Obituary - AIR & DD Stalwart Shri HS Jolly is no more



AIR & DD Stalwart Shri HS Jolly has left for his heavenly abode on 07.01.2017 and his funeral will take place at Lodhi Road crematorium on 09.01.2017 at 4 pm. Shri Jolly had completed 92 years on 19.06.2016.

Shri HS Jolly had started his career in broadcasting from All India Radio Mumbai in 1946. He worked in various capacities in AIR & Doordarshan and rose to the position of Engineer-in-Chief. After retirement in June 1983, Sh. Jolly was given a special assignment as Chief Project Officer in Doordarshan with an onerous task of installing 117 transmitters by Sept. / October 1984. History in the field of TV transmitter installation in the world was created as from 1st July 1984, the commissioning of TV transmitters started and one new centre was inaugurated every day till Oct. 1984, i.e. A transmitter a Day. Government of India recognized the work and decorated Sh. H.S. Jolly with ‘Padma Shri’ in January 1985, which he graciously considers as an award for whole engineering fraternity. He was also the founder President of Broadcast Engineering Society (India), BES and was often called " Pitamah " of Indian Broadcast Engineer Fraternity. 

Prasar Bharati Parivar prays to the almighty for peace of departed Soul and strength to the bereaved family. Shri HS Jolly will always be remembered for his strength, capabilities and for his outstanding contributions.

Shri F. Sheheryar, Director General All India Radio in his condolence message said - 

Calling him Late Shri HS Jolly, is to vomit your own heart with the shriek of grief & agony on his sudden demise.
Acquiring highest degrees in Electronics, he moulded himself to suit a fast growing broadcast organisation & forgot everything except his job and profession which he held dear above all else until his last hour of active service. An officer of unimpeachable integrity, he brought in what was best in technology adopted by established foreign broadcasters like BBC, DW, NHK etc.
Those were the days of giving leadership to youngsters & budding professionals as against despotic pride which trampled ethics after profession began to take the back seat & professionals bludgeoned into adopting servility at the cost of their professional conscience. 
V will cherish the memories of Mr. Jolly until amnesia corrodes our memories.
May He rest in peace.

F. SHEHERYAR
