There’s always a child in each one of us who loves to play, sing and do whatever he/she feels like doing. As we grow up, we tend to repress that child, and give up the childlike innocence and playfulness. The basic reason for the child in us getting repressed is our stopping to play sports and games. Sports activities are perhaps the most effective stress busters. But it’s not easy to pursue sports once one starts a professional career, except for sportspeople. Hence, online games have become popular with working people these days.  The hunger for playing games and winning in them has been fueled by the variety of online games available to the masses.

Playing gentle social games such as online rummy, which involves using mental skills and strategies and boosts our response mechanism, is both good and easy for working people. As a result, mental, calculative games like rummy and quizzes are fast becoming the numero uno choice of the netizens. Some of the most popular virtual games are as follows:

Popular Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, who has come on board for a TV show which addresses the issue of sanitation, says every story reaches out to a larger audience much better when it is woven with entertainment.

At the launch of the show “Navrangi Re!” here on Tuesday, the National Award-winning actor said: “I used to visit Raj Kapoor uncle as a kid and he used to say something that I strongly believe in…that if we can offer entertainment with a social message, the cause and awareness on the issue reaches out a number of people. In the show ‘Navarangi Re!’, we have attempted to do that.”

The show is produced by Swastik Productions and it has partnered with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and BBC Media Action.

On the concept of the show, Anil said: “I think cleanliness starts from home and then goes to the society and the world. We all have to work towards building an environmentally friendly world.”

Sharing anecdotes from his childhood, Anil Kapoor said: “I was born in Chembur and in our building we had proper toilets. That way, I would say that I was privileged. However, when during my summer vacation I visited my grandparents’ place in Delhi, the sanitation system was very different. There was no flush, no running water, and the whole system was bad. On many occasions, the kids of the house used to go out in the narrow lanes and defecate there.”

“I am sure that even in present times, in several rural areas, things are not designed scientifically and people are not aware of the right sanitation. With the show, we are trying to teach people how to use safety tank, how to use flush,” added the actor, who recently met Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The show will be telecast on Rishtey channel from February 2. (IANS)
