Filed under: When I get wild — Celia Rexselin @ 11:40 am

Have you ever listened to suryan fm or radio mirchi? I hope not. Most of you are in US or UK by now and are saved from the torture by these radio jockeys.

I was travelling in a cab today and I happened to listen to it. While the songs that are played are okey-dokey, the RJs were hopeless. They try to inject meaningless words with a weird slang. Even that is ok. The programme that I heard was ragasiyamaai.

Well, now what was that? Yeah, we have all those secrets that are bundled within us. Like our sweet nothings, short comings, latest crush, neighbour’s insult and so on.. Some confide it to their best friends, some to their better halves, some to their siblings.

What about those people who don’t have anyone to confide too? Yeah, they can confide to this RJ. They can call her up and state their problem (ofcourse, a secret is meant to be heard by the whole nation via audio FM) and the RJ will console them and play a song (May be the song Ragasiyamaai).

What can be more foolish than this? Today, I heard a woman’s pathetic story in which all she had endured in the past was her husband’s beatings. She seemed to be very depressed and was almost pouring out her anguish.

And what was the response I hear? “Neengal call pannadhukku romba nandri madam. Neengal kettu konda paadal vandhuteee irukku. Aaadalaam paadalam life kondaaadalaam”…

I wonder why women don’t think twice before pouring it to strangers, but keep silent before their husbands. I wonder how RJs can be so insensitive.

Should one’s timepass come out of another one’s misery?



  1. suryan mirchi is nothing compared to the useless guys running Bangalore FM. There used to be two fellows called Jonzie and Darius as RJs – both shud have been publicly flogged.

    Syam will enlighten us abt pepsi uma 🙂

    Once a lady who lost her husband few months after marriage rang up Comedy time Mayilsamy. Mayils spoke very politely and gave her some words of courage before showing the clip…very well handled.

  5. the caller if he/she keeps themself anonymous, then wats the problem atleast he/she feels some load of burden is heard by someone or to the whole world.. its said that most problems are solved when someone listens.. just listening.. nothing more..

  6. @TTM – Oh, I havent watched Mayil’s programme. Good to know that there are atleast a few people talking sensibly.

    @Syam – Aamaa.. indha janam en ippadi call panraanganu puriyala.

    @Harish – Suchi?? Naan avango banter kettadhu illa.

    @Heartly – Yeah, Heartly.. I agree with you.. When you feel that there is someone who would listen to you, most of the problems get solved.. If not, you would atleast feel better. But my point is, THESE PEOPLE DON’T LISTEN. They just want a better rating for their programme and hence a better revenue.

    People are fooled into believing, that they have someone to listen to.

  7. @Bindu – ennaka neenga, RJ pathi thappa pesareenga? I think Radio Mirchi is the best – where there is no stupid phone calls. Now I am depressed bcoz I can’t listen to Mirchi Suchi and AJ anymore. Where are you living anyways? If u r in chennai, turn ur radio to 98.3 FM and then listen to Hello Chennai – full of interesting information in and around the city, sometimes the whole world.
