Aishwarya Rao

is one of my favourite programmes on Pogo. This hilarious game show is about a Japanese Count who owns a castle and sets impossible challenges for a general and his army of volunteers. The challenges range from fighting an avalanche of boulders, running on rollers to falling face first on the game boards.

The most popular one is ofcourse, skipping stones. Here contestants(or volunteers) are expected to make it to the opposite bank by stepping on stones, rather skipping stones that are fake and will give away to muddy water beneath. Amma semma comedy that one is.

Despite the fact that the challenges are often repeated, Takeshi's castle is quite refreshing. Considering there are no gold coins to count,no big stars with designer blouses,no helplines, just awesome fun and roll on the floor laughter sequences.

Oh, and i often wonder what the winners (if any) win as a prize?! Any idea anyone?
Aishwarya Rao
Well there's a bridge and there's a river that I still must cross
As I'm going on my journey
Oh, I might be lost
And there's a road I have to follow, a place I have to go
Well no-one told me just how to get there
But when I get there I'll know
Cuz I'm taking it

Step By Step, Bit by Bit,
Stone By Stone (Yeah), Brick by Brick (Oh, yeah)
Step By Step, Day By Day, Mile by Mile (ooh, ooh, ooh)
