Today, the means of entertainment have become very easy. Whether you are traveling or lying on your bed at home, you can watch your favorite shows and movies on your mobile phone. The world of OTT and digital entertainment has grown so much that now there is no need to hold the TV remote in hand for entertainment. But there was a time when Doordarshan was the only means of entertainment for people, where sound and picture were visible simultaneously. From Rangoli to Mahabharata and Ramayana, there were famous shows of that era. But among these, there was also a show of the 90s, which made such a place in the hearts of the people that it became everyone’s favorite. This show had made a world record.

Renuka Shahane’s show Surbhi

We are talking about Renuka Shahane and Siddharth Kak’s show Surabhi. This show aired from 1990 to 2001. This show of Doordarshan was everyone’s favorite. Indian culture and local art were shown in the show. People used to convey their views by sending letters. Within no time, so many letters started coming in on the show that even the postal department got worried. People’s letters were brought loaded on trucks.

Registered in Limba Book of World Records

Recently on Siddharth Kanan’s show, Surbhi’s host Siddharth Kak said, “Because of Surbhi TV show, postcards started running out. We started receiving so many postcards that our name was also registered in the Limca Book of World Records. Once So we received 14 lakh postcards in a week.”

He also told that once he got a call from Andheri Post Office asking him to come and collect the letters, there is no place to keep them here. Then the letters were loaded on a truck and brought. The postal department got worried and the complaint reached the ministry. After this, the price of postcard was increased out of compulsion.
