The News

A typical news show.

Anchor: This is breaking news. We bring you news like you have never seen it. Three die in a train accident in Jamungaon. The minister declares that there is no sign of sabotage. Kin of dead get 25 lakhs each, injured, 1 lakh each. The Prime Minister has expressed deep sorrow at the incident. And now, for more on this, we will go to our correspondent Shivani, on ground zero.
Shivani, what do you have for us?

Shivani: Thanks, Rumpeltiltzkin (or whatever). Three people have died in a train accident here at Jamungaon. The minister has declared that there is no sign of sabotage. Kin of dead will get 25 lakhs each, injured, 1 lakh each. The Prime Minister has expressed deep sorrow at the incident.

Anchor: Thank you, Shivani. Our second story today is about the reforms in the power sector. The power minister just said that there will be major reforms in the power sector, including generation, transmission, distribution. We have an expert with us here, Mr. Taraporewala, who will tell us more about what we need.
Mr. Taraporewala, what do you think we need to do to reform our power sector?

Mr. T: Well, I think we need major reforms in generation, transmission and distribution, to take us to the next century.

Anchor: Thank you, Mr. Taraporewala. We go into a short break, and will be back with (back) breaking news!

may be they can start breaking bread (with the news) - may add marketing /product placement opp that way?
What bread are you breaking? Well lets ask our expert Mr. Pavwalla - yes that is a flat bread which is initially a round ball rolled to become flat and then grilled. Its breaking under duress comes easy when dipped in ghee.

Thanks, Hari, Nikita, all we can do is break our heads, I guess.

DH, I am for breaking the anchors' bones. But then we will just have 'boneless' and spineless news.
