Aviramam is a popular Malayalam show on Asianet news channel. This program showcases the achievers from different spheres of life. But the real differentiator is the selection of the people. Instead of following the general stereotypes of achievers, Aviramam focuses on people who are tirelessly working even in their old ages to achieve fetes and set examples for the rest of the world. The participants of the show are not celebrities or super starts, but common people who have attained uncommon levels through sheer determination and hard work.
Viewers are also free to nominate people whom they know, to be a part of Aviramam. Some of the recent achievers showcased were : Professor Jippu Jacob who has been investing equipments to make the day to day life easier, Leena & Antony who are continuing their passion of acting in dramas and selling books, Pulluva singers Mani & Sarojini, 80 year old Cook Ummi Abdulla, Martial arts master Othenan Gurukkal, Orator P.K Medini, Veteran athletics winner Thankamma, Dr.Maheshwaran Nambutiripad, 73 year old stage singer Zero Babu, 70 year old body builder Ayyappan, 101 year old Carnatic musician and performer Pappu Kutty, 70 year old Vimala Antharjanam who gives free treatment for snake bites, street magician Shamsuddin, 78 year old Pankajakshi who still practices her traditional art, 80 year old Devakiyamma who created and still maintains a 5-acres forest around her home etc. The program has a very novel message which needs to be appreciated well.
