HYDERABAD: Notwithstanding one's desire for own survival and success, there should be an attempt to reach out to the less privileged and deserving, Governor E.S.L.Narasimhan remarked here on Saturday.

Speaking at an event organised by Maa TV to celebrate the success of its programme ‘Velugu Veliginchu', Mr. Narasimhan said that winning alone cannot be the solo motto but beyond that one should strive to spread light to dispel darkness in the life of the less privileged.

Those seeking help should not be treated poorly and routinely, he observed adding, “put yourself in their shoes and you will understand them”.

The Governor appreciated Maa TV for the programme which so far showcased 40 social service organisations working in different fields and said “your experiment will go a long way in lighting a lamp in many homes”.

Earlier, in his address, Chinna Jeeyar Swami said the channel with the programme ‘Velugu Velginchu' acted as a bridge between the social service organisations and philanthropists. Against the general trend of media for sensationalism, Maa TV showed sense, he said.

Praja Rajyam president K.Chiranjeevi said the television channels entangled in a competition for TRPs were coming out with all sorts of programmes, some healthy and some unhealthy, while forgetting the need to contribute to the society.

‘Thought-provoking'

He described ‘Velugu Veliginchu' as one aimed at provoking thought and hoped others would follow the example.

Maa TV chairman, N. Prasad and others including Akkineni Nagarjuna, Allu Arvind and Executive Secretary of Brahma Kumaris World Headquarters, Rajayogi B.K. Mruthyunjaya were present at the programme.
