Our local TV channels mostly broadcast common programmes like drama, music and talk show, cooking show, and of course, advertisements. However, we hardly find any programme on education or agriculture. Maybe our TV channels don't find it financially lucrative to run programmes that would enrich the viewers' academic knowledge or would be helpful for our neglected farmers. But we need more such programmes.
We urge the authorities to produce educational programmes for students and agricultural programmes for both farmers and urban residents who want to learn about agriculture and homestead gardening.
