“Jab mai 8 saal ka tha tab jo sabse popular program tha jab Doordarshan par hindi feature film dikhayi jaati thi.. aadhi film Saturday ko dikhayi jaati thi aur bachi hui aadhi film Sunday ko dikhate the, tab pados ke ghar me jaha hum film dekhne jaate the unhone Saturday ki aadhi film dikhayi aur jab mai Sunday ko wapas bachi hui film dekhne gaya tab unhone apne ghar ke darwaaze band kar diye. Mai jab waapas lauta tab meri aankhon me aasu the.. Babuji ne jab puchha ki kya hua tab mai bola “aadhi film dekhi thi, aur baaki dekhne gaye toh unhone darwaaze band kar liye”.. unhone kaha ki jab kisi doosre ke ghar me kisi teesre ko TV par dekhne jaate ho, agar dum hai toh kuch aisa karke dikhao ki tum TV par aao aur log tumhe dekhe.”
