Well, your top favourite TV channel and programme actually corresponds with mine. I am also a big fan of the "Mirakkel Akkel Challenger" in ZEE Bangla. Star Ananda was also my favourite news channel but I found them often deviating from their standpoints. Sometimes, say after the huge success of Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Congress in the last Assembly election, Star Ananda presented itself as a big follower of TMC. After a few months, they turned a bit pro-Leftist. Now with the municipal elections approaching, they seem to go back to their rightist position.
Kolkata TV and Tara News are presently my favourite news channels.
During my first year at the graduation I watched Sangeet Bangla regularly since one of my friends, Saloni, was there as a VJ. After she had departed my interest gradually lessened.
Sometimes I watch "Ekhane Akash Nil" in Star Jalsa, solely because one of my ex-friends acted there. We were best friends from our childhood till I had to leave her as situations demanded so. I got to be rude with her, though I am not sorry and she has got what she deserved. Nevertheless, I still feel for her, hence switch on the TV to see her acting.
Also, DD Bangla is my alltime favourite since it is a complete projection of West Bengal for all kinds of Bengali watchers irrespective of their classes and conditions.
