The future of Broadcast TV (Column: Talking Point)
For over 30 years TV has been the dominant form of entertainment in India and the world. It is estimated that around 850 million people have access to a TV set in India. On an average 250 million Indians watch Broadcast television every day and on special occasions like a cricket match or an important event, the viewership goes up to 400 million. Only China has more viewers than India but Indians have a much wider array of channels to choose from. Such a large audience has obviously had a large influence -- social, cultural and political. TV is also the biggest marketing tool grabbing the attention of half a billion eyeballs. It has also an important role in dissemination of information and arguably some impact of the politics of the nation. Little surprise that India has the biggest universe of TV channels in the world -- over 800, of which nearly 400 are news channels. Though it is regulated today, clumsily I may add, TV has thrived in spite of various government interventions of the past 4 decades.

Preparing for an attention deficit audience (Column: Talking Point)
A surfeit of choices and too many alternate options of engagement are gradually eating into the time spent before the box. Although Indians still spend nearly four hours a day watching TV, the shift to alternate screens is happening fast. Broadcast TV now faces a media landscape which its once prime position is being threatened. A shift in socio-cultural preferences is igniting this change in viewing habits. Cord cutting, as the phenomenon of actually giving up your Cable or Satellite connection which is quite apparent in markets like the US, is now slowly making an entry into Indian homes. I know many people who now access all their news and entertainment via Internet and on demand is becoming more dynamic and democratic than ever before. As broadcasters, we can propagate programmes online and on demand, and if we can catch the viewers attention, they will be discussed and recommended by thousands of people on social networks in real time, becoming instantly accessible by new viewers.

Years ago a policy decision of great administrative value was taken by the Centre to put the newly inducted officers of all these services together for a short 'Foundation Course' at what is now the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) at Mussoorie, before they dispersed to join the establishments of their respective services at other places for a full length specialised training.
