Entertainment is the best companion for everybody, especially in today’s hectic lifestyle where one really needs to de-stress. Be it television or movies, there is something or the other available for the entertainment of every individual, be it a teenager or a grandmother.
Television is a major source of entertainment as well as information that broadcasts shows, news, commercials etc. It has become an integral part of almost every household around the world. There is fictional/non-fictional series, cartoons, news, movies and so much more to keep every member of the family entertained round the clock. However, with technological advancement, things have changed drastically over the past decade. Though television still continues to be the prime mode of entertainment for many, online web-television such as Netflix and Amazon Prime and their web series such as 13 Reasons Why and Sacred Games, have become hugely popular.
Another prominent entertainment option is the movies that are a great version of storytelling. Some movies are just meant for entertaining the audience while others are quite relatable and powerful. Few of the movie quotes are so influential that people remember them even after days. With globalisation, movies are no longer limited to a particular set of audience in a particular region; Bollywood movies are being released worldwide and similarly, Hollywood movies have found a large fan base in India.
Contrary to what many think, entertainment is not just limited to movies and television; there are ample options available, such as music, games, fairs, expositions, circus, theatre, etc. Since time immemorial, music has been an integral part of people’s lives. There is always a song for every mood, be it happy, sad or romantic. With the advent of technology, people can now listen to their favourite songs anywhere, anytime on iPods, mobiles, etc. Furthermore, many individuals opt for games for their entertainment, which were earlier meant for recreation only. Games can pass the time of individuals of all ages, from a five-year-old kid playing board game to a 50-year-old adult engrossed in chess. From outdoor games to indoor ones, there are options galore. Of late, online gaming has become quite popular all around the world. There are various tournaments being held with participants coming from different countries. In some countries, gaming has become a lucrative career with players being treated as celebrities. Besides these, sport is the best form of entertainment for many individuals, whether they play themselves or watch as spectators. They can even choose between storytelling, theatre, dance, fairs and live performances of their favourite artists, among many others.
So, when it comes to entertainment, there is no dearth of options available to individuals to escape from reality, which is often taxing and chaotic.
