topic but not animated characters ,those were real characters , real people or real animated and what I found it she actually like that too, kids are like melting wax you can shape them anyway you want, We are the one who introduce them to TV and this is we who have made them addictive to seat in front of TV for long time and eventually fed them with ton of animated programs .
I think the major reason of attaching comic character to kids is they do crazy thing which in real time we can only think, they connect with kids with the things kids want to but have you thought that if we could able to do same thing while playing or while talking to them that they want to do then they will be less interesting with TV or any other entertainment media. Again it was always question for me when I try to play with kids is what to play I mean they always wanted to something different then how can you find out game which can play inside house with 2 people and without any instrument. Every day I use to scratch my head and come up with some or other silly game just to get her always from the TV. Sometime I use to pass sometime fail sometime I could able to dazzle them with my idea and sometime idea was just a trash or trashed by kids but most of time it use to work .
I remember some silly games like stacking up glasses on top of one another and then throwing plastic ball on the stack and whoever get most of glasses down win or another one is pirate game where I use to put her inside the laundry bucket and tie to bucket with some rope and just pull her pretend that I am pirate pulling the boat and everywhere is water and she ca not step out , we go ahead and then find for treasures and other things we enter into dark room, we have created storms and such little silly thing , use pipe for telescope or just use bath towel for hat but kids just loves these silly thing and enjoy.
I have observed from all these experiment that kids really are not looked into Tele vison, they can play with you if you are ready to spare some time with them, and they can come give up their shows for you. Just remember you have very little time before they grow up and then they will not have any time for you so please use your time for them and before switching on TV just ask simple question with loud voice and then you can see the difference “Who want to play with me??”

We have seen many people who are always decide whether to watch movie or not depending on whether they like trailer or did it have good review from people or critics or newspaper or someone else, really cinema need to judge by 2 min trailer or a review from someone who do not even know.
Let’s talk about trailer, if you decide to watch or not to watch cinema depending on the trailer and What if trailer is not good and not make by the person who has created movie and he did bad job or trailer is not reachable or something else then are you going to judge or garbage that film just because trailer is not good? Is the 2 odd hrs. of cinema is entirely get its charm for 2 mins, if the film genre is suspense thriller then film makers really have very less content to show in trailer because they don’t want to give anything in trailer, on other hands if film has good songs then makers put song clips all other trailer. I am not saying trailer is completely wrong but they are meant to give glimpse of cinema not to judge wheatear film is good or bad. Film is good or bad is different for each and every one depending on his or her own personality
Now let’s talk about review, there are many review website, videos, critics who does reviews for all kinds of movie some time they are right some time they are not, Many time reviewers are biased about some actors , director or so called production house, oh! Yes don’t forget about official sponsors they have to talk good about the movie, so whatever reviews you are getting are they right for you. I think they are definitely not because the basic thing which is different in entire mankind is the reaction to the emotions, sense of humor, test of topic and particular the genre of movies. It is not necessary the film or test the reviewer has you have the same, I can tell you many movies which has got bad or worst reviews but I have enjoyed those movies because I like that genre.
I have decided from now onwards if you are really film jerk and want to see some quality movies then please don’t judge the movie from the 2 min trailer or the reviews done by someone who has little bit more knowledge of films than you. It is always relative, it is always personal preference so if you have missed some of the movies because of those less stars then think again you might have missed something which might not be great or good but still you will like it.
