    Respected Sir.
    i , George Abraham, resided in Pune. Am very keen to know a personality like you what made you think to get a person like Mr. Santhosh Pandith to your show ,there is no problem if you just meant to increase the TRP of your show (nammil thammil ). A person like me am not interested to even watch all those crying serials that normally comes up in asianet .But when i see a show thats anchored by a personality who has finished his graduation from Jawaharlal Nehru University for M.Phil and later PhD and who is also the youngest correspondent to get the Central Hall pass in the Parliament i expect something much better than what i saw yesterday . It doesnt change anything to me or to asianet but of-course its a question mark to you is it worth it to lose your self respect to interview a person like him . now please dont take my things in a negative aspects and i am not even trying to degrade anyone nor santhosh pandit in any manner,let people like him also live-on .next time please be careful in getting in the right people when a personality like you shall interview him/her. after all you are the CEO for Asianet .

    thanking you.
    George Abraham.
