Is the future of television turning pale!
About forty years ago, one day I went to visit an affluent family with my mother. At that time, there was no television in our village or anywhere nearby. We only knew about it as a device where both sound and images could be seen together, a kind of apparatus called television. Back then, we used to listen to the radio. However, not every household in the village had a radio. Those homes that did have one would gather people to listen to special programs. I distinctly remember that on Friday afternoons, Khulna Betar (a radio station) used to broadcast a one-hour drama. Everyone would eagerly sit down to listen to the drama on Friday evenings. Many times, people from neighboring houses or even from nearby villages would gather to listen. Kolkata Betar (radio station) could be heard from the Khulna region. After their own programs, Khulna Betar would broadcast programs from Dhaka Betar (radio station) as well. People listening to the radio suddenly became interested in watching television.
