Suddenly all the TV channels have started promoting SMS's. News channels will pick up some silly topic and will ask you to vote on it. Zee, Sony and Star Plus have started bring new singers and ask you to vote. I am not sure what do the judges do on their seat. They have no role to play. An average SMS costs you from Rs. 2 to Rs. 7 (service tax extra). There are some SMS contests through which you can win prizes of lacs. Is this SMS is a real contest or a lottery?
