Turkish dramas... By Sameen

Our media has spared no hype when it comes to complaining about various Turkish dramas that are being shown on different channels. The telecasting of these channels has ensured the loss of viewership of our local dramas and shows. I would like to ask the media: why, when they have never uttered anything about the telecast of Indian dramas on our television, are they being so biased now? Instead of accepting Turkish dramas as competition, our media is wailing. We have adopted their stories and culture in our dramas too, which are mostly nonsense.
I am a fan of Turkish dramas because I think they show the real customs and traditions, and characters who are shown working like common men and women unlike dramas depicting people from the subcontinent — gaudily dressed ladies just sitting on sofas and gossiping. Turkish dramas show the manners and life of a normal person. Except for a few scenes and storylines still considered taboo in our society, I do not think there is anything to wail or complain about. These Turkish dramas are a refreshing arrival and a challenge for our media and entertainment industry.
