Kannadi, (Saturday 2200 hrs / Show Anchor - TN Gopakumar)
For nearly two decades, TN Gopakumar’s Kannadi (Mirror) has been the voice of the marginalised and the oppressed.
India’s impressive growth story is pockmarked with the silences of her poor millions
Her grotesque inequalities embarrass us, but, Kannadi forces the reality of India upon us in its stark naked form, jostling us out of the state of denial, prodding our conscience and forcing us to act.
