Turn On The TV

25 May, 2019
By Anika Ghei The recently-concluded Lok Sabha Elections provided enough drama to last for several seasons of a show. From family jibes to temple runs, tears to insults, the Indian political season had it all. However, now with the numbers out and winners declared, the focus has moved (at least temporarily) to introspecting the reason for losses, and working on the path ahead for the winners. But if you still need your regular dose of power fights and politics, there's always a bunch of shows - that even with (and despite) the extra drama are often a reflection of society - to turn to. So we've rounded-up a list of binge-worthy shows that promise to make up for the void that the elections left. While they may not give you reason to discuss BJP and Congress by the water-cooler at work, these series will give you enough fodder to indulge in political engagement - while even keeping you up-to-date with all that is controversial, relevant and endearing about politics.
