Behind a very successful face there is a woman

Prannoy Roy‘s NDTV (New Delhi Television) turned 20 years old yesterday, and the channel’s best known face used the occasion to pay a rich and heart-warming tribute to its least known one: co-founder and life partner, Radhika Roy, with a clip from The World This Week, which made its debut as a half-hour show on November 25, 1988, on India’s national broadcaster, Doordarshan.

    Goosebumps when I heard the title jingle yesterday.

    Was a must watch every week on DD. After all, we used to get to hear the news of the world only once per week!

  2. I was able to catch it on NDTV and I still remember what a welcome change it was at that point of time.
