NEW DELHI: Doordarshan, which claims the largest viewership in semi-urban and rural India, now appears to have gone on a binge to popularise its programmes ensuring revival of popular programmes.

 The popular show ‘Sammaan… Ek Adhikaar’ has been brought back at prime-time on viewer’s demand. The show will be telecast every Monday at 9:00 pm.

 The serial has been directed by Swapna Wagmare Joshi and Producer-Writer is Mitu. Main cast in the serial includes: Rishabh Shukla, Bharat Chawda, Naveen Saini, Nikhil Deewan, Upasana Shukla, Harshada Khanvilkar, and Neelam Mehra.

The story-line of the serial showcases a woman’s search for her rightful respect. The serial follows the story of Vrinda who finds out that she is the illegitimate daughter of a rich man. In the name of redemption, the father, before dying, leaves all the property to her with a sole request that she joins his disjointed joint family.

Her tryst with destiny while fulfilling her father’s last wish; her resistance to give in to a society that looks down upon unwed mothers; her battle to win back her respect or ‘Sammaan’; is the bottom line of the story. It is a daughter’s journey to get love and honour for herself and her mother.

Once again standing apart with its choice of content that is artistically superior and reflects social commitment, DD has commenced a musical travelogue, ‘Nadiyaan Gaati Hain’ or ‘Songs of a River’, a documentary on Indian rivers that is telecast every Friday at 7.00 pm.

Conceptualised around central Indian rivers, the series has been successful in leaving an indelible mark among viewers. The programme is aimed at engaging the urban, semi-urban audience by tying it with its roots.

In its vibrant 13-part series, the story takes one through the history, mythology and culture around the six significant rivers of Madhya Pradesh, namely:  Narmada, Betwa, Shipra, Tapti, Chambal and Sone. Each river has been delineated with picturesque visual, melodious folk music pertaining to the culture prevalent around the river, and conversations from people who have studied, and worshipped these rivers in their own manner.

The inaugural episode, part of its three-part feature, showcased the river 'Narmada' - called 'Namade' (considered the mother and giver of peace) by the Greek philosopher ‘Ptolemy’. The show will then be followed by enchanting stories of the other five rivers during the next three months.

The fourth season of the award-winning environmental series ‘Earth Matters’ by Mike Pandey of Riverbank Studios has also commenced on Sundays at 10.30 am. The programme led to the formation of the Earth Matters Foundation which through thousands of Earth Matters Clubs all over the country is actively involved in creating awareness amongst the common people about the problems around them, which Pandey says is aimed at bringing “citizens’ science to people”.
