Chunauti is an India television series that aired on DD National from 1987 to 1988.


Chunauti was a window into the psyche of college life in India. The serial profiled an idealist college principal Mr. Shastri and his travails with the problems that plague students including admissions, donations, ragging, miserable hostel conditions, drug addiction, irresponsible teachers, mass copying, and other malpractices. Character graphs and a well-crafted emotional drama covering every aspect of college life in detail made Chunauti a big hit.

Chunauti highlighted the higher education system and generated tremendous response from thinkers, planners and common masses. In the serial, principal Shastri faces adversity. In the end, however, with the assistance of many of his students and colleagues he emerges victorious.
