Taking part in non political TV shows is all about fame and glamor and with the increase in the number of TV channels the new trend of presenting morning shows has increased tremendously .Such programs are getting popularity in some typical audience who are quite free and relaxed from routine or professional activities linked with morning working hours.After seeing the large influx of young females toward this field, it is obvious that there are some attracting features for audiences mostly include ladies and youngsters. Becoming a TV anchor may seem very easy for those who still not enter in this field but t there is a lot of hard work and effort required in it to get profound positions in this media . This is some kind of public job in which trendy men and ladies also take live calls from common people.Along with new get-up sponsored by running boutiques they have to ensure the impeccable presentation. There are a lot of complexities involved here apart from just reading the scripts. They have to invite popular people of society and be ready to respond spontaneously to all kinds of live phone calls. So it is not an easy job to ensure that a show is smooth flowing with public because these anchors are expected to entertain the audience with their spontaneous wit and active team work is required to air it on live with lively and fresh intakes ,all mostly depend on the physical and verbal display of female anchors.
For audience it might seem that these Barbie dolls of Pakistan are ready-made females for such morning shows but actually this is a high stress profession and there are times when they can have to work for continuous long hours . These fashionably looking anchors are expected to look extra ordinary even in disturbed time for nations formally dressed up at the morning hours. The focus of professional expertise would be evident in the way she presents show . Having good presence of mind is essential to handle minor errors or any similar kinds of obstructions during the live shows.So it covers to have a glamorous and exciting career, which can also mean hectic working even go on air during the holidays.
Nobody can deny the talent and sharp wit of these ladies who try to amuse the typical TV watch bugs of Pakistani culture in all week days.If one side over majority cooking programs are trying to develop new kind of cooking variety in our domestic culture but on the others side it is creating artificial environment that are developing inferiority complex to large majority who neither can afford such kind of modern kitchen setups and dressing too like our hosts and anchors .Maintaining kitchen for 3 meals a day in normal way has already been considered as one of difficult task for our housewives belonging to middle, lower middle or lower class due to careless attitude of our government.
So such glamorous presentation of painted lady cooks do produce negative effects of distress and deprivation in our tensed society.The influx of such programs might be designed to counter the strong impact of cheap and fake Indian dramas,and our female viewers stick to TV sets by deeply involving them in its confused stories and unrealistic themes.The people of Pakistani media should understand it that two wrong and fake presentations can’t produce a positive influence on declining moral values of any system.It can be said like tha taking cigarette for avoiding drugs is not a reasonable choice.,same like here glamorous Indian dramas can’t be replaced by abundant morning shows for typical class.
TV anchors who present the morning shows their devotion work for prolonged hours specially in which they have to reach to typical set in early hours of day and in this regard they have to ignore more important morning jobs as wife and mothers of young kids.Single women or men can surely perform this job in better way due to less responsibility toward necessary domestic jobs.As these jobs are highly paid by top media houses so our ladies take no longer time to pick this profession after selection.
On the other hand too much live exposures in such updated and highly expensive get up don’t match with highly disturbed Pakistani community due to continuous terrorism like situation or extreme financial crunch .In phases of national setbacks it was so awkward to see the repetitive crying pleas of these decorative Barbies even on the period of national crisis like recent flood or IDPs of swat.Those days without judging the grave seriousness of natural disasters these fully painted ladies in designer outfits were forcing people to help victims.Their one day full dressed up expensive arrangements were creating some kind of irritating impressions for the people who were either busy in flood rescue arrangement or for those too who are seeking for help through media projections.
Such styles of factitious exhibitions simply reflect that weak areas of producers or directors who plan and conduct such showing ups.We as nation are blind followers of western trends but in presenting our lady hosts we have different perceptions and we present them as we are one of ,modern, well established nation of the world that are enjoying harmony and peace situation more than developed nations of the world.
