Today, I was just going down memory lane, remembering the old time television programs. Do you remember that expectant waiting on Wednesday and Friday nights for Chitrahaar?
- Thrillers like Karamchand (Pankaj Kapoor with a carrot in hand and the unforgettable Kitty!), Byomkesh Bakshi
- Popular ones like Malgudi Days, Nukkad, Mungerilal ke haseen sapne, Yeh jo hai Zindagi
- Serious ones like Katha Sagar (profound stories by great writers), Nirmala (faultless Hindi accent by Preeti Khare), Lifeline, and Khandan(who can forget the good actors like Neena Gupta and others.)
- Epic Serials like Hum Log (remember Chutki, Nanhe) and Buniyad
- Informational ones like The World this Week on Fridays, Surbhi (with the dazzling smile of Renuka Shahne), Quiz Time by Sidhartha Basu,
- Others like Fauji and Circus (Shahrukh Khan’s stepping stone to Bollywood), Kachi Dhoop (desi version of Pride and Prejudice), Udaan, Wah Janab, Mrignayani, Street Hawk, Star Trek, Lucy
- Sundays were fabulous, starting with Rangoli, Ramayana, Mahabharat, Bharat ek Khoj, Rajni, Idhar Udhar, Vikram Betal, Chanakya, and much more.
At times I really miss the entertaining programmes of DD!
