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.
