Galli Galli Sim Sim commences seventh season on Doordarshan

NEW DELHI: Sesame Street’s Galli Galli Sim Sim, the popular preschool programme has commenced its seventh season on Doordarshan. The programme was premiered on 14 February at 10 a.m. with a repeat telecast every Wednesday at 8 30 am.


Produced in association with RedDot Productions, the all-new Season seven of Galli Galli Sim Sim engages children as it educates them on important life skills that enable them to be more school ready. With generous support from the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, each episode of Galli Galli Sim Sim has multiple segments that are thematically linked together to address a whole-child curriculum.


Galli ki Duniya hosts favourite Muppet friends Chamki, Googly, Boombah, Aanchoo, Khadoosa and Hero, and an all new human star cast – Aamir, Pia Aunty, Doctor Didi with engaging stories that teach children about sharing, making friends, healthy habits and task persistence. Grover takes to the streets in search of new word and to the sky in Super Grover 2.0 to teach children concepts around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). The Bert and Ernie animation segments teach pre-numeracy and maths concepts. The Elmo and Parents segment models strategies and behaviours to address topics like bullying, self-esteem and confidence, using vocabulary to express oneself, reflecting on the feelings of others and learning strategies for responding to academic or social and emotional challenges.


Season six of Galli Galli Sim Sim, which concluded broadcast in February 2015 was watched extensively with each episode reaching 1, 10,000 children on an average.


Speaking about the new season, Sesame Workshop India MD Sashwati Banerjee  said, “We are preparing children for the 21st century. Along with the necessary literacy and numeracy skills, children need to learn about self-regulation such as focused attention, controlling their emotions and their impulses.  Recent studies have shown that self-regulation and executive functioning skills are critical indicators for school readiness. The process that enables them to learn about  planning, initiate and complete an activity while controlling their temper, maintaining attention and responding to feedback from others need to be taught at a very young age. The new season of GGSS specifically deals with issues that promote self-regulation and provides both the vocabulary and the strategies. We encourage parents to watch it with the children.”


Children’s Investment Fund Foundation executive director Peter Colenso, said “Children’s early experiences have a uniquely powerful influence on the formation of their cognitive capacities, social skills and even later I.Q. We are very excited to support Sesame Workshop in India to develop content that will engage young children in learning experiences and help them develop.”


As always, Galli Galli Sim Sim is filled with hysterical moments for both children and their caregivers and will be broadcast also in Gujarati (DD Girnar) and Marathi (DD Sahayadri) later this year.
