Changing faces

As the tear-jerkers on various television channels go into extended editions, many small screen stars playing central characters often drop out of the serial for better prospects.

In one of the popular serials being telecast now, the female lead has changed for the third time. The serial manufacturers have very ingeniously arranged the arrival of the new heroine _ the character conveniently has an accident which disfigures her face completely and she wakes up in hospital with a new face!

Even the channel seems to be a wee bit bothered about sustaining the ratings of a serial, which keeps changing its female lead constantly. The past few weeks saw the channel taking up a campaign to the effect that it's not the face that matters, but the story behind it.
