Doordarshan celebrates its 60th year today. The iconic National Broadcaster DD was started on the same day in 1959. Only with the DD and its Metro channels, the people of India were entertained, the whole year, before the invasion of the private satellite channels. Almost all the programs telecasted by DD were useful and entertaining. DD National was the only channel that had been telecasted nationwide through the antenna and the Metro channels were telecasted only for the regional metro cities.
When DD was the sole ruler in the entertainment area, the people were good and had communication with their neighbors, unlike the people, who are deeply drowned into the TV serials and not even knowing, who lives in their next door. DD days were golden days, where people were free, knowledgeable and friendly. Happy DD 60! We wish DD to continue its service as ever!
