According to WikipediaDoordarshan (abbreviated in English as DD) is an autonomous public service broadcaster founded by the Government of India, owned by the Broadcasting Ministry of India and one of Prasar Bharati’s two divisions. One of India’s largest broadcasting organisations in studio and transmitter infrastructure, it was established on 15 September 1959. Which means it turned 60 yesterday! But Doordarshan is so much more than that, isn’t it? It’s a treasure of innumerable memories from our childhood.

We bet you still remember the feeling of rushing home after school to catch an episode of Shaktimaan or Dekh Bhai Dekh or even Vikram Betal. But kids aren’t the only ones who had a connection with Doordarshan, it was just as special to the grown-ups thanks to shows like Fauji, Nukkad, Chhaya Geet etc.
