Definition

Apologies for the interruption in transmission.

This phrase was seen at least a couple of times a week on Doordarshan, before cable television invaded India. Anytime some kirik happened in the transmission of the tv signal, this message popped up unfailingly on screen.

Most folks would turn their tv sets off after a couple of minutes of waiting, because more often than not, it meant that there would be nothing on tv for at least the next half an hour, sometimes more. This is why kids in the 80's never grew fat - when you get only one channel, and that keeps going wonky regularly, you're bound to go outside and play to keep yourself amused.

Usage

"Yaar, last night I couldn't see Chitrahaar properly. My favourite song was coming, Rishi Kapoor and Sridevi were running around a tree, and suddenly it all went blank. For full one hour after that it was 'Rukaavat ke liye khed hai'. Uff. Why they can't do that when my brother's favourite song is coming, I don't know."
