India, oh India. How diverse you are! Many individual states have more diversity than nations in other parts of the world. But, today I had (another) good laugh. As I perused Airtel channels on TV, I clicked “entertainment” and then “English.”
Imagine my excitement when I saw a new channel listed under English Entertainment…
You see, when you live away from “home” you watch shows that you may not otherwise watch. It is a “bit” of home. So while I LOVE reality television, I watch repeats of reality tv here (For those wondering of my 3 truths and a lie, I do love reality tv and I only know English)
Anyway back to the excitement of a new channel!
