Its nostalgic. It brings back the childhood.. those days when we used to wait for sundays to watch a film, when a national mourning used to mean absolute sadness in every household, when chitrahar used to come twice a week on TV, when sunday curfew meant Mahabharta on air.. This book will surely make you miss those golden days of Doordarshan.
