A rare, perceptive and analytical look at popular television programming in India, and what it tells us about ourselves

What do the TV shows we're watching tell us about ourselves?

Television is the single most powerful and dynamic agent of change in India today. It is also the country's most popular and accessible form of entertainment. Remote Control examines three kinds of programming 24x7 news, soap operas and reality showsthat have changed Indian television forever, and analyzes how these three genres, while drawing on different sources, are hybridized, indigenized and manage to ultimately project a distinctively Indian identity.

Shoma Munshi's book shows us how everyday reality in India in the twenty- first century shapes television; and how television, in turn, shapes us.
