Doordarshan Kendra Delhi has been planning and recording musical evenings and telecasting them as a series  coinciding  with important dates in the life of  music legends. The programmes are being produced in fulfilment of  Doordarshan’s role as a Public Service Broadcaster and in order to improve its image, encourage new talent, strengthen Doordarshan’s viewership base,  and generate revenue. These efforts are part of Delhi Doordarshan’s strategy to reach out  to the people, provide them  a platform to showcase their talent  and to make  Doordarshan, one of the most sought after channels  in the country. 

The idea for these   shows emanated from DDK Bangalore’s  highly popular and successful music show series  “Madura Madura Vee Manjula Gana” and is the brailn child of  Doordarshan’s Additional Director General, Nadoja  Dr. Mahesh Joshi .  All the  programmes organized in Delhi  have received wide response from people from different walks of life. Nadoja Dr Mahesh Joshi feels that in    today’s  changed scenario  where  the public have more than  500 channels to choose from, special efforts are required from DD  to remain in the people’s hearts and  Doordarshan has to become Samik Darshan and  reach out to the hearts and minds of people. The recordings of the shows will be   telecast as a  mini series  on DD National and DD Bharati .
