Speak about a TV program which has influenced you most.
  • Name of the program.
  • Telecast day & time.
  • Who told you about it?
  • What is it about?
  • Why did it make an impression on you?

Nowadays TV is the most popular means of entertainment and relaxation. It provides both entertainment & educational utilities. People feel that life is meaningless without it. There are various programs shown on different channels but the family serial, I like the most is Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. The show is based on the column Duniya Ne Oondha Chashma written by columnist and journalist Taarak Mehta for the Gujarati weekly magazine Chitralekha. The show went on-air on 28 July 2008. The serial is telecasted at 8:30 pm from Monday to Friday on Sab TV channel.

One of my friends told me about this show and its theme. It is about the members of the society named Gokuldham. The characters have a good psychological attachment of love and sympathy for one another that make them the members of a great family. The families of the show to live the life of typical Indian families. However, the characters more often than Jethalal, get into petty troubles up from daily life activities that intensity in a comical manner. Whatever the nature of the problem that a member of the society encounters, all the other members stand by them to extend every possible help.

This serial spreads the love and care among people. The characters make us laugh. It is successful because it does not contain any cheap or vulgar comedy but the just little sensible joke and funny situations from our day to day lives. It is a kind of show which can be seen at any age of a person. I like it because the characters teach a lot of chapters of life full of unity and obedience. That's why this show attracts more people.
