A to Z Challenge - My Theme- City Connect - my connect with....
Aurangabad-Schooling & Junior College / Bombay- Graduation & First job/ Chennai - Marriage & Motherhood
ZEE TV- Color TV came home; so did the Cable Connection. Zee was our prime channel of entertainment after DD. Hum Paanch entertained the noon with its Anand Mathur & family. Wednesday night 8 PM Slots reserved for Hip Hip Hurray.
Mrs Madhuri Dixit ; Doh aur Doh Paanch & Chota Mooh Aur Bati Baath -are some memorabilia in my list. Episodes ended showing "It's a Zee TV presentation". And that meant we wait for a whole week to catch up with the next one! Weekly Tele series they were, unlike the Daily soap operas of today.
ZEAL - Our Management College Fest. A relatively new college back then - ours was the 1st batch to have a College Fest. From finalizing Fest name to organizing events - had to plan everything from scratch. Committees were formed ; duties assigned; timelines set. As expected differences cropped up- arguments happened. When we realized we are nearing Fest Day- it was preparations in full swing. There was celebration in the canteen when our very 1st Fest poster was out - it read " ZEAL" .
ZEERAGAM - So; if news updates helped me catch up with Tamil Nadu geography - cookery shows enhanced my tamil food vocabulary. Irrespective of what is being cooked- more often than not, there is a mention of Zeeragam/ Manjal thool (turmeric powder) / Peringaya thool (asafoetida). Best part of a cookery shows is - they show you what they are referring to. This pictorial representation helps and sometimes inter-lingo connectivity works, .Jeera in hindi becomes Zeeragam in Tamil [ cumin seeds].
Thanks for being a part of my A to Z series
