Netizens celebrate 61 glorious yrs of Doordarshan


Doordarshan completed 61 glorious years today (September 15). India’s first television service provider Doordarshan was established on Sep 15, 1959.

The channel gave some iconic shows like Ramayan, Mahabharat, Shaktiman, Chandrakanta and the list goes on. It built the childhood and shaped the future of the 80’s and 90’s generation.

Netizens shared memories of how the channel inspired and entertained them in their growing up years. Some even expressed that the content of the channel was way ahead of its time and even the logo is equally impressive.

A user wrote, “Don’t know who designed @DDNational introduction… Please share if you have details who made it what was the inspiration behind it. No channel in world have that.”

A look at more such tweets:

While the channel was lagging behind in the TRP race owing to the growing number of satellite channels and TV shows, the nationwide lockdown period got all citizens head to this channel. Reason: The comeback and rerun of all the iconic shows that aired during the time.

The channel once again boasted of some record-breaking TRPs as production of TV shows on other channels came to a halt. With nowhere to go, audiences revisited all the iconic shows and remembered their childhood. Young audiences too, took interest in the iconic serials.
