Doordarshan darshakon Ko Namaskar

Doordarshan completes 50 years of existence on 15th sep, 2009. And the serials I watched growing up on DD are so etched in my memory even today. I perhaps remember these serials better than some of the Survivor episodes I might have seen just few months back.
Recollecting some of my all time favorite serials on DD.

10. Neev (this was a serial about boarding school) - Sunday 12:00 noon
9. Vikram aur Bethaal - Sunday 5:00 pm
8. Showtheme - Saturday 3:30pm
7. Nukkad - Monday 9:00 pm
6. Kashish - Wednesday 9:00 pm
5. Chitrahaar - Wednesday 8:00 pm
4. The World this week - (Was it friday 10:30 ??)
3. Mahabharat - Sunday 9:00am
2. Buniyaad - Tuesday / Saturday - 9:00pm
1. Quiz Time - Sunday 9:00pm

Thanks DD for broadcasting some lovely serials.

Oh memories... I enjoyed watching chithrahaar at 7 am sundays with my sister. Our tv time was limited so we would eat dinner at that time. It sounds weird, I even watched those different language movies featured sunday afternoons.

@Cos: Have you?? Weren't they just so entertaining ?

@Shobana: Yep .. With all the competition, it mere survival of DD needs to be congratulated. But wonder if the viewership is there in towns and cities raided by cable TVs.

@HG: Yep ... Watched Hum Log ... I used to find the character of that father very very depressing :(

@Aryan's mom: We used to guess the answers for questions posed by Bhetal ... it was such pleasure if our guess matched Vikram's answers.

@Lakshmi: Sunday was Rangoli if I have not mistaken ... though it was not very different from Chitrahaar ... sunday songs were much more melodious :)
