Pogo is a loved kid's channel. All its shows aim at delivering not only entertainment but also knowledge and values. Its shows are creative and unconventional. They hit at your imagination and inspire you to break free from all the mental limitations. Kids unknowingly widen their horizon and the range of their fantasies. This extraordinary attempt is what the serial 'Sunaina' carried forward too.
Imagine that you can see the future. Not predict it, but see it clearly in your reveries. What would you do? Would you try to change what is going to happen? Would you brag about your abilities before your loved ones? Would it be gratifying or petrifying? Would you share your skills with others? Would you try to help others or would you create for them more trouble? Would you go this way or that? Well, as wild as this fantasy is, so are the many questions that are instantly popping up.
These statements prominently represent Sunaina's frame of mind. She is a 15-year-old jovial girl who bears the unusual ability of seeing the times to come. When she is asleep, the future swiftly unfolds itself in her dreams. Each episode brings forth a new dream of hers and the escapades that follow.
