In those younder years, DD had no competition. For people in any part of India, we had precisely options - DD 1, Metro, and a decorative piece of expensive electronics.

And this monopoly did breed some real nasty bores on the idiot box. There were a few exceptions though. (I had little knowledge of Hindi then, as now).

One was that sardarji;s "Flop Show". And the other was "Tasveer ka dusra rukh". Thank you, Bhatti saab, for enlivining our dull and drab Durdarshan. (of course, we in south did not have much opportunity to view his other shows).

Flop Show: One of the first comedy shows I used to watch in my childhood days and that too pure comedy without any double meaning.

RIP Mr. Bhatti.

This news was indeed a Shock to me this morning. Jaspal Bhatti's sense of humor on TV was unseen before & rarely after.

RIP Jaspal Bhatti.

We will always cherish those moments of laughter he gave us with his amazing sense of humour and political satire. He was spot on with his selection of characters to portray corruption, babudom and netagiri in our system.
Another thing to learn from him is the importance/value of time. In those short Ulta Pulta capsules he could convey so many lessons/messages and today we have mega serials that can't seem to be conveying anything at all

RIP Bhatti Saab, you will definitely be missed!

Seatbelt at back seat could have saved Bhatti’s life. http://m.indianexpress.com/news/%22s...oi%22/1022018/

Congratulations to Jaspalji for being awarded Padma Shri posthumously.
Really a sad state of affair- the artiste who was entertaining viewers with his very witty, original and satirical shows was accorded such a recognition only after his death.
This would have been a very good topic for Jaspalji to delve upon and write a new skit.

"aaj kare so kal kar,
kal kare so parso,
aaisi bhi kya jaldi hai,
jab jeena hai barso"

Some more Jaspal Bhati trivia from May-June 1993 (Sunday) for his fans to refresh memories:
