    And the offices (MEA) have been told to celebrate Gandhi Jayanti one other day besides today to collect books and then donate to local schools in that country.

    The problem is that they should do it regularly like every week, then only you can maintain it.
    Do you guys remember DD 1 advertisement?
    1. Cleanliness
    2. Family planning
    3. Sanitation
    4. Iodine salt
    5. Employment and training related?

    The current media doesn't have any of that. We need to get that shit back.

    The government has issued a circular to all government offices to dedicate last 2 working hours of every week to cleaning the office and maintenance, accumulating to 100+ hours a year.

    About the DD ads, those were awesome, some channels every now and then do show some of them, but not nearly as much as mobile phone ads.

    I guess they should regulate making new ads related to social things and use Celebrities to do it.
    The polio ad with amitabh was a great idea and show them with saas bahu serials and cricket match.

    Saab bahu serials andcricket matches are the most expensive time slots for advertisements, which is going to cost the government a lot. Maybe the government should pass an amendment for all television channels boradcasting in India, they have to show mandatory 60-mins of commercial in one 24-hour day, with no more than 5 mins for an hour block. Then a division of the MIB will handle the commercials shown at the various time slots. Anymore commercials the government wishes to show, it will have to pay at the requested price by the television channel.

    See by showing these ads, TV channels are fulfilling their social responsibility which is more than the worth of any money.
    Now government can make a regulation that these can be shown at prime time at TV or give them some Tax rebate.
    For things like this, private channels should not act like Miser Uncle Scrooge Mc Duck, this is very important stuff.

    Private channels are only bothered about minting.
