We were extremely particular that we did not want to sound like any another devotional show, the show had to be unique in its offering and hence a lot of thought and time has led to the genesis of Mirchi Devaragam.  As a brand that has consistently delivered quality and innovative content, we are proud of this show. The segments and special guests will only enhance the listener experience. Our goal is to ensure that listening to Mirchi Devaragam should make our listeners feel that they have begun their day on an auspicious note."
