    Must Watch Indian TV

    What are the must watch Indian TV shows in your opinion?

    The ones I can think of in order of priority of me -

    Chanakya - I am obsessed with him. I have read his book (English translation) and another hindi book on him called 'Jwalamukhi Ke Phool'. Have watched a bit of this series and it is superb.

    Bharat Ek Khoj

    Tenali Rama - 10-12 episodes but all very good

    Dekh Bhai Dekh - Best Indian comedy show ever IMO.

    Malgudi Days - Haven't seen any of it but should be excellent.

    Ji Mantriji - Farookh Sheikh is awesome in this Indian lincensed version of Yes, Minister. Was too high brow to be successful for the mainstream audiences and the show flopped. Don't think I will ever get my hands on the tv show again.

    Flop Show - Jaspal Bhatti is simply awesome.

    These were just I could think of and I grew up watching. Most of them very educative, entertaining and very well made. I miss the Door Darshan of Old. It was the best.

    There is nothing valuable about any tv show. Looks like he was right on track with the thread.
    This was a serious post:

    RIP Craigos. Owe you a beer.:(
