|Thank you Vaibhav,
Though VERY YOUNG you have a liking for the old songs played in Vividh Bharati and once which was the only source for us to listen to the melodies of the Hindi songs at that time. I am happy you have the courtesy to appreciate it...Thank you very much....
|I landed here searching about Vividh Bharti over net, and it took me down the memory lane..completely nostalgic..No I''m not that old I''m an adolescent 21, but I grew up in a small town Sironj, Madhya Pradesh listening to radio channels and there would be a lot of disturbance yet we somehow managed to listen to the jingles..I remember since there is no frequency of Vividh Bharti in Sironj I used to climb up our roof and try to tune in to Vividh Bharti. Thanks.
|Nice article...took me down the memory lane. BTW, there must be an error with the name Baburao Chakole...sounds a very Marathi name from Maharashtra and not a Bihari name.
Thanks for taking time to write this story.
|Dear Mr Ravi,

|I am extremely happy to read this article sir. You have shared a nice experience. It's my home town as well so i have decided to do at least a little for it. I have started two websites for Jhumri Telaiya. first is http://www.jhumritelaiyacity.com where i try to published latest updates from jhumri telaiya.
Other is http://www.jhumri-telaiya.com where user can aks there questions related to jhumri telaiya.
|Mr. G Swaminathan, Baburao Chakole was from KAMTHEE and not jhumri tallaiya.From Jhumri Tallaiyya it was someone with Nargis.
|Thank you Sanghamitra for the acknowledgment..if not for anything we should be thankful to the internet era for connecting people from different corners of the country on a common topic..since you work for the press please do read my other writeups also and offer your valuable comments..by the way I have been writing book reviews and music reviews for Indian Express (Chennai) a decade before...thank you once again..
|Thank you for writing about my hometown. Here is a piece I had written for the newspaper I work with as senior assistant editor. http://www.indianexpress.com/news/where-are-you-going-this-winter-jhumri-telaiya/325656/
|Thank you Mr Chandra Mouli for sharing my emotions, yes, the other two places Rajnand Gaon and Bhatapara were also quite familiar and we yearn to listen to those melodies because they have specific time and in a limited manner. Today, we have entertainment in abundance and the music is noisy and so it has turned just overdose.
This clearly shows that limited supply of anything of good quality is always valuable and delectable...Thank you once again.
|Thanks for a wonderful write up, sir.Yes, we recall those days and the lovely melodies Vividh Bharathi offered.In 'Abhiman' Asrani tells Amitabh, his friend that he will get requests for the hero's songs from Jhumri Taleyah. Other familiar places we remember are Rahnand Gaon and Bhatapara, both loated between Nagpur and Durg, another familiar name those days.
Memebrs of the present generation may wonder at our fondness for certain places and names.
