‘It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.’- These are the words from the great Albert Einstein and it must be said that each word of it is true. The pace at which technology has invaded human lives is unmatchable. The latest in that aspect is the internet revolution.
Now, this internet revolution has begun swallowing the electronic medium of entertainment in a big way. Earlier when a program was coming, all of us used to come and wait for it to watch on TV. But now the channels are putting the same programs on their youtube channels for all to see.
So, the enthusiasm to catch something on TV is gone. All are casually watching it on Youtube and don’t really miss it. The channel people may get Youtube income but actual TRPs are dropping due to this trend. This is more seen in cities but in rural places it is able to sustain as of now. But it is looking like even this might happen under Modi government given the ambitious plans to take internet to every nook and corner of the country.
