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!

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
