Doordarshan having completed glorious sixty years

Dear Editor,
Doordashan has completed glorious sixty years having given many prominent unmatched TV serials including extremely popular Ramayana and Mahabharat which in popularity-rating crossed boundary of nation with people even in neighbouring Pakistan, Nepal and other countries glued to TV-screens during telecast of these ever-educative epic-serials. Curfew-like situation used to be in India during telecast of these TV serials.
It is good that Dordarshan still telecasts programmes of national importance like those held in Rashtrapati Bhawan and Sansad Bhawan at very special occasions. Private TV channels running purely for increasing TV-ratings never care for quality-programmes or unbiassed news-bulletins. Rather these private TV-channels are badly harming viewers by making them TV-addicted through never-ending Tv-serials where recently one of such Tv-serial crossed 3000th episode.
It should be made compulsory for every private TV news-channel to telecast at least one daily prime-time news-bulletin followed by some news-based programme like Parliament-News with video-clippings for say just half-an-hour say at 8 pm. Feasibility for compulsorily live-telecast of some very special TV programmes from Doordarshan by all private TV channels like those held at Rashtrapati Bhawan and Sansad Bhawan.
