Maithili Channel: Makhan

Maithili Channel: Makhan

I saw a Bhojpuri channel Mahua only two days back while I was at someone’s house. Usually I do not watch TV. I was surprised that a Punjabin (looking like so) was reading news in chaste Bhojpuri and even my friend Ravi Shankar Prasad, former Minister, GOI, was addressing the media in chaste Bhojpuri.

I liked it as Bhojpuri is spoken by a vast community in our country and abroad and I wish them all success.
However, an imagination came to my mind whether any Maithili Channel will come, named as MAKHAN which was so important for that festive Kojagra days. Let us hope some persons come up with it.

While on Indo_Nepal border in Mithila region, I saw persons fan of FM Channels like Hello Mithila, Janakpur Mithila etc. where Ramaulibali and Raghopurbali were famous serials where their roles as putohu or bhaujis must have been marvelous which has popularized Maithili without any pen or paper. Some words in Nepali FM’s had peculiar words like Pakrau gel chhaik for got arrested.

What a coincidence that I also saw the Mahua channel the same day and I already talked about it to a person who is very close to me and can have a channel. I asked him to go for Maithili channel.We should look forward for the same.

I also felt happy when i saw ads for Mahua. I thought that it was Maithili and Bhojpuri Channel. but it was only for Bhojpuri. I was not said bcoz something from my state was going ahead and it got much viewer also not only in maithili and bhojpuri. I also experienced a Incidence like same in my nearby shop when i went for purchase something i saw that he was watching MAHUA, and when i asked to him he told me total story about that show, you know what was great thing that he didn't belongs to BIHAR or any bihari language, he was truely from Delhi.

About Maithili Channel MAKHAN, I am waiting much as a viewer and most of as Actor i am also a theater artist.

I could not find or locate any Maithili channel on any DTH service providers ? By the way nice to here Makhaan word :)

Saubhagya Mithila channel is seen all over country, however you need to ask the channel providers.
One may ask Kripanand Jha, Gen Secretary, Antarrashtriya Maithili Parishad 09868551104 to give him the number of the director of Saubhagya Mithila and ask them further.

saubhagya mithila is a pathetic channel and a blot on maithils....it plays almost always bhojpuri songs and shows news from all over india...except 6-7 shows almost all are in hindi.....
