As India celebrates its 75th Republic Day, Doordarshan has burst into life once again, a yearly spectacle that never fails to dazzle. Today, it’s as if the world revolves around Doordarshan, with other channels merely existing in its shadow. For this fleeting moment, we unanimously turn to the state-owned public television broadcasting channel, immersing ourselves in the 90-minute parade, finding solace in the nostalgia of good old DD TV amid the moments of national splendour.
However, this day-long rendezvous with Doordarshan is an anomaly in our viewing habits. The rest of the year witnesses a different story, prompting the internet to unleash a memefest, vividly illustrating the stark contrast in Doordarshan’s popularity between January 26th and the remaining 364 days (365 this year).

Simultaneously, Doordarshan’s YouTube channel is currently hosting a live stream of the Republic Day Parade, captivating the attention of over 22 lakh viewers as of the time of writing. While Doordarshan has been a veteran in live telecasting the Republic Day parade since the early sixties, it has also embraced the age and trend by introducing live streaming on its YouTube channel, making this year potentially the eleventh in this progressive streak.
