Surabhi Ke Sau Sawaal
Surabhi Ke Sau Sawaal
Description
About the Book

Surabhi has been one of the defining programmes of Indian television. When it began in 1991 one had no idea that it would become a landmark programme, running for eleven years on Doordarshan at primetime. Perhaps Surabhi awoke something in each one of us as Indians — a sense of pride, a sense of wonder, a sense of community — all mixed together in a format that was simple, enjoyable and easily understood. Ferhaps it had something to do with Renuka Shahane’s friendly smile, which became a household trademark! Perhaps it had something to do with the slick and entertaining presentation of the programme, which was quite unexpected in a knowledge-based show. Perhaps it had something to do with the credibility of the scripting and the anchoring. But most of all, it had something to do with the amazing revelations about India, its history its people, its culture, music, dance, theatre, arts and crafts, folk wisdom and philosophy. The ‘Sawal Jawab’ section of Surahhi created history and entered the Limca Book of Records as the only programme to receive the highest ever documented response in the history of Indian television — over 1.4 million letters in a single week — more than the response of an entire channel in a week! And interestingly, the response was to a short quiz on the state of Maharashtra!

Surabhi’s questions weaved a rich tapestry of knowledge, information, wonder and pride, as an entire generation became acquainted with its own culture and ethos. This book brings to the reader a collection of 100 questions and an elaborate answer from the Surabhi television show to recreate the enjoyment 0f learning. Each question is illustrated with lavish four colour photographs. Here’s wishing the reader an enjoyable time, quizzing wondering and learning, the way millions of Indians did when Surabhi was on air!

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
