The Secret Millionaire...

…is probably one of the best shows on Indian satellite TV at the moment. If you haven’t caught it yet, catch it on BBC Entertainment, weekdays at 10PM.

The premise is this: You are a millionaire and your ‘mission’ is to find someone/some cause to ‘help’. To do this, you must first live anonymously in a community far removed from your home. You start with zero money, you earn your own living through the week, you meet people, make friends and acquaint yourselves with their lives. At the end of the week, you give away thousands of pounds of your own money to people who you think need/deserve it.

EVERYTHING in that description is contrary to popular understanding of the social mores. And yet, it produces a whole plethora of emotions you didn’t know you were capable of.

Watch it at least once. Seriously.
