Today, discussions on social media over current issues and social norms are something we come across almost every day. Many take to Twitter or Facebook to express their views; reflecting a strong desire for platforms that allow for a free and open public dialogue.
In order to provide such a platform, News18 India has launched a new weekend show Chidiya Ud which will be telecast every Saturday and Sunday at 5 PM. The live debate show anchored by Navjyot Kaur, engages with public on what they think about various socio-political issues and how they want to get them addressed. It is a platform that gives the common citizens an opportunity to voice their concerns, grievances and opinions. The anchor conducts discussion with the public at iconic places in Delhi and also informs the viewers about the importance of the place.
Last week, News18 India’s team visited two well-known places in Delhi- Hanuman Mandir in Connaught Place and the famous book market of Daryaganj to interact and discuss with public on the trending topics- Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb of India and facilities provided by government hospitals, respectively.
