A friend’s Facebook post about Humlog has awakened a feeling of nostalgia for the old DD serials. I escaped any attachment to Buniyaad as I left India in 1986 and I regrettably completely missed out on the charms of Abhimanyu Rai.
But the two serials I would not mind seeing again would be Karamchand and Trishna.
Karamchand aka Pankaj Kapoor
Pankaj Kapoor did more for the sales of carrots than Bugs Bunny and Sangeeta Handa was a far better desi Lizzie Bennett than Aishwarya Rai’s more recent attempt. Unfortunately my favourite desi Darcy has not aged well and looks remarkably like he should have been playing in a powdered wig in a Ramanand Sagar show rather than striding out of a lake!
