Krishna TV launch on Vijayadasami 2011: Get set for a heritage channel

Not open for further replies.
CHENNAI: This Vijayadashami, which falls on October 6, one more regional
channel will go on air.

The channel called Krishna TV, will have Dr Subramaniam Swamy, Harvard
professor and former Union Minister, as its Chairman. His Chanakya Neeti
Communications (P) Ltd has become a Joint Venture Partner with Krishnaswamy
Associates Media Renaissance.

Arasu Cable Corporation will offer the channel to subscribers of their
37,000 cable operators.

Krishna TV, which claims to be a heritage channel, will air programmes 10
hours per day. From 7am to 9.30am, 11am to 1.30pm, 3pm to 5.30pm and 7.30 pm to 10 pm.

With content designed in Tamil and English languages, the channel will air
programmes which will focus on healthy entertainment, besides dramatised
versions of the lives of saints. It will also air programmes on Vedas,
Upanishads, and Tamil Bhakthi literature. Swami Dayananda Saraswati will
deliver a weekly discourse on the channel as will Shri Mumtaz Ali, popularly
known as Shri M, a great scholar in the Upanishads. Monks of the
Ramakrishna Math, who are actively involved in the channel, are to conduct
discourses and classes. A 52-episode Tamil TV serial on the life and
teachings of Swami Vivekananda will be among the highlights of the channel in its inaugural year.

Kathakalakshebams by eminent artistes, besides classical music and dance
concerts by leading performers get pride of place. While it will be a
predominantly Tamil channel, there will be some English programmes.

Speaking at the launch of the channel, Dr Subramanian Swamy said, "We may call ourselves Tamilians first, or Dravidians, but the fact is that we are
all Indians. What is our religion? What are we going to preach here? There
is more to learn from our own. People gather in several numbers at the Kumbh Mela and at so many religious affairs. What matters ultimately is to be
united at heart, which is actually missing," he said as he also thanked the
current chief minister of the state, J Jayalalitha for making the channel

"This channel was an idea and a dream of mine for six years. For some reason or the other, it was not materialising. Today, it is out eventually," he
added. Stressing on the fact that the channel was neither commercial nor
only for entertainment, co-chairman of the channel Dr Krishnaswamy said,"We want the breeze from all lands to flow into ours without uprooting
ourselves. A true Hindu accepts and respects all other religions and
