My talk show in mumbai :

We all are very well aware of the age old adage that the only thing constant is change. And in these modern ​times this change is so rapid that we hardly have time to sit up and ​notice if ​it​​ is heralding us into something newer, something better.

​For it is important and imperative that we do so because to change, is also to evolve.  ​

But does this necessarily happen? Are we Gujaratis, generally speaking as a community and, artistically in particular, been evolving?

Have popular Gujarati performing arts like theater, films, television and radio evolved over the decades? 

And what about the Gujarati audience, has it's acceptability and preference changed for the better?

There is no doubt that we have come a long way from Bhavai and Bhangwadi in theater; from subjects of saints and social family dramas in films; from Santakukdi to present day family soaps on television and from Akashvani to 24 hour FM radio but there are certain questions that beg to be answered. Have all these popular performing art forms evolved in terms of content and treatment, are they fulfilling their role and objectives, are they equal match to those from other languages, is the envelope being pushed enough and lastly, have they been able to stay relevant to the young Gujaratis? 

This talk show is an attempt to try and address these questions and offer some insights. It will be a no holds barred, hard (and critical) look at the progress ( or otherwise) of Gujarati theater, films, television, radio and the audience. 

Doing this will be a highly experienced panel of eloquent speakers who are not only distinguished because of their multi disciplinary work but who also are highly regarded for their plain speaking, who do not shy away from calling a spade a spade; an ace, a joker.
