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?

    These are real, genuine, They are verifiable and student records and
    transcripts are also available. This little known secret has been
    kept quiet for years. The opportunity exists due to a legal loophole
    allowing some established colleges to award degrees at their discretion.

    With all of the attention that this news has been generating, I wouldn't
    be surprised to see this loophole closed very soon.

    It's the funniest show I can see on CAS-infested cable T.V!

    Recently, I realized that the commentary was what made it so appealing for me, after they changed the commentator briefly frmo Javed Jaafrey to the winners of the Great Indian Laughter Challenge. That was just pathetic :(

    I saw an episode in which the contestants won and took over the Takeshi's Castle. Then, nothing. Yes, absolutely nothing. The General [forgot his name] and the contestants stood in a line and bowed in front of the camera and the credits started rolling.
