Sounds Of India Turns 40

Ranjani Saigal
02/12/2015

Sounds of India, an Indian radio show that has run uninterrupted for 40 years has become an icon in the Indian American landscape in New England. Harish and Binita Dang single handedly have conducted this wonderful show week after week on Sundays filling Indian American homes with great Bollywood tunes on Sunday. 

Fans of the show hosted a lovely party at the American Legion hall in Bedford, MA on Sunday Feb 8 where over samosa and Jelebi over a 100 people gathered to congratulate the Dangs for their accomplishment.   The hosts Palakurthis, Misras and the Subramaniums put together a touching event. The one and only Preetesh Shrivastav  MCeed the program. So many community members came up and shared their love for the Dangs. 

“ When I started my company Leader Mortgage, this was the show I advertised with and it helped me grow my business” said Sushil Tuli.  DJ Yogi had a very touching story. “My parents worked many jobs and life was often not easy when I was growing up. But the Sunday when my birthday would get announced on Sounds of India would be one of the greatest treats for us” said Yogi. 

Listening to the comments from people one could see history unfold. There were those that remembered Harish ji opening up his show for people to express their feelings when operation Bluestar occurred. So many talked about this being the first Indian thing they encountered in New England that kept them from missing India. 

The fact the so many came despite the really bad weather was a true testament to the love that this couple has given to the community. Establishing an institution and keeping it going for 40 years is indeed an amazing feat and Lokvani offers our pranams to the Dangs. We wish them a happy healthy life ahead and look forward to celebrating fifty years with them.
