Aaj Tak Wins Award ?????

What is Indian Telly Awards ??? Who are the sponsers ??? Who are the
judges ???
In the whole family of news channels or better to say, a whole district of news channels how come Indian Telly Award for best news channel can go to the funniest, most dumb and 'The Most Stupid' of them all, Aaj Tak... ????
There can be few options now for this question.
1. Aaj Tak is bribing the judges.
2. Aaj Tak is bribing the judges.
3. Aaj Tak is bribing the judges.
and few more...

One evening I reach home, switch on the TV and come to know that They are the best news channel... !! The only thing came in my mind was that Are they really a news channel ??? This was a joke in itself, for me.

A channel whose prime time news comprises of "Raju ke Hasgulle", "Khali aaya, Undertaker Bhaga", "Amitabh Bachchan ko thand lagi" and few more is the best news channel... this news itself is the worst thing that can happen.

Although they are running with this legacy of Prime Time Massacre since long time now, however recently they have really come up with some innovative ideas to make sure the audiance die by Nervous Break down.

The favorite prime time program of Aaj Tak is Khali and his stupid choreographed fights. And to the worst, they put a caption with title Breaking News. I think they have a seperate team for sitting and thinking such stupid one liners. i.e. Sazish samjho Khali, Khali ne kheli holi etc.

I am sure one has to sit in the exam to be a correspondent in Aaj Tak. And the questions would be:
Write breaking news one liners for the following:
2 dogs are getting married. Husband wife are fighting. Fils star are breaking off.

The second hot fevorite is Raju Shrivastav and his same old jokes which he already has played in Laughter Challange. Just imagine, at 8 o Clock in the evening when all other channels are showing important national and international news, these guys are showing Breaking News: Raju ke Hansgulle, Gabbar ki Shaadi, Basanti ko bhi nahi chhora.

Their other 'Award Winning' contributions to the betterment of the society include: Pushpak Viman, Rani mukharji ke Thumke, April Fool: Rakhi ko Krazy4 ke gaane se nikala and others..

Last but not the least, when every other news channel reported about the bikaner's one and a half old girl trapped in borewell, only when she was out, these guys didn't even talk about any other thing in this world. Though they had enough time for commercials. The whole day they were showing the rescue efforts. That was not all, there were discussion with the correspondent on phone. i.e. "हम आपको बता दे कि अभी अभी सारिका ने उबले हुए आलू खाने की इच्छा जताई है, और सुबह उसने कहा था कि उसका जलेबी खाने का मन कर रहा है, और उसे जलेबी खिलाई भी गयी थी. "

And to the heights of cheapness, there was a song being played in the background, 'Main kabhi batlaata nahi, par andhere se darta hoon mein maa... tujhe sab hai pata... hai na maa.. '

Actually, if we see.. this is not with Aaj Tak only.. every hindi news channel is like this only. Be it NDTV india, Star news or zee news.

I remember a renowned media person who on NDTV india, was once throwing a poll where question was: "Sanjay dutt ke apane paas hathiyar rakhne ko aap kya kahenge.. (what you will say Sanjay Dutt's act of keeping a gun with him??? ) options: 1. Unki mardangi(his manhood), b. Unki Nadaani(His Childilike act) c. Ya unki galti(or a mistake) "

Even hindi news website are in the race.. you can see the website: http://www.josh18.com/ this website belongs to IBN network and the level of news on this site clearly shows that what is the mentallity of such a nice group when it comes to Hindi audience...

eg. शराब के पीछे जीजा ने साले की नाक काटी

This website has changed a lot now and may not fit here in the discussion now but few months back it was nothing but an online version of Aaj Tak.

I am trying to guess what makes these people think in such stupid manner and how come they boldly publish such stuff.
Do these people think that hindi news audience is fool and they have do not have any interest in national and international news ??? Or do they think that Hindi Audience cannot appreciate Indo-US nuclear deal ????

I am giving a BIG THUMB DOWN to Aaj Tak's Best News Channel award.

We all have been discussing the same annoyance towards these hindi news channels but did nothing in real means to put our voice against such crap.
I appreciate Abhishek's initiative to raise a finger and make one spare a moment to think after reading his blog.
